D-99 The Galactic Breed
Conquest Of The Space Sea GOOD+
The Galactic Breed
(The Starmen; Starmen of Llyrdis)
By Leigh Brackett
Imagine if you can: myriad intelligent races living in various nearby solar systems, some of them human. Faster-than-light travel is possible, but human bodies cannot tolerate the acceleration needed to reach supralight speeds. One race mutates, and the new bodies CAN withstand the terrible pressures; thus those people hold a total monopoly on starflight and interstellar commerce. (And the United States Department Of Injustice couldn't do a thing about it, even if they were aware of it!). Enter an Earthman, with enough starman ancestry to fly their ships, and enough intransigence to refuse to tolerate the monopolyâ¦.
Originally published by Gnome Press (as The Starmen), with a slightly different first chapter.
