Right across the galaxy, people have started to speak the same language, and nobody knows why. Sounds like a job for Karen G. Arianne. Or at least a part-time post-doc.
Resister is the sequel to Persister, the only comedy sci-fi story about academic funding to be listed under the 'Fiction' section of the Wikipedia page on Cultural Evolution (briefly).
Praise for Space Funding Crisis Vol. I:
"I read 12% before putting this book away. I found the premises unrealistic and too centered on academics to be believable."
"Would benefit from the inclusion of characters."
"It has to be said, this isn't a very good book, something the author has acknowledged to some extent by making it free."
Dr. Sean Roberts
"I mean, if you expect a Nobel prize for literature or a gripping global story like Stepehen Baxter's Flood then better not even start reading it."
Dr. Dan Dediu
