Infinite Welcome

Infinity Welcomes Careful Drivers
(Red Dwarf #1)
by Grant Naylor (1992)

Dave Lister joins the space corps and finds himself aboard Red Dwarf, a spaceship as big as a small city.

So this is the first book in the series. And it’s just the script of Red Dwarf, from the beginning but with extra bits. After a while it becomes predictable and not that funny. Oh well, there is always the TV show.
