Summary
Delany's classic work of science fiction provides a portrait and parallels the intergalactic adventures of Mouse, an itinerant minstrel, and the archetypal figure Captain Lorq Von Ray
Amazon.com description: Product Description: [Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

Given that the suns of Draco stretch almost sixteen light years from end to end, it stands to reason that the cost of transportation is the most important factor driving the thirty-second century. And since Illyrion is the element most needed for space travel, Lorq von Ray is plenty willing to fly through the core of a recently imploded sun in order to obtain seven tons of it. The potential for profit is so great that Lorq has little difficulty cobbling together an alluring crew, including a gypsy musician and a moon-obsessed scholar. What the crew doesn't know is that Lorq's quest is actually fueled by a private revenge so consuming that he'll stop at nothing to achieve it.
