Set a course for intercourse in this raucous space opera from Yoss, "Cuba's premiere science-fiction writer" (VICE), where humans explore the limits of the Milky Way--and their libidos.
In the 24th century, Josu Vald s' rise from an orphan in the slums of Rubble City, Cuba to one of the galaxy's most accomplished explorers was nothing short of meteoric. On the streets, Josue raced cockroaches for cash--until he discovered his true-calling: as a sexual ambassador for humanity and the Nu Barsa colony.
Every so-called "condomnaut" knows that diplomacy and trade deals depend on sexual pacts in the galactic community--and every encounter becomes a close encounter. While some condomnauts have been raised and genetically enhanced to meet the needs of any tentacled insectoid in the galaxy, Josu is a natural whose ego could eclipse the big dipper. Our intrepid condomnauts travel light years across the galaxy and discover that old rivalries--and prejudices--are never far behind. When the first extragalactic beings arrive in the Milky Way, and with them the potential to negotiate for extraordinary new technologies, Josu must call upon every ounce of his talent to seal the deal for his colony and all of humanity.
Indirectly investigating current sexual mores, Cuban science fiction rock star Yoss plays upon stereotypes while making it clear that under Communist Cuba what is daring is not always funny and vice versa. Following the success of Super Extra Grande and A Planet for Rent, Yoss brings us another uproarious space adventure with Condomnauts, a wildly inventive and unapologetic tale that would make even Barbarella blush.
