Andre Reading Club--Uncharted Stars
#1
After getting revved up by The Zero Stone one goes full speed ahead with Uncharted Stars! These further adventures of Murdoc Jern and Eet take off where Zero Stone left off. The Thieves Guild still wants them and the Patrol wants to use them as bait to catch a guild Veep. They find a drug-addicted blackballed pilot and take off to earn money to finance a search for the source of the Zero stones. Many obsticals stand in the way not the least that they have bee posted as "unreliable-do not deal with" by either the Guild or the Patrol.
They overhear a plot by Jacks ti raid an archaeological dig led by a Zacathan. The take off to warn the Zacathan's party about the Jacks but arrive too late. The Jacks have looted the dig and left the badly wounded Zacathan to die. They rescue the archaeologist and go after the loot from the dig. Unfortunately the loot is on Waystar, the legendary hidden base for the Guild. After many hair-raising incidents, they finally take off for an unknown planet in an uncharted section of the galaxy. Is their ancient star chart acurate enough? What happens if they are? And will Murdoc and Eet ever be the same again? These two books are a pair of Andre's finest.
Also as a treat these books also mention many planets and species from her earlier novels. I remember her mentioning Warlock,Arzor,Limbo and Sargol to name a few planets along with Wyverns and Zacathans and her space opera staples such as the Patrol, The Thieves Guild,and the game of Stars and Comets. If one wants to go slower, I wonder how many shout outs to her other works are in there?:book: Later Kind Folks--Paul



Next we go back to our favorite Free Trade the Solar Queen in Postmarked The Stars , followed by Dread Companion
Frontiers of any type, physical or mental are but a challenge to our breed. Nothing can stop th questing of man, not even man. If we will it, not only the wonders of space, but the very stars are ours
