Cargo Pilot Rosco Little just wanted to make his run and get paid; not run for his life. Just looking at the girl, he knew she would bring him no end of trouble. But having seen her, it was far too late. And the gods always require a sacrifice.
This is the first in a series of rollicking space adventures for Cargo Pilot Rosco Little.
