Back cover text

Terror from Space

The pirates of Boskone raided at will, menacing the whole structure of interstellar civilization. Masterminded by a super-scientist, their fleets outgunned even the mighty space cruisers of the Galactic Patrol.

When Kim Kinnison of the Patrol found the secret Boskonian base, it was impregnable to attack — from outside. One man might penetrate its defenses — if he wanted to take on million-to-one odds!

Kinnison took them — with the future of the civilized Universe riding on his shoulders!

Interior text


The pirate cruiser locked onto its quarry, and a space-armored horde swarmed through the open ports — expecting to be met by their confederates on board the captured freighter.

But a blast of pure force met them — Kinnison and the Patrolmen were waiting, and in seconds the airlock was a shambles.

The surviving pirates broke and ran — but there was no place to hide...

Kinnison smiled grimly. This was only a pinprick to the power of the Boskonian pirates — but it would sting them enough so that the patrol and Kinnison himself could count on all the action they could handle — and soon!
