It could almost have been Earth-or so thought ensign Alexander Braithwaite Jone, who crash-landed on the planet Toka, 500 light-years from the Solar System. Then he met the Hokas, a race of teddy-bear-like aliens, with the astounding ability to transform outdated Earth stories into riotous real life adventures. From the guns and slang of an Old West saloon to a hair-raising drug bust in Victorian England led by a button-nosed pipe-puffing Hokan of Sherlock Holmes, the Hokas demand that Alex Jones live it all along with them. Suddenly his ordinary military career is changed into a crazy world of intergalactic adventure, as he tries, without much success, to bring his furry, alien charges along the road to civilization, sanity, and a more respectable social rating in the Interbeing league.
