One ordinary man, one extraordinary adventure...

Universal Encyclopedia (713th edition, page 32,603 - Galactic History)
On Sidereal 1031.42, as time came to be measured, our galaxy's five central worlds formed the first Congress of Planets. Headquartered in the city of Jandu on the planet Argon, they were tasked with governing relations between the known worlds.

Walter Stickle knows all about this.

(entry continued...)
On that date, Congress enacted the Articles, a comprehensive system of laws regulating trade, civil, and interplanetary matters. These Articles have existed for over a thousand sidereals.

And though Walter could recite many of these Articles from memory, he feels no particular compunction to obey any of them. 

(entry continued...)
To uphold these laws, the First Congress of Planets formed the Galactic Rangers, guardians of peace in the galaxy. (See related entry, page 45,984 - Galactic Rangers)

Walter could also tell you that, for over a thousand sidereals, the Galactic Rangers have faithfully carried out their mission to maintain order throughout the known systems. Their deeds are legendary and their devotion to duty and the law unshakable. He knows this because it's his favorite comic strip. It's science fiction. It isn't real.

Universal Encyclopedia (713th edition, page 158,129 - Classified Mission Logs) Location - Beta Sector, Sol System, Third Planet  Entry date - Sidereal 2153.65  Scout Ship - Iota Mission - Planetary Survey Disposition - Unknown Report - Redacted

Or is it?

Walter Stickle's story begins with an ordinary man, a pair of mismatched socks, a woman with the ugliest glasses on Earth, and a comic strip. When a series of unusual events blurs the line between the normal and the extraordinary, between the real and the unreal, and between science fiction and science fact, it ends with the adventure of a lifetime. 

And don't miss the exciting sequel, Walter Stickle and the Goldotti of Deamus, now available on Amazon!

Product Description:

From the best-selling author of Four Years from Home and 2013 Independent Publishers Book Award Bronze Medalist for A Cape May Diamond...
 
Long ago, the five central worlds in the galaxy, led by the planet Argon, formed the first Congress of Planets on Sidereal 1031.42, as time came to be measured. On that occasion, they enacted the Articles, a comprehensive system of laws to regulate trade, civil, and interplanetary matters, and to uphold these laws, they formed the Galactic Rangers, the guardians of peace in the galaxy. For over a thousand sidereals, the Galactic Rangers have faithfully carried out their mission and maintained order throughout the known systems. Their deeds are legendary, their devotion to duty and the law unshakable.
 
Now, an evil that threatens to destroy the very fabric of civilization is rising like a black tide in the far reaches of the galaxy. A hideous creature from a dark and lifeless world, ruthless and cruel, and bent on nothing short of the destruction of all life is gathering its forces.
 
The Galactic Rangers are dispatched to deal with this threat. Carrying enough firepower to destroy a small moon, the most sophisticated technology in the fleet, and a small army in cryo-stasis, their destination is a small backwater world the inhabitants call Earth, the home of one Walter Stickle, an ordinary man who has long ago given up any dream of an extraordinary life.
 
Walter Stickle and the Galactic Rangers is the story of a man whose life is forever changed by a pair of mismatched socks, a woman with the ugliest glasses on Earth, and a comic strip.
