Joe Zieja is an author with a long history of doing things that have almost nothing to do with writing at all. A graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Joe dedicated over a decade of his life to wearing The Uniform, marching around in circles and shouting commands at people while in turn having commands shouted at him. It was both a great deal of fun and a great nuisance, and he wouldn't have had it any other way. Joe's also a commercial voiceover artist and a composer of music for video games and commercials. He's probably interrupted your Spotify playlist at least once to encourage you to click on the banner below and isn't the least bit upset that you ignored him.
"As sci-fi spoofs and humorous novels go, Mechanical Failure
was a lot of fun. When I read parts of this book aloud to my
husband, he chuckled and said, 'Kinda feels like Terry Pratchett in
space.' Trust me, coming from him, that's a great compliment.
Personally, I think I would liken this more to something like
"Mechanical Failure is the perfect tonic for those missing the writing of the comedy sci-fi greats. It is as good as Harrison, Grant, and even Adams--highly amusing, clever fiction."----SFBook Reviews
"Mechanical Failure often plays like a sci-fi riff on the 1961 satire Catch-22. It's nice to be reminded that sci-fi can be supersilly and supersmart about it, and because sarcastic homicidal robots rule."----B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
