"Merchanter's Luck"--His name was Sandor and he was the owner and entire crew of a tramp star-freighter that flew the Union planets under false papers and fake names. Her name was Allison and she was a proud but junior member of the powerful family whose mighty starship, Dublin Again, was the true queen of the spaceways. They met at Viking Station, she seeking a night's dalliance, he desperately in search of a spacer assistant. Their fateful meeting was to lead to a record-breaking race to Pell Station, thereby catching the calculating eye of the grim commander of the Alliance battlecraft Norway, and a terrifying showdown at a deadly destination off the cosmic charts. "Forty Thousand In Gehenna"--When forty thousand human colonists are abandoned for political reasons on a planet called Gehenna, and re-supply ships fail to arrive, collapse seems imminent. Yet over the next two centuries, the descendants of the original colonists survive despite all odds by entering a partnership with the planet's native intelligence--the lizard-like, burrowing calibans.

Our customer reviews

"Yes, it's an omnibus volume, a reedition of two classic SF novels set in Cherryh's Alliance/Union universe. And a good thing too! The old paperbacks are often difficult to find, or not in good condition, and this one offers two great novels for a very reasonable price."show more
