The Voyages of Ralf is a work of fiction in the humor and science fiction adventure sub-genres and was penned by author R. M. Kozan. This story features the first volume of the adventure titled The Arc of Purchaser. The work centers on titular character Ralf, who lives in a part of a galactic alliance spearheaded by Mars, and works as an intern at Space Corps. In this incredible new world that’s filled with danger, culture shocks, and new faux-pas to discover, we see Ralf head out on the adventure of a lifetime. What results is a humorous and eventful tale of personal discovery and growth.

Author R. M. Kozan has crafted an excellent work of science fiction which leans heavily to the lighter side of alien worlds and culture shock humor, and as a result, the piece is light and highly enjoyable. This doesn’t mean that the author skimps on worldbuilding, for there are plenty of new societal inventions amongst the Martians and the new world of the Since Reset age. I really enjoyed how Kozan plays with familiar concepts but gives them an alien twist to deliver those surprise laughs. Ralf himself is a great comic foil as a central protagonist, with plenty of capacity for fun, as dangerous and laugh-out-loud things happen to him. The dialogue was another particularly amusing feature, with zippy lines that really keep you smiling throughout. Overall, I would recommend The Voyages of Ralf for readers seeking an action-packed adventure with plenty of laughs along the way.
