Publishers Weekly: "Fans of old-fashioned SF will love this fast-paced, chaotic, and good-natured adventure full of semi-farcical humor and pleasantly believable aliens." Conroy has left Earth far behind and taken his hypnosis act beyond Human Space. It should be show business as usual, except for the energy being the size of a hundred suns that wants to study him, a plot ...more

A first rate romp

This a light airy entertainment. A whole delightful universe with diverse aliens. It reminds me is Shakespeare's comedies. The hero, a talented rogue with a really neat pet overcomes impossible odds, earns the eternal hatred of two species, a spaceship and gets closer to the girl.
