Legacy

by James H. Schmitz

The discovery of "Plasmoids", developed and used by an ancient and advanced galactic civilization, has the good guys scrambling for control while the bad guys attempt a series of nefarious plots. I agree with a previous review, in that a lot of info is withheld until late in the book. Still an entertaining read, however.

Lion Loose

by James H. Schmitz

A shipment of Hlats, fierce and intelligent animals with the ability to pass through solid matter and of great potential commercial value, attracts criminals to the luxury space resort known as The Star. Tough criminal of repute, "Bad News" Quillan, has his own agenda as mayhem erupts. A good space / pulp short novella.

The Star Hyacinths

by James H. Schmitz

Treachery and schemes abound on a salvage operation to a remote planet, with a vast fortune in precious gems at stake. It's a good short space-opera, plenty of action, and interesting characters - not the least of whom is the versatile and indomitable Miss Mines, mission pilot.
