Link Denham had spent most of his adult life trying to avoid boredom, but sometimes there can be too much adventure for any man. One morning Link awoke, battling a fierce hangover, to find himself aboard a rickety olf spaceship, with a strange little man named Thistlethwaite.

First book publication. Mag serial and subsequent printings named World of the Uffts.
