D-299 Star Born/Planet For Texans FAIR
A Planet For Texans
By H. Beam Piper & John J. McGuire
The name of the planet was New Texas. The byword of its people was freedom. As surely as their Lone Star ancestors had fought for independence, so the citizens of this maverick planet fought against the protective embrace of the Solar League.
For Stephen Silk, ambassador to New Texas, the job was twofold. Getting the pistol-packing populace to admit they needed anyone's protection would have been a tough task in itself. But add to it the fact that an attack by the canine-like aliens, the z'Srauff, seemed inevitable.
And to really confound the picture, some people, human or otherwise, seemed determined to remove one Stephen Silk from the land of the living!
By Andre Norton
Return to the planet Astra, three centuries after the heroic flight described in The Stars Are Ours! The Terrans have multiplied and prospered, formed alliances with the Mermen, and have not been bothered at all by the inhuman fiends who once ruled their world.
Then come twin upheavals. The Inhumans are coming back, with a vengeance, considering both humans and Mermen as little more than animals; and Astra is rediscovered by a starship from Earth. Do the Astrans face two enemies, or has civilization returned to Earth, making these newcomers into desperately-needed allies?
