Publisher's Summary

He’s a Vietnam vet, with a new lease on life. To fight an out-of-this-world invasion, he’ll need a little help from his friends...

Albert Jenkins never cared much for bureaucrats and politicians. So, when the Galactic Congress refuses to act on the illegal invasion of Earth by parasitic aliens, he does what any self-respecting vet would do - he steals a spaceship. But when AJ and a snarky pop culture-loving alien companion are pursued by space cops, he does the only rational thing he can come up with. He strategically crash-lands on a junkyard moon.

When he finally make it back home with what he hopes is a cure for the occupying parasites, he discovers the situation is worse than expected. The microscopic invaders have redoubled their efforts to strip Earth of critical resources, yet are undiscovered by humanity.

Knowing that time is in short supply, AJ calls on his network of crusty yet elite buddies from 'Nam. Fortunately, it does not take much convincing to get these aging patriots to saddle up one more time to kick some alien ass. With youth restored, this elite squad of old vets will pit themselves against an unseen enemy. The question is - can they put an end to this global invasion, once and for all?

Old Dogs, Older Tricks is the second book in the wild Junkyard Pirate space opera series. If you like sarcastic heroes, hilarious extraterrestrial sidekicks, and ragtag military units, then you’ll love Jamie McFarlane’s epic adventure.

is he a soldier or a marine?

love the story, and the author, I've enjoyed most of his books but as a vet I wish he'd pick which service aj fought with at area 51 he was a marine and was 2 different mos in the army, don't care what he can do just be one, or I guess we can have multiple tours changing branches whatever

Great series

Worth every penny every time. Always stories that truly defines what makes original SciFi adventure tales. I always can’t wait for Jamie McFarlane and Mikael Naramores next audiobook to be released. Always finish listening and reading the first day I can download. With around 20 audiobooks they have worked together on. They make a Solid team as writer and narrator mastering there crafts. Thank you.

Utter drivel

The first book was decent but was seemingly written for young adults or kids. This book was complete crap. Save your money

Had potential

I don't know how to say here except that this book hd so much potential, then fell flat on its metaphorical face.
You could remove 40% of the childish dialog and not change a thing. Just don't want to waste time on an actual review.

good fun book
I enjoyed it
8 words remaining
why can't a review be short and to the point?
cool new slant on an old plot without the horror of the old.

My favorite series so far of any book I've read

I truly enjoyed the second book more than the first. I hope this is a long-running series as I move on to book three.

New(ish) Sci-Fi written for boomers..?

I can't quite figure this series out yet. It has the feel of modern(ish) Sci-Fi with modern(ish) ideas, minimal handwaving, diversity, high (sometimes over-the-top) levels of pacifism, etc.. but also never SsTFU about 'Nam, using "good, ol' fashioned way" of doing things that just don't make sense in the modern world, etc.

The plot isn't terrible, though, and it's at better than filler-grade, if just barely at times.
