Agent to the Starsby John Scalzi
Synopses & Reviews
The space-faring Yherajk have come to Earth to meet us and to begin humanitys first interstellar friendship. Theres just one problem: Theyre hideously ugly and they smell like rotting fish.
So getting humanitys trust is a challenge. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal.
Enter Thomas Stein, who knows something about closing deals. Hes one of Hollywoods hottest young agents. But although Stein may have just concluded the biggest deal of his career, its quite another thing to negotiate for an entire alien race. To earn his percentage this time, hes going to need all the smarts, skills, and wits he can muster.
The space-faring Yherajk have come to begin humanity's first interstellar friendship. Unfortunately, they are hideous and they smell like rotting fish. It's going to take the best agent in Hollywood to make the friendly, odiferous creatures palatable to humanity.
