In this breathless and hilarious followup to Windswept, former labor organiser Padma's worst nightmare comes true: she gets yanked out of early retirement. After buying her favourite rum distillery and settling down, she thought she'd heard the last of her arch nemesis, Evanrute Saarien. But Saarien, fresh out of prison for his misdeeds in Windswept, has just fabricated a new religion, positioning himself as its holy leader. He's telling his congregation to go on strike, to fight the system. And unfortunately, they're listening to him. Now Padma's summoned by the Union president to help stop this strike from happening. The problem is, she's out of practice. And, the more she digs, the more she realises this whole strike business is more complicated than the Union president let on...

About the Author
ADAM RAKUNAS was born, raised, and educated in Southern California. A stay-at-home dad, Adam splits his non-parenting time between writing, playing the cello, and political rabble-rousing. His stories have appeared in Futurismic and the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Windswept is his first novel.
"Reading Adam Rakunas is like visiting your favorite bartender. He mixes the old favorites well, but you know he's got something new for you to try. Something that shouldn't quite work. Something that is one part Karl Marx proletariat politics and one part Hemingwayesque rum-soaked conspiracy theories, soaking in a brine of well-cured Iain M. Banks space opera. With just a dash of Things Blowing Up for a spicy kick. Like A Boss is Rakunas' new SF cocktail, and why yes, I'll definitely have another." - Mark Teppo, Author of Earth Thirst and co-Author of The Mongoliad; "Fierce, funny, and fast-paced. This is sci-fi in a world as rich, detailed, and diverse as our own. It's about fighting for what's right, about fixing what's broken, about cheering for the underdog, against all odds. Read it, love it, and then read it again." - Ramez Naam, author of the Philip K Dick Award-winning Apex; "The moment I began reading this, I immediately had to put the book down. I was simply too sick with envy at Adam's talent." - Madeline Ashby, acclaimed author of vN and iD; "Like a Boss is one of those rare, perfect novels that somehow packs huge ideas into a story that is simultaneously wildly speculative and completely digestible. Like a Boss lives up to its name. A masterwork of big ideas, perfectly executed." - Ted Kosmatka, author of The Flicker Men
