Tor 1528 A FIRE UPON THE DEEP Mint
A Fire Upon The Deep
By Vernor Vinge
Cover by Boris Vallejo
A massive star-spanning saga with evil gods, interstellar conflicts, and manipulative aliens. It begins with a pair of innocent human children. Fleeing a menace of galactic proportions, a spaceship crashes on an unfamiliar world. The two young survivors are left to the "tender" mercies of a medieval, lupine race.
Responding to the crippled ship's distress signal, a rescue mission races to the wolves' planet, not somuch to save the children, but to retrieve the weaponthe ship was carrying, a weapon the human race desperately needs to prevent the universe from being forever changed!
First paperback printing, 1993. This is a clean, slick, unopened collection copy! The only flaw is that, due to Tom Doherty's parsimonious publishing proactices, the pages are browning.
