The Ride is a galactic tale of sex, adventure, and excessive drinking among those who travel the stars.
My novel “The Ride” is a science fiction adventure about a man who makes his living traveling from planet to planet fighting dangerous animals. This is also a story about the women he meets and falls in love with, who don't want a serious relationship with a man who makes his living traveling from planet to planet fighting dangerous animals. The plot could be best described in the man's own words as "The monsters are easy, it's the girls that are dangerous.”
The story takes place in a distant future where mankind is one of several star traveling species who have spread throughout the galaxy. Communication across the galaxy is instantaneous, travel between star systems is mostly by scheduled public transport, there are no sexual diseases, no girl ever gets pregnant unless she wants to, and sex is just for fun.
