In his hilarious new sci-fi series, Jim C. Hines introduces the unlikely heroes that may just save the galaxy: a crew of space janitors.

The Krakau came to Earth to invite humanity into a growing alliance of sentient species. However, they happened to arrive after a mutated plague wiped out half the planet, turned the rest into shambling, near-unstoppable animals, and basically destroyed human civilization. You know—your standard apocalypse.

The Krakau’s first impulse was to turn around and go home. (After all, it’s hard to have diplomatic relations with mindless savages who eat your diplomats.) Their second impulse was to try to fix us. Now, a century later, human beings might not be what they once were, but at least they’re no longer trying to eat everyone. Mostly.

Marion “Mops” Adamopoulos is surprisingly bright (for a human). As a Lieutenant on the Earth Mercenary Corps Ship Pufferfish, she’s in charge of the Shipboard Hygiene and Sanitation team. When a bioweapon attack wipes out the Krakau command crew and reverts the rest of the humans to their feral state, only Mops and her team are left with their minds intact.

Escaping the attacking aliens—not to mention her shambling crewmates—is only the beginning. Sure, Mops and her team of space janitors and plumbers can clean the ship as well as anyone, but flying the damn thing is another matter.

As they struggle to keep the Pufferfish functioning and find a cure for their crew, they stumble onto a conspiracy that could threaten the entire alliance… a conspiracy born from the truth of what happened on Earth all those years ago.

Reviews

A Funny Space Opera by Curtis (Posted on 9/22/2018)
This is a Great story, with a fair amount of comedy. The tech on the story was well done and believable. I look hard core SciFi, but this the first story i remember with janitorial functions explained. VERY RECOMMENDED IF YOU LIKE SciFi AND HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR.
Terminal Alliance by J (Posted on 9/1/2018)
This is my first space opera listen, but I decided to give it a try since I've enjoyed other books by Jim C. Hines. My concern that the GA version was shorter than the narrated book was alleviated within minutes. It jumps right in, and character development is done more through actions and dialogue than description. Terminal Alliance was a fun listen with great sound effects - the deep space hums made the car speakers vibrate, which added to the atmosphere.
Good, but room for growth. by Scott (Posted on 9/1/2018)
I liked this story and the revelations near the end make it really worth reading. I'm looking forward to the next book when it comes out and hope it also gets the GA treatment.
Humans caught a disease and turned into zombies somewhat like 28 days later but tougher. Then aliens find them generation later and turn their feral descendent's into sapient beings again. But their is a mystery about why and how they could. Like the book.
Like 'Serrano Legacy'? Try this. by Catdaddy (Posted on 8/21/2018)
Though promoted as a “comedy” series, Janitors would more accurately described as “mildly irreverent.” It is far closer in tone to “Serrano Legacy” than to, say, “Nuclear Bombshell.” This is not a bad thing; it is a worthy action series with highly engaging characters. It is, however, less focused on humor than on politics and physics. Like hard sci-fi series, e.g., “Vatta’s War,” the narrative has realistic depictions of space travel and combat: lag, acceleration, inertia, even xenobiology. Elizabeth Moon would be proud.

The series has a few minor instances of language and minor wounds, but is easily a mild PG-13, suitable for about 12 and up. Recommended.
Bizzarely entertaining by Daniel (Posted on 8/19/2018)
I had no idea what to expect. I was kind if expecting a slap stick humor but it a really compelling story. I had a Titan AE visual in my head. I loved how cleaver the characters were and usuing there jantorial skills to combat. Sounds like a joke but it genuely sounded like it made sense.

The music was awesome I love the extra drive it added. The cast was well choosen I felt like every voice fit the character. I am curious to see where this series goes

Only thing is the transition sound effect felt a little too loud at times.
Janitors and Aliens by Bill (Posted on 8/15/2018)
I seldom find a mix between comedy and any other genre worth the needed investment of time to muddle through, but JANITORS OF THE POST APOCALYPSE is an exception for me. Much of the humor is simply in the premise, and the reader/listener is not bludgeoned with it by the author. While I had a difficult time visualizing the various alien species (seems most of the universe is not humanoid), the voice cast differentiates well enough. The usual GA production values are in evidence throughout. I'm hoping there is a sequel, and that GA produces it. A good change of pace.
Change of pace by Joshua (Posted on 8/13/2018)
An entertaining change of pace from the typical Sci-Fi type of story.
Great Book by ben (Posted on 8/10/2018)
Very nice book. Read the original and it was good. When I saw this one I listen and made the story even better.
Fun by Ted (Posted on 6/19/2018)
Not too serious, but definitely worth spending some time with.
The Everyman characters to the Rescue by Scott (Posted on 5/31/2018)
so this was a fun little science fiction romp into the future. Where humans are born as feral scavengers that are tough to kill unless you shoot them in the head, not unlike zombies. But these guys are a live and The aliens came and restored humanity after humanity suffered a 28 days later type of situation and most of our population died off. But it left humanity dumber so they are mostly used as solder grunts and janitors by the aliens that "saved them". This has a lot of action and some laughs. Worth a weekend listen.
Entertaining by Chris (Posted on 5/16/2018)
A lighthearted story that's easy to follow, but also brings the hint of a conspiracy in the undercurrent of the story. The fact that the main characters are janitors is entertaining. Even though they are off on a grand adventure, their past comes through as one character relentless cleans something in the middle of a firefight. I'll be adding the rest of these stories to my three hundred some odd graphicaudio collection when they are released.
funny & interesting by rafael (Posted on 5/7/2018)
this was an interesting an original story. I liked it!
very funny by Bruce (Posted on 4/29/2018)
Was some really good spots I just could not stop laughing
It is ok by David (Posted on 4/22/2018)
Not much to say without giving away stuff but if you like what i call toilet humor. The underdogs such as janitors reason why i got it cause i am a janitor so some of the stuff made me lol and there mistakes turn out for the better for them to help in the fight. One part i thought was funny is when they hook up a gaming paddle to the pufferfish ship to control it that gave me a lol. other then that it is a ok story. Takes awhile to get some action in it. I think they should just call the virus zombie virus since it turns them into zombie like things or is it a virus. Something else you will learn as the story go's on if it is a virus or not and were it comes from. If another book comes out i will get it just cause of the humor in the story that is what makes it good.
