News and Reviews

“The set-up at times is reminiscent of Men In Black, but while MIB played things for laughs, Intergalactic is more high-space adventure…for those who like space adventures with mystery, intrigue, and some scary beasties, this will be an engaging read.” – Booklist

“Bishop ramps things up, imbuing this romp with solid worldbuilding, a broad sense of adventure, and a sensitive emotional core. With gruesome alien battles, layered conflict, and a sprinkling of humor, this is sure to find an audience.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“Because I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found it captivating, Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc. receives a rating of four out of four stars. I enthusiastically recommend it to readers who enjoy adventure, romance, and space-travel novels that have lots of humor. I can’t wait to read the author’s next book.” – Online Book Club

“The result is a compelling, whimsical romp through the universe of intergalactic pest control. It’s an inviting read for those who enjoy their sci-fi stories of alien invasion and first contact spiced with the flavor of fun. Few sci-fi stories hold such humor, making Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc. a special attraction for libraries who seek examples of irony, satire, and action-packed displays of amusement.” – Midwest Book Review

“[A] madcap adventure of space bugs, advanced tech, and corporate greed… Bishop’s sci-fi debut is recommended for readers who think Larry Correia’s “Monster Hunter International” series should go intergalactic, those who enjoy stories featuring the people who get the dirty jobs done, and especially anyone who wishes that Martha Wells’s Murderbot would become a superhero.” – Library Journal

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ash Bishop’s Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc. [with] its incredible characters, terrific humor, and highly imaginative world-building. I appreciated how family bonds and caring for family remained a strong driving force throughout the novel…The tale twists and turns right to the conclusion. I thought the ending was terrific, and the suspense was unbearable! A very enjoyable sci-fi story, with remarkable characters and fantastic imagination!” –

“Loved it! This novel is lighthearted Space Opera with a strong but chaste romantic element, making it appropriate for young adults. However, there is enough action and serious conflict to make it appealing to adult Sci-Fi readers as well.” Reedsy Discovery

“Thus begins a story unlike any Earthling could imagine… There is planetary traveling, portals, humor, odd creatures, witty banter and a smidgeon of romance.  If you enjoy the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and need something similar, I highly recommend Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc. There is so much potential for more of this story, I am hoping for a series.” –

“Oh I very much enjoyed this one! The characters are so relatable, regardless of whether they’re human or extra-terrestrial, I found myself rooting for them all. Russ is our hero with a very big heart, Nina is a female lead with gumption, and Applebum is just full of surprises Delightful dialogue, great pacing, vibrant settings, and high stakes…this one I would highly recommend. Loved the literal laugh out loud moments too!” – Author Jordan H. Bartlett

“Have you ever needed a job so bad that you’ll take anything—even if it required an unpaid certification program that killed half the applicants? Intergalactic Exterminators, Inc is a fun, action-packed sci-fi adventure. The humor lies in the absurdity of the premise, and we get to encounter a range of unique and incredible alien species, some that need protection, others that are targets for extermination…The narrative voice is smooth and perfect for this whirlwind adventure. If you’re looking for sci-fi humor, this is a great find.” – Author V.J. Mikles
