Beast Master's Planet

by Andre Norton
Release date: 2005
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

The 50th anniversary omnibus edition of a seminal science fiction series

When first published in 1959, The Beast Master was a new kind of science fiction adventure, featuring a Navajo protagonist, Hosteen Storm, a soldier with a unique team — animals with whom he has a telepathic mind-link. The time is the future, when Earth has been devastated by interstellar war with the alien Xik.

Storm is now on the planet Arzor. Once the home of an ancient, long-dead alien civilization, it is inhabited by human colonists and the indigenous Norbies. Storm and the other Arzorites must fight the Xik, who are intent on destroying all life but their own.

With rousing action and Norton’s unique ability to evoke the strangeness and mystery of ancient alien civilizations, The Beast Master and its sequel, Lord of Thunder, remain fresh and enthralling, a half-century after their debut.
