Overview

Three Against The Stars! A sky pirate armed with superior weapons of his own invention... First contact with an alien race dangerous enough to threaten the safety of two planets... The arrival of an unseen dark sun whose attendant marauders aimed at the very end of civilization in this Solar System... These were the three challenges that tested the skill and minds of the brilliant team of scientist-astronauts Arcot, Wade, and Morey. Their initial adventures are a classic of science fiction which first brought the name of their author, John W. Campbell, Jr., into prominence as a master of the inventive imagination--long before he became the editor of <I>Astounding/Analog</I> and changed the field of science fiction forever!

Cloudedpaw padded in and sniffed the air. She smelled rabbit! She followed the trail until the rabbit came into view. She stalked it until she was as close as she dared. Then she sprang and sank her teeth into its neck. It died immediately. Cloudedpaw carried it back to Everdawn.

Scifi is often dated. The cutting edge speculation of yester-year rarely holds up to modern developments. In Black Star, the airplanes of the 23rd century (thats still 200 years from today) are driven by propellers, there is no concept of electronics, and the authors theory about the formation of planets seems almost silly. However, once you get past those sorts of things, there is a lot of interesting ideas in there, ones I haven't read in other scifi stories. Which, when you consider it was written in 1930, is remarkable. So if you can cut him some slack for not being prescient, you're in for an interesting fun read.
