EnjoyableAfter you get past the first 8 chapters Lots of action, a little sex, a little profanity and some violence OH, and plenty of subtle humor. Sci Fi AdventureI got this book courtesy of a GoodReads giveaway It was a good adventure but I m not sure of the marketing What is pulpy about it I m a little tickled that I read the book on a device that retails for over 1K Besides which, didn t Pulp Fiction books of yore have sex Alvin Baylor Lives has almost none. Throughly enjoyed the storyline I expected humor and likable anti hero, but there is nothing of the sorts here Just a plain adventure story, not worth my time. Alvin Baylor has been living in quiet, and drunken, obscurity since he was disgraced as a Cyber Athlete in college His days are spent laboring for the Alteris Corporation and his nights are spent at his local bar Then the corporation offers him a deal he can t refuse He simply has to recover some tech after an accident out at a mining colony past Mars and they will give him a retirement On the 6 month trip out, he finds a chance at redemption with a Cyber Tournament He gets to see the life he could have had and he finds love All while hurtling towards intrigue, betrayal and adventure.This was a good read Alvin was a complicated character If this had been a 30 s pulp instead of a science fiction pulp, his character could have been played by Bogart, at least emotionally It s the kind of lost man Bogey could redeem so well The story had excitement and fun and I really enjoyed it. ^FREE DOWNLOAD ⇻ Alvin Baylor Lives! ⇪ Alvin Baylor S Life Is Not Turning Out As ExpectedHe Was Tasting Glory As A Cyber Athlete, Until Scandal Ended His Career Now He Spends His Days At A Dead End Job In A Constant Hangover Haze And With The North America Of Fractured Into Corporate Territories, Who Can Blame Him But Alvin Is About To Get A Life Changing PropositionHis Corporate Overlords Have A Special Need For His Cybernetic Gifts He Ll Deliver A Mysterious Prototype To An Asteroid Mining Colony In Exchange, His Debts Will Be Erased And His Fortune ChangedOr He Can Take Option Number Two The Unemployment LineRiding An All Expense Paid Cruise To The Frontier Of The Solar System, Alvin Has Every Reason To Be Optimistic There S Gaming, Booze And Temptation Aplenty Aboard The Starship Hope But Alvin S In The Dark On A Couple Of Key Details The Prototype He S Delivering Is A Technological Marvel That Will Transform The World And A Deadly Female Assassin Is Coming To Steal ItIt S The Opportunity Of A Lifetimebut Alvin Baylor Just Might Pay With His Life
