Angry Young Spaceman is an engagingly offbeat story by Jim Monroe, as subversive a Canadian as you'll ever find. His coming of age character, Sam, had just gotten out of college in 2959 and fallen in with a bad crowd. Things look up, somewhat when he gets a job teaching English to the octopus like aliens on Octavia, or they would if Sam wasn't a classic case of no matter where you go, there you are...bad attitude and all.

From official release/information:

Product Description:

Sam Breen, earthling, is pretty much standard issue for a recent college graduate. He's got a bad attitude, a massive student loan, and his eye on a snappy jetpack. So he does what any graduate of the class of 2959 would do: He signs up to teach English as a foreign language. Sam ends up on the underwater planet of Octavia, populated by eight-armed beings that have a voracious appetite for English ... and a few other things, as Sam discovers. But at the spaceport, someone steals his Speak-O-Matic translator, he gets into a barfight, and things go downhill or underwater from there. Still, Sam learns more than he teaches: from Mr. Zik, a singer of melancholy songs; from a robot named 9/3; and from Jinya, whose undulating tentacles make Sam forget all about human appendages.
