Starship Grifters

Starship Grifters by Robert Kroese

Action, adventure, and con games in outer space!

From the point of view of his long-suffering robot Sasha, the comic adventures of Rex Nihilo, shortly after he wins an APPLE -- Alien Planet Perplexingly Like Earth -- in a card game.  And discovers it comes with a lien of over a billion credits.

His exploits attempting to save him from the debtors' prison of the galaxy include a forest moon that has about one tree, a Knight of Chaotic Equilibrium, a rebellion against the Malarchy, the question of a planet being blown up, an inflitration that goes extremely well, a bounty hunter, many rumors of a cloaking device, and more.

Lots of fun allusions to other SF works.  Star Wars most distinctly, with Dune and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy also notable.
