Galaxy Blues by Allen Steele (Coyote 5)

Allen Steele don’t have high thoughts about aliens either, we all have our weaknesses aliens also. It does make them more believable though.

Now it’s time to start making money on those aliens. At least that’s what Coyotes first and only billionaire plans. He hires a crew and outfits a ship to bring trade to the Talus.

Of course there are some hiccups, alien drugs, a living god and a gigantic black hole among other things.

It’s a lovely love story also.
