Laurence James was an original member of the Piccadilly Cowboys. In 1972 he wrote his first novel, Earth Lies Sleeping - a sci-fiction book introducing Simon Rack, inter-galatic hero. He has written under many psuedonyms including John J McLaglen and James W Marvin.
Intergalatic Federation hero Simon Rack returns in this second science fiction adventure. You want to keep the stars free? Then send for Simon Rack! The Alephians try to ignore him; then they try to bribe him and finally try to kill him. They should have done better because Rack is a hard man to kill.
First in the exciting Science Fiction series featuring Simon Rack.The Federation fleet is big enough for most missions. But for some it’s too big, like when a dictator’s throat needs cutting. Or a spy lost in a prison colony on Golot 4. Dirty Jobs. Violent jobs. Lonely jobs. That’s when they send for SIMON RACK. Plus a bonus short story.
