M-151 THE LAST PLANET Good
The Last Planet
By Andre Norton
From the author's Prologue:
"There is an old legend concerning a Roman Emperor, who, to show his power, singled out the Tribune of a loyal legion and commanded that he march his men across Asia to the end of the world. And so a thousand men
vanished into the hinterland of the largest continent . . .
In 8054 A.D. history repeated itself, as it always does. The First Galactic Empire was breaking up . . . It was a time when only the ruthless could flourish.
A wannabe dictator usurped the Roman idea as his own, and commanded a fleet of ships representing the last authority of the Empire to up-ship for unknown sectors of the starfield. True to their trust, they went, never to be heard from again. This is the story of one of those ships, Starfire, Vegan registry . . .
Originally a Harcourt, Brace hardcover, then reprinted as half of the great Double D-96. This, I believe, is Ace's fourth printing, still in the"small" paperback format, with the original cover painting (albeit shrunken).
Cover is clean, with a diagonal crinkle at the top. Heavy wear to lower left corner. Pages are white! Binding is tight, slightly canted.
