Galaxy Blues - Allen M. Steele

In part of Allen M. Steele's Coyote Universe a discovered stowaway manages to make it to Coyote, after being busted for being involved in an exam cheating scandal.

However, he ends up in the slammer there and is 'convinced' by a wealthy entrepreneur to do some piloting for him, in a perhaps less than ethical trade deal.

Aliens, diplomacy and danger await, along with a bit of silliness.

This is a lighter story in tone than the couple of Coyote collections I have read, but is basically solid, although the end is only ordinary.

3.5 out of 5
