Interior text

In the Far Distant Future...

Aeons in the future, a spaceship from Earth, mighty beyond all comprehension, is faced with the problem of locating a few inhabited planets lost in a wilderness of sun and star systems. The inhabitants of these planets know the ship is searching for them and refuse to reveal their location. But the captain of the Star Cluster is a very determined person, and so the almost impossible hunt begins.

It is very difficult to describe in words the tremendously imaginative sweep and drive of this super-thrilling science-fiction adventure. Those who have read other stories by A.E. Van Vogt will know what to expect in this, his latest and most compelling novel. Those who have not read him before have a treat in store for them that they will long remember.
