Slab Steele and the Venusian Exchange
by Ron Starke
Once the hottest craterback prospect coming out of Texas Space University, Slab is staring thirty in the face with nothing to show for it. Worse yet, his craterball career is circling the bottom of the bowl like yesterday’s grilled cheese sandwich. But things are about to change.
On the eve of the biggest match of the season, a pair of mysterious strangers draw Slab into their web of weird. Lost, confused, and unable to figure out why he’s been taken, Slab Steele is forced to make some hard choices—a tall order when everyday thinking already stretches the limits of his brain power.
Follow Slab on an absurd, toilet humor filled adventure across the Solar System in which he’ll confront a ghost from his past, meet a hero from his present, and ultimately come to terms with a future unlike any he has ever known—all while trying to make it to Venus in time for the Crater Bowl.
