Summary

Set a course for intercourse with this hilarious space opera from Yoss, “Cuba's premiere science-fiction writer” (VICE), where humans explore the limits of the Milky Way—and their sexualtiy.

In the 24th century, Josue Valdés’ rise from the slums Rubble City, Cuba to one of the galaxy’s most accomplished explorers was nothing short of meteoric. Once an orphan who spent his childhood on the street racing cockroaches for cash, Josue found his true-calling: a sexual ambassador for humanity and the Nu Barsa colony.

As any so-called “condomnaut” knows, in the intergalactic community, diplomacy and trade deals are dependent on sexual pacts. With thousands of alien species roaming the cosmos, every encounter is a close encounter. While some condomnauts have been raised and genetically enhanced to meet the needs of every tentacled insectoid in the galaxy, Josue is a natural. When the first extragalactic beings arrive in the Milky Way, and with them the potential to negotiate for extraordinary new technologies, Josue must call upon every ounce of his talent to seal the deal for his colony and all of humanity.

Following the success of Super Extra Grande and A Planet for Rent, the wildly inventive and sexually progressive Condomnauts is a raucous and uproarious adventure that would make even Barbarella blush.
