    Great. As usual. I have been following since union station #1 and always enjoyed reading. Even if I sometimes have troubles following the names of the characters. And his matchmaking is funny, better than my old aunts anyway.

    Another good one There's skullduggery, news reporting, zero gee vomit, fire bombings and romance. Also, an adorable griffin. Who may or may not be a pet but definitely cheats at poker.

    Humor and SF. This book entertains and Is thought provoking and a worthy entry in the Union Station Universe. I really enjoy SF with a heavy dose of Sociology and economics and good writing. Recommended.

    A new story line Another well written and humorous book. A few of the characters from the other stories and some new ones including a pet gryphon that I really like. A fun read.

    E. M. Foner is high on my list of favorite authors, so I bought this book as soon as I was notified that it was available. I wasn't disappointed. While the storyline only touches on a few of the well-loved characters in Foner's EarthCent series, the new cast is delightful and quirky. Two freelance newspaper writers work their way through uncovering a scheme to bankrupt the free traders and diminish the rapidly developing Human government headquartered on Earth.

Two freelance newspaper writers work their way through uncovering a scheme to bankrupt the free traders and diminish the rapidly developing Human government headquartered on Earth. A new alien form is introduced, as well as his intelligent and loveable pet monster from Earth's old mythology. Trader ships are vandalized and destroyed. The good guys turn out to be as devious as the criminals. The Trader Rendezvous on a Vergallian tech-free world is a whirlwind of energy and excitement. All ends well for Foner's universe again and we can all impatiently wait for the next installment of his war-free space opera.

    A great spinoff worthy of the series! I thoroughly enjoyed spending an entire book immersed in the trader culture and getting to know a few new characters even better, as well. This series has really matured when I think back to the first few books and was trying to sort everything out. It can be challenging to keep up with this universe's cast of characters but it is so satisfying to keep revisiting them. Amazon should pick this series up and turn it into a serial program for Prime Video. There's A great spinoff worthy of the series!

Another excellent contribution by Mr. Foner that is a highly recommended read.

    E.M. Foner does it again! What a wonderful book. He said it could have been the 18th book in the Union Station series, but he went a different direction, bringing back a few favorite characters while introducing us to a whole new "cast" of characters. Some of my favorite characters over the series have been the traders, and the new traders are really great. Teaming them with freelancers from the Galactic Free Press, was a great move.

This book has some intrigue and mystery to it that I found really refreshing. E.M. Loner is a great storyteller, and one of the best developers of characters around. I really hope this is not the last we will have seen of these characters. Great stuff!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. If I noticed this was a Union Station book I probably wouldn’t have bothered. This is the third time I dipped into this universe (but I think the first time I actually finished the book). The writing is competent...it just hits me more as a series of events more than a compelling story.

    Pretty good reporting Starts on Union station(from all the other Earth cent. Stories) with a reporter who is tired of writing about food! She gets involved with a trader who is going to the big "swap meet" on a new station! In the process meets several persons with their own agenda that take her to find out why traders are getting their ships repo'ed while being frauded! It is not as cheerful as the Union Station stories but all the characters new and old keep your attention to the tale and make Pretty good reporting Starts on Union station(from all the other Earth cent.

    I AM AN ADDICT Well, I am at least addicted to these stories by E.M. Foner. There are attractive characters (and some not-so attractive ones), pretty snappy dialogue, and lots of things to learn, at least for me. I've been thinking about this for awhile now, and the dialogue reminds me of my favorite scifi author, Robert Heinlein: not only is there plenty of wiseass spoken here, but Heinlein always had something to say a particular method, or process, or formula, or perhaps a military or govern I AM AN ADDICT Well, I am at least addicted to these stories by E.M.

I've been thinking about this for awhile now, and the dialogue reminds me of my favorite scifi author, Robert Heinlein: not only is there plenty of wiseass spoken here, but Heinlein always had something to say a particular method, or process, or formula, or perhaps a military or governmental system. Mr. Foner is a little like that. I like it.

    I love these books E.M.Fomer is one of my favorite authors. They write with joy and humor. Not the typical space opera shoot em up, rehashed boring stories. The Galactic Tunnel concept gives back some whimsy and wonder to sci to, and usually a good giggle or two. Start at the beginning and read the series or start here and work backwards...the stories are fun, thought provoking and an easy read.

    I did enjoy this, to be fair. I thought it was an interesting set-up, and having not read the series it was spun off from I didn't have any trouble following the worldbuilding and enjoyed the world in general. But I think it suffered from an excess of infodump and a lack of stakes and tension. There weren't really any obstacles here, or struggles to overcome them, and that left the story (and characters) pretty limp. I did enjoy this, to be fair.

    Another winner! I love the Union Station books and equally so for the spin offs. I feel like I've been to a financial seminar/spy movie combo, but without all the shooting and things blowing up...oh, wait, nevermind. 😉. If you like SciFi that's a bit light-hearted, but still makes you think then this and the other books will be what the beetle, sorry, doctor ordered. As always, they end too soon for me because they are just that enjoyable. Another winner! I love the Union Station books and equally so for the spin offs.

    Great spinoff Always liked the EarthCent series, and still want more. This is a good way to introduce new story lines outside the Stryx station, while still paying homage to a few well known characters. I like how all the separate characters start out and come together in the end for a cohesive story. A brief cameo of the Ambassador would always be welcome.

    Another fun read Have enjoyed all of the earth cent books, this one included. More enjoyable characters, another fun plot, and another pet that is a mooch, and is smarter than their supposed handler. Only issue I had was with the two couples, they were a bit too much alike. Author even made typo near end and called Georgia, Ellen. I would also like to see some diversity in the future. Are their no same sex couples in this universe?

    Great world I really enjoyed reading the continuing adventures of the main characters in EMF’s busy alien universe. Have been a fan since the first Union Station story. Love the author’s sense of humor though it was more apparent in the Union Station main storyline.

    Fun times A light hearted, family friendly story of outer space. I’ve gotten into the habit of simply buying everything EarthCent that appears. Good writing, good pacing, good characters, and good plots.

    Fresh and enjoyable New characters and situations, more about how Traders work. A real pleasure to read, and I'll pay a whole lot for a Gryphon. Fresh and enjoyable New characters and situations, more about how Traders work. A real pleasure to read, and I'll pay a whole lot for a Gryphon.

    Excellent spin off with great potential for exploring the galaxy without being tied to a space hub or colony ship.

    This new series based on the Union Station universe is in many ways better than the last Union Station book. The Union Station series has spread pretty far and wide, and sometimes in the main series it feels like characters are doing cameos. This book has similar cameos, but they feel lest forced. Plus the main character is interacting with new people fairly extensively. The book introduces a new setting for the series, with new characters and new challenges. The fast pace and humor are present, This new series based on the Union Station universe is in many ways better than the last Union Station book.
