This is the follow-up to "Galaxy's Edge". Jaxie Cade continues his hunt for the fabled Phantom Planet, in the hi-tech world of Lannamurand its moons. Accompanied by combat-ace, Raishe, Cade is just one jump ahead of his pursuers, the wrinkly alien Occians.
Douglas Arthur Hill (1935–2007) was a Canadian science fiction author, editor and reviewer.
He is probably best known for his Galactic Warlord (The Last Legionary) quartet of novels, supposedly produced as the result of a challenge by a publisher to Hill's complaints about the lack of good science fiction for younger readers.
