REVIEW: Bubbles in Space: Tropical Punch by S.C. Jensen

Bubbles in Space: Tropical Punch by S.C. Jensen is a cyberpunk detective novel that manages to somehow be both light hearted and entertaining while also dark as fuck. It’s really all about your attitude in the dystopian setting of HoloCity. A place where the vast majority of humans live in utter poverty, life is cheap, and death is free. It’s not quite grimdark but it’s not-not grimdark either, being a bit like Ciaphas Cain in the Warhammer 40K universe. The protagonist’s humorous and can-do attitude contrasts against an utterly crappy universe.
