Summary

They may have recently averted a full-scale galactic war, but Cal Carver and Space Team just can't stay out of trouble.

When a Weird Space Thing™ threatens to destroy planet Earth, Cal is determined to stop it. But when they get there, they find the place is still swarming with parasitic extra-terrestrial bugs, and that there isn't a whole lot left to save.

While battling an unexpected ghost of the past, Cal is abducted by aliens. Again. Brought before their covert High Council, Cal is given a choice: save his Earth and doom countless others to oblivion, or sacrifice it, so that parallel Earths may live. Cal opts for none of the above, but his proposed solution might well doom not just his universe, but all universes everywhere.

Featuring familiar strangers, unfamiliar friends, and an angry talking sheep named Duggie, Return of the Dead Guy is the reality-shattering sixth book in the Space Team saga.

A big disappointment, dont see the point.

This series is so good but this book just doesnt make sense, it feels like someone's imagination was just poured out onto a page with no real idea of structure.

I'll move onto the next book in the series hoping it gets back to the original winning formula.

Absolutely utterly fantastic!

It is actually quite difficult to convey how utterly brilliant these books are. In the film space comedy I seriously have never come across a rival to Barry J Hutchinson. The level of genius involved here is really quite extraordinary. And every book puts you through a rollercoaster of emotions from hilarity to literally sitting there tears streaming down your face and everything in between.
Seriously, do yourself a favour and read them now!

Pratchett would enjoy this

These books are like Pratchett or Douglas Adams at their best and the narrator is excellent.

Go Space Team!

I love this series. Both the writing by Mr Hutchinson and narration by Phil Thron is enthralling. Such good entertainment.

So many moments in this book which even Terry Pratchett would have been pleased with.

Funny, Silly and sometimes emotional

The unexpected thing about these larger than life, laugh a minute books is that there is an excellent story woven into them. A story about loss and family and friendship. These books are not a sci-fi parody - that doesn’t do them justice at all. Sure there are laughs - lots of them - but the characters are real - fully fleshed out, likeable- they have histories - you care about them. The storyline is entertaining, fast moving and fun.
The narrator Phil Thron does a wonderful job of bringing each character to life through his or her individual voice.
Highly recommended.

Funny and surprisingly sweet

Each Space Team story leaves me a little more satisfied and impressed with the author's ability to bring fresh laughs and surprising moments of sweet sentimentality. Narrator Phil Thron deserves extra kudos for the pace at which he is cranking out audiobooks for this series. Keep 'me coming.

FUN BOOK

I loved this book, The whole series was great.this one was my favorite so far but you have to listen to them in order and all of them to get the most out of it. it is space adventures with great characters. I fear this is the last one though.

It's getting better all the time!

first book in the series was good

second was even better

and they keep getting better with each book I listen too! love the narrator and the plots! didn't really enjoy it at first as I'm used to more serious titles but it has grown on me! I feel like once you accept it as more of a Futurama-ish title it makes a lot more sense. also it pulls on the heart strings at times too. but not too bad it will real you back laughing.

I couldn't stop listening to this one. GREAT addition to the series.
