This book is a collection of Science Fiction adventures that have previously appeared in Raygun Revival and Spacewestern Magazines. The first is about a miner on a desert planet who risks his life to rescue a woman that he really wishes he hadn't. In the second, romance is in the air when antagonistic races join in a mission to save a peaceful planetary population from immanent destruction. In the third, a comedic and cataclysmically violent space captain is swept into the intrigues of a portside ‘Shady Lady'. The fourth story flashes out into deep space where pirates force a young slave to salvage a drifting warship that isn't as dead as it seems. The fifth is a desperate survival story of a small group rescued by a stoic champion. ‘No good deed goes un-punished' is tested in the sixth story when a mining ship wakens the inhabitant of an alien cryo-pod. Ancient and modern ways of life collide during an alien invasion in the seventh tale.
