I got this book at it's bargain price and it was a decent read. It was short, quick and easy. While I found it fairly enjoyable, the characters were too typical and I hardly found the plot interesting. However, I'm just a young college student, too young to have grown up with the old school sci fi that these authors were clearly inspired by. You can only love this one if you understand where they're coming from.

Get this book. Read this book. Have much enjoyment. This book pay extreme tribute to the days of space opera, Buck Rogers, Space Hawk 'Hawk Carse', Saturday matinee serials and good old fashioned fun. From the 'antiqued' dust jacket to the space opera cliches, this volume pack alot of adventure. Next adventure,please. The authors have done a great job of transporting me back to my days of running home from school to catch the latest episode of 'Rocky Jones, Space Ranger'. And to think...I almost didn't buy the book. Now if only Corsaire could learn to shoot when he needs to....

He invites the dirty dozen, who top the most wanted list to his auction. The highest bidder gets to do what he wants to Corsaire Vulture leans towards making spunky Cali his toy. On Verlinap, the still free and still wanted Gil helps Cali's sons by picking pockets while they fix rockets his goal is to regain his body parts hocked to his bookie whom he lost an arm and a leg and more to before the man sells them at auction their goal is to rescue mom no one¿s goal is to save Corsaire as he can rot in Purgatory as far as the kids and the crooks care.---------------- Saluting the Buck Rogers 1950s space pulp fiction thrillers, SPACE VULTURE is an entertaining throwback tale. The story line is a nostalgic amusement to a pre Star wars era as the heroes seem to jump from one adventure into another. Although the plot is razor thin, fans will enjoy this fun space opera that takes readers back in time.--------------- Harriet Klausner
