Andy Bester once considered himself to be a lucky man. That was before he met Valoria Queeg and agreed to transport her home aboard his small spaceliner, the Venture Star. It was before a sinister colonel of an underground movement began stalking him at every turn. It was before he was accused of attempting to start a war between two adversarial worlds by destroying a politically sensitive pet food convoy. It was before he learned that a mysterious, ghostly debris field endangers not only the Earth but also threatens to alter history forever. And to top it all off, an ancient, bioluminescent seer from the opposite end of the universe has just told Bester he's responsible for setting everything right. It is enough to lead Bester to ask one important question: Has the universe gone completely mad? In MadSpace, there is just one constant in the universe: Things can only get worse.
