“A great new galactic-adventure series! Morgan Chane, the Starwolf, battles pirates and hostile space-cruisers to find the secret of the dark nebula.” — cover
The stars whispered: die, Starwolf! die!
Morgan Chane was an Earthman by parentage, but he had been born on the pirate-world Varna, whose heavy gravity had developed strength and incredibly quick reflexes in him. When he was old enough, he joined the raider-ships that looted the starworlds, and fought side by side with the dreaded Starwolves of Varna.
But then there was a fight among them. Chane killed their leader, and the other Starwolves turned on him. He barely got away alive – wounded near death, his Starwolf pursuers following him across the galaxy.
And there was nowhere he could seek refuge, for no world would lift a hand to save one of the hated Starwolves.
