Captain Zachary Crowe and the crew of Planet Janitor Corporation are adept at handling environmental clean-ups and close system jumps to collect precious ores and space trash. The problem is they have yet to complete an assignment without a mishap to add to their not so stellar record. Scraping the bottom of the barrel, Orion Industries contracts Planet Janitor for a clandestine operation that no one else wants, offering them more money than they could spend in three lifetimes. The mission entails a 12 light-year trip to a newly found habitable planet in the Tau Ceti system. The crew will lose 26 years on Earth due to the cryo jump, but that is the least of their problems. What they find on Tau Ceti will rattle their wits, test their courage, and threaten their very survival

What they’re saying about it:

“Planet Janitor does deliver an interstellar romp that hearkens to the best of Robert Heinlein or Philip José Farmer… A rollicking plot-driven adventure… The dangers are intimidating, the wonders evocative and the thread that ties it all together is always just a little more tangled than it seems.” –The Canadian Science Fiction Review, December 13, 2010

“An intriguing and exciting cross between Aliens and 10,000 Years B.C. – Stevenson shows us a future filled with proof that we should listen to Stephen Hawking’s warnings about alien life forms and what they want to do to us.” –Gini Koch, author of `Touched by an Alien’ & `Alien Tango’, December 1, 2010

“Stevenson’s book considers the possibility of an elite industry of environmental cleanup specialists who take on all sorts of bizarre environmental jobs… Clearly, this is a timely topic that hits home in the wake of the Gulf oil spill.”–SF-Fandom, September 21, 2010
