Two incandescent novels of journey and battle across the stars set in David Drakeâs best-selling Hammerâs Slammers universe together for the first time in one mega-volume. In Cross the Stars, Captain Don Slade has resigned from active duty with the Slammers and headed home for what he hopes will be peacefulÂ retirement with his son and the woman he loves. But Sladeâs road to his homeworld lies through a jungle of planets in the wildest and toughest quadrant of the galaxy. Slade has going for him the loyalty of a contingent of Slammers who have sworn to see him home. Most of all, he still possesses the wits and wily tactical ability that made him a legend among the Slammers in the first place. Heâs going to need all of it, for even if he makes it through all dangers, heâll discover Tethys is not exactly ready to welcome him home with open arms. The journey home is an Odyssey of epic proportions and Don Slade is just the Ulysses to undertake it.Â
In Voyage, Ned Slade has a heck of a name to live up to:Â that of his uncle Captain Don âMad Dogâ Slade of the legendary mercenary brigade, Hammerâs Slammers. But Nedâs life takes a turn to adventure when he crews for Lissea Doorman, a trade-ship captain who is sent by her conniving guild masters on what is supposed to be a suicide run. The crew of the good ship Swift is after an ancient alien artifact that could revolutionize star travel. The journey is long, and along the way Ned must first survive in a hard-knock universe full of forcesâsome very large and very-much armed-to-the-hiltâthat would like nothing more than to blow him and the crew of the Swift to smithereens. And if he manages to pull through and, more importantly, if he manages to grow up and come of age as a man in the process, he may yet become the warrior and leader of warriors that is his inheritance. Jason and the Argonauts meets gritty science fiction adventure in what many argue is one of best-seller David Drakeâs greatest and most compelling works.
