by Michael D. Cooper


The second book in the Starman Series finds the Starmen hot on the trail of an escaping pirate named Lurton Zimbardo. Starlight Enterprise discovered that the pirates had a secret base in the Asteroid Belt -- an ancient base, built by aliens millennia before but abandoned and hidden in the Asteroid Belt for some unknown reason. Starlight Enterprise sent the three Starmen on a quick mission to locate the hidden base, but the mission became highly complex when Zimbardo showed himself time and again one step ahead of the forces of light.

Zimbardo had discovered that his asteroid base was protected by a shield that hid it from radar, making it all but impossible to detect. His plan for revenge was simple: he simply activated the amazing atomic drive of the asteroid and sent the rock heading on a collision course with Earth at a speed of 300,000 mph. Zimbardo's ultimatum to Earth was simple: surrender, or your planet will become pulverized by an invisible, unstoppable rock!

 Join the Starmen David Foster, Mark Seaton and Joe Taylor as they work with odd characters and limited resources to to escape Zimbardo's clutches and divert the asteroid before it causes an unimaginable catastrophe. Just when the Starmen think that all is well they will discover that Zimbardo has one more card to play...


This book, the second in the series, is 228 pages long and contains nearly 20% more words than the first book. The extra length has enabled us to explore our story in more detail, and people who have read the book think it's even better than the first book. Each copy:

  • is hardcover
  • is a numbered first edition (only 550 copies were printed)
  • has color endpapers
  • has a frontispiece
  • has a full-color wrap dustjacket
  • and has includes a unique introduction written by Paul Greene (the son of the person who wrote the Dig Allen series, which inspired the Starman).

Due to time constraints, we were unable to put any illustrations in this book except for the frontispiece.
