This story is filled with action, romance, and Quense's trademark unique, satirical wit-Lynn Coyle

Besides adventure with a bit of romance and comic relief thrown in, the story contains a great deal of satire that will resonate with modern readers-Martha Cheves

...the story was masterfully woven together to keep me entertained from start to finish. Cheryl: Goodreads

Tired of reading scifi and fantasy stories that take themselves too seriously. Zaftan Entrepreneurs breaks the mold. It's is a unique First Contact story; part adventure and part political satire spiced with comic relief.

Zaftans are a gruesome alien race. They stand seven feet tall, weigh over three hundred pounds and stink like fish guts left in the sun. Resembling giant squids, they have eight tentacles that can be used as arms or legs. When in a good mood, they are merely hostile.

All zaftans consider treachery and assassination to be social skills and list them on their resumes.A mining expedition discovers Gundarland, a place inhabited by humans, elves, dwarfs and other races. Initial scans by the zaftan ship indicates promising places to search for the rare minerals they seek. Since the planet is inhabited, the zaftans have to deal with the natives, but they plan to negotiate treacherously with the government.
