The space-faring Yherajk have come to Earth to meet us and to begin humanity's first interstellar friendship. There's just one problem: They're hideously ugly and they smell like rotting fish. So getting humanity's trust is a challenge. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal. Enter Thomas Stein, who knows something about closing deals. He's one of Hollywood's hottest young agents. But although Stein may have just concluded the biggest deal of his career, it's quite another thing to negotiate for an entire alien race. To earn his percentage this time, he's going to need all the smarts, skills, and wits he can muster.
"Narrator Wil Wheaton animates the slapstick text with a tone that is appropriate for the story of a young Tinsel Town agent whose other clients are either equally deranged or aren't making him much money." (AudioFile)

Not just Science Fiction
Yes. It's ridiculous, at the beginning, but give Scalzi a little bit of faith, and he makes it work.
As always with Scalzi, all the pieces fit together perfectly.
Wesley Crusher -- I mean Wil Wheaton -- always does a fantastic job. He's a pro!
What kind of question is that?
It's no parody, and it's also not the overt silliness of The Hitchhiker's Guide, but it is not serious science fiction. It's fun science fiction.
