Product Description

Walter Stickle is back in this exciting, alien-packed sequel to Walter Stickle and the Galactic Rangers!

The parasitic, mind-controlling Goldotti, the most feared creatures in the galaxy, have broken through the containment zone surrounding their home world of Deamus, threatening to spread across the stars like an incurable disease. They will stop at nothing in their mad quest for total domination of all intelligent life.
Only two things stand in their way. One is the most powerful force in the galaxy, a group of soldiers from the planet Argon who will journey to the ends of the universe and back to protect us all. They are the Galactic Rangers. The other is some guy from Pitville, New Jersey, who doesn’t even own a car and who thinks it’s an adventure to order something other than pancakes at the diner. He is Walter Stickle.
Follow the Galactic Rangers in their latest adventure as they battle the Goldotti and search for lost comrades on the hostile alien world of Gin-Vedra. Follow Walter in his continuing misadventures as he battles his annoying neighbor, Steve “Floodlight” Williams, and searches for better cell phone reception in the most normal town in America. Enjoy the twists, turns, and the surprising conclusion when their worlds collide.

Please note: Though this book is the second in the continuing adventures of Walter Stickle, the story stands on its own to the extent that there is sufficient explanation of what occurred in the first book to understand what is happening in this one. That being said, it should also be noted that, by skipping the first book, you are missing out on all the fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars The adventure continues ~~~ 29 March 2015
By EE Wilder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Landing in New York from his trip to Paris, Walter Stickle had no memory of his part in an alien spaceship situation because his mind had been scrubbed free by an Argonian captain of the Galactic Rangers. His memories were full of the glorious vacation to France made even more so by new friends Vivien and Millie (also with him in the space adventure but also scrubbed from his mind.) Back home at Pitville,falling into the same old - same old routine was not in the picture for Walter. He broke lifetime habits and shunned his usual breakfast, old reliable shirt and tie outfit to set out not caring about punctuality on his walk to the social security office. Ah, all was not the same in Pitville. The Goldotti, feared throughout the universe for attaching to other lifeforms and taking over their worlds were infecting Walter's town. They were thought fully contained on Deamus but one infected life form escaped towards the space sector that held earth. Earthlings were not esteemed by the Galactic Rangers for when studied they were no near intelligent enough to join the universe as all they did was fight one another rather than work together for their planet. And so Larry Enright finds a way for Walter Stickle to battle the menace. I enjoy the authors dry humor. The mental conversations between Walter and his Goldotti parasite were cleverly done. If you have read "Walter Stickle and the Galactic Rangers" then you will enjoy the next chapter in Walter's life and those he loves. If you have not and enjoy cleverly done Science Fiction, then jump into the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walter Rides Again! 27 February 2015
By Anthony Palermo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Wimpy Walter Stickle is growing a backbone…and it’s got a name – Goldotti. If you read Larry Enright’s first installment of the Stickle saga, you might remember him [Stickle, not Goldotti…or Enright, for that matter] as an early middle aged nerd working for Social Security who helped a suspiciously needy group of aliens receive enough money to survive incognito on Planet Earth. Turned out these were heroes in hiding.

Among them was Vivien, the girl of his dreams – beautiful eyes, hidden by the most awful Coke bottle eyewear – who became the catalyst for his eventual involvement in Galactic intrigue. That novel, Walter Stickle and the Galactic Rangers, nicely sets up this one.

Enter the Goldotti, a particularly ruthless race of parasites running rampant throughout the galaxy, latching onto whichever sentient civilization suits their purpose. Their latch point, the victim’s backbone, is only one of Walter’s problems…

Key people in his life are acting like extras from Invaders From Mars: too calm, too distracted, and too authoritarian. Some are downright nasty. Neighbors, the local corporate CEO, and his boss at SS all come down hard on his button-down lifestyle until once again, the Galactic Rangers descend from Space.

If only he remembered who they were. That part of his head was hijacked at the end of his previous encounter. Even his Coke-bottled beauty was no more than a romance from France.

Before long, fiery battles erupt on one planet and threaten a second, i.e. ours, and Walter, confused and gullible as always, is forced to save the day. And that’s where his backbone becomes less Goldotti and more, well, Stickle.

Some thoughts…

* At first, Walter’s changed little from his first adventure. He’s still timid and in need of an unnerving amount of order in his life. But the goodness in him shines a bit more as he smiles a hello at Mrs.Giamotti before buying bagels for his coworkers, or offers to play Kick the Can after work with next door neighbor kids, Jack & Jenny. He makes sure he has a daily 6:45 AM conversation with retired army sergeant Ralph Minton on his way out the door, and even counts 8th graders, Biff & Frank as his friends: he didn’t rat them out for toilet papering houses.

All this regularity makes the imminent Invaders-style disruption a little more disturbing and sinister. By the book’s second half, though, we’ve seen some progress in that Stickle backbone. While he’s not quite Clint Eastwood, he’s at least approaching Ben Stiller territory.

* As always, Enright works narrative in a down-to-Earth, yet clever manner…

“Walter ate some of his bowl of cereal standing at the kitchen window. The garbage can in the cabinet under the sink ate the rest.”

* The same goes for the rhythm of his dialogue. Here, Walter is steering friend [and alien] “Lenny” away from operating a motor vehicle…

“Okay, how about I drive?”

“You?”

“You can navigate.”

“You don’t even own a car, Walter.”

“I’m a good driver. I’ve never had an accident.”

“Because you don’t have a car, remember?”

“I’ve driven lots of times.”

“What? At an amusement park? Bumper cars don’t count.”

“I drive real cars.”

“I know your generation. You learned on a video game, didn’t you? What was it, that Car Simulator thing?”

Walter pulled out his wallet and showed Lenny his driver’s license. “See. You don’t get that from playing Grand Theft Auto.”

* Enright does Outer Space well, too. The action crashes and soars, Star Trek style, across two parasite infected planets, peaking, for me anyway, when Walter himself is captured…

“I’ve often marveled at how you humans enjoy picking your victims before eating them,” sneers the evil Commander Tague. “Have you ever stopped to think of the poor lobsters [in a seafood restaurant tank] spending their all too short lives waiting and watching, night after night, as people ogle over them, never knowing when someone will choose them and their painful end will come in a pot of boiling water?”

What happens next will stand the hairs up on the back of your neck.

As the plight of our hero and his cohorts spiraled downward, I kept cheering for them, but it didn’t help. Several dead heroes and an infected population of Earthlings left Walter with the fate of two planets hanging in the balance. Enright had painted himself into a corner. He’s done that in a number of his stories.

And then from somewhere, he pulled the threads neatly together into a satisfying resolution. He’s done that, too, in each of those other stories. It’s one of his strengths.

Here, though, there’s more. As the story winds down, someone is still missing, and something serious is still wrong. What happens on the last page made me want to read more.

How ‘bout it, Larry? Got another Stickle in your pocket?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It - Give me More Walter Stickle! 16 December 2014
By Pat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sequels are often disappointing, but not this one! I thoroughly enjoyed Walter Stickle's first adventure with the Gallactic Rangers, but I think I enjoyed the Goldotti of Deamus even more. So imaginative - so refreshing - so heart-warming. I absolutely loved this book, and I love Walter Stickle. Bring on the next installment in the series!
4.0 out of 5 stars Stickle, Galactic Hero...and really nice guy! 8 February 2017
By Truth - Published on Amazon.com

This book continues a fun science fiction romp through galactic heroism, love, and frustrating politics. Walter shows that being nice is important everywhere in the galaxy. Bad guys don't always win, and friendship and love rules the day. A great book that makes you want to buck the system and save the universe.
