'The galaxy is a strange place full of weird creatures and even weirder sentient beings.
'See it through the eyes of four outcasts, banished to Asteri Station on the fringes of the Hegemon Economic Alliance. Absinthe Krull, the Aquanorian with a dark past—who runs The Zoo, the bar on the Asteri. Ori Bligh, a young Terran whose life of privilege has been destroyed by a stupid mistake she’s desperate to put right. Zev Smith, maintenance master for the station, in hiding for forty years for a poor decision; and Cordelia Bane, bounty hunter with a stack of debts to clear.
'When first Ori then Cordelia arrive on Asteri, the stories they hear at the Zoo slowly reveal not only the oddities all four have encountered in their travels, but also things all four would prefer left in the shadows of the past.
'And, in the end, will help them decide on a new future.
'Fourteen stories from all corners of the galaxy and covering five hundred years of history. If you love science fiction, weird west, humour, and darkness, then The Zookeeper’s Tales of Interstellar Oddities will keep you pinned to your seat.'
