THOUSANDSTAR

Granada paperback, 1984. Cover illustration by Tim White.

"A TREACHEROUS SPACE RACE FOR THE LEGACY OF THE ANCIENTS 
For Heem of Highfalls - an outlawed Hydr0 - and Jessica of Capella - a Solarian impostor, the new competition is a matter of life and death. 
The target planet is a wilderness world - Eccentric. The objective of the competition is an Ancient site. And the site is believed to be in operable condition. 
That means that the competition will be murderously stiff. It will be a race against time, enemy aliens and black holes. 
And for Heem and Jessica - linked together in the most intimate way possible - the contest is very simple: they can win. 
Or they can die... 
Thousandstar takes Piers Anthony's marvellously inventive Cluster series exploding further across the bounds of space and time."
