The Bala, magical creatures, have hidden themselves from cruel and destructive humanity, leaving the galaxy in shambles. Without unicorn-powered faster-than-light travel, mankind is scattered, starving and isolated across the stars. Cowboy Jim has the sole surviving FTL drive, and he and his Reason soldiers are determined to track down and re-enslave the Bala. But on their new planet, the Bala are on the brink of civil war: should they accept Unicorn rule, or follow necromancer Bao Zhi and exact revenge on their human oppressors? Only Captain Jenny, with her new elfin parasite, can return peace to the galaxy.

Praise for Space Unicorn Blues

“Pure wish fulfilment. That is… assuming you wish to be a down-on-his-luck, half-unicorn space rogue, struggling to reclaim his starship and find his lost horn against an army of human oppressors who hold all the cards.”
G S Denning, author of the Warlock Holmes series

“It was a fun read with an entirely unique concept on a mashup of scifi and fantasy. The spin on the Bala being the key to the expansion of humankind – which then allowed humankind to subjugate the Bala – is the kind of sweet irony that mankind has displayed thousands of times over its history. It was a reminder that not all stories about unicorns have to have them spewing rainbows out of their asses, because sentience, no matter the form, always seems to bring about its own flavor of brutality. I never knew fairies and unicorns could be so dark. The book throws aside so many tropes and just does whatever the fuck it wants, inventing an entirely new world with new rules, and I am always in support of that.”
Joe Zieja, author of the Epic Failure trilogy

“Shut your brain off and go along for the wild ride…Berry deftly creates a diverse and representative universe full of all kinds of magical creatures and humans, a strange, wacky world.”
LA Times 

“Flawless… another must-read from Angry Robot.”
The Fantasy Inn

“This story was wonderfully well written, and it was paced really well. There was always something going on that made it hard to put down, and so I ended up reading it much faster than I anticipated. Well into the wee hours of the night, and well past the end of my lunch break at work.”
