    Spaxter, by Jeff Green
    Spaxter

    A tongue-in-cheek futuristic thriller featuring a mind-reading gumshoe named Sam Spaxter who uncovers a bizarre plot by a self-styled Egyptian god to steal the creative essence from all the great minds in the world using a device which he has constructed at the heart of the Great Pyramid. Spaxter is a cyberpunk Shadow in a fast and foolish future, complete with an orbiting space weapons platform-turned-nightclub called The Raygun Club, all leading to an epic energy beam battle that changes the future of humanity forever (what else?). Plenty of wacky characters, sensual special effects, and great electronic music.

    One from the
    Soundings series by Jeff Green. Entered into the Mark Time Science Fiction Audio Hall of Fame.

    Spaxterback
    Spaxterback

    That's right, Spaxter's back! Or is he? You see, there is this super-smart military computer that needs to find out something about what it believes is an alien invasion of Earth, so it synthesizes Spaxter from information in an obscure 20th Century radio drama and recreates him as a living being.

    Featuring "Weirdstock", the greatest rock concert that never happened, and final irrefutable proof of... everything! Artificial intelligence, close encounters, cult rituals... and Spaxter sings! What more could you possibly ask for? A boarding pass?

    One from the
    Soundings Series by Jeff Green.
