STAR BEAST

NEL paperback, July 1978. Illustration: Joe Petagno.

"When John Thomas Stuart VIII abducted the young star beast from its native planet he knew he was taking a risk. But three generations later the creature was still with the Stuarts, as a long-established family pet. Until, one afternoon, it broke loose... 
The order was out to destroy 'Lummox'. And then its fellow creatures arrived to retrieve it. More powerful and highly developed than any star race previously encountered by Man, the Hroshii threaten Earth with interplanetary war. By the star beast and its 'master', John Thomas Stuart XI, have disappeared."
