THEY WANTED THE STARS...
Fleeing a utopian Earth, searching for meaning, Jenorden and his friends take to the stars to save a helpless race from merciless telepathic aliens.
But when travelers from another galaxy appear, offering to answer any question, reveal any secret and end any conflict, are their motives sinister...
A huge hit when it was released in 1964, and one of the first science fiction novels to star a person of color, I Want the Stars is a hopeful tale of tomorrow, one that resonates today more than ever.
This edition includes a "making of" essay, a window into the world of an SF writer in the Silver Age of the genre.
This is a fascinating book, not just because Purdom knows how to put together a well-paced, character-driven story but because of how modern it feels...
