As First Officer on the part passenger ship, part space freighter, The Fiscal Restraint, Jack Dexter (Dex to his friends) thinks he knows all there is to know about "Murphy?s Law": If anything can go wrong, it will. And on the perpetually under-staffed, under-funded Restraint, it generally does. But he never expected to actually meet Murphy. The real Murphy.

Dex hires Orville Sod onto the Restraint just before the ship makes the jump to deep space. Unfortunately, by the time that Dex figures out that Orville is a real-life "Murphy"?one of those sad souls who attract more than their fair share of calamity?things have become, uh, complicated.

A VIP is almost killed? Food systems have shut down? The navigation computer has been destroyed...

Well, at least things can?t get any worse. I mean, it?s not as if the ship is about to be boarded by giant, human-hating, toad-like space pirates? Oh?wait?

Note: includes an afterword by the author and excerpts from many of his other stories

REVIEWS

"Douglas Smith showcases his talent for creating strong characters who are believable and sympathetic?even when they inhabit an absurd world. That world is painted vividly with efficient brush strokes as Smith expertly weaves between Murphy's misadventures on board the Fiscal Restraint and Dex's retelling of the same to his captive audience at The House Limit. 'Murphy's Law' is a hilarious, yet poignant read." ?Rainbow Dragon Recommends
