HE WENT TO THE STARS AND BECAME MORE THAN A MAN - NOW HE MUST BATTLE INTERGALACTIC EVIL!From the Golden Age pulp sf writer, Stuart J. Byrne. In the far future, the trinary star system of Alpha Centauri is Mans new frontier and threshold to the galaxy. But the tri-planet dictatorship of Sol (Earth, Mars, Venus) triggers an interstellar revolution. The Star Man, Steve Germaine, becomes the catalyst: the Alpha uprisings, the mutinous star trip to Sol, capturing a prize of war, raiding the cosmium vaults of Martanium on Mars, riding a comet to Luna (our moon) and blasting the Empire Fleet, raising a second front on Venus (while enslaved), finding the lost mutant labs of the 23rd century Magicians (mutants), using their science to create a cosmium-powered inversion-drive star ship, then becoming lost in a negative universe and discovering the awesome Nebula Worlds, only to fall into a time trap, etc.What of the cosmic secret of the Quasar Crystals, of the Era Unspoken, the Star Warden guidance of the Lords of the Nebula?
Meet Si the human cyborg . . . Alphie, the batrachian mascot creature with a child mind and super I.Q. . . and great Karmax, the Minotaur wizard-creator of the Temonoids (one step beyond androids) with his destiny-warping super-cosmic quest. Who are the sacred ZRAAL, the oldest star race? WE are! Earth is merely a time-lost pocket colony of the ancient Zraal- Germaine is the mutant key to our newstellar emergence, aided by superhumans whose task is to prepare ALL worlds for the coming threat of the Kosmikons.
(This is a Unisol word for Cosmi-Khans, Dark Force hordes from Beyond.) Hence the Star Wardens secret communications via the Quasar Crystals, to those who are ready to understand.On the personal side, Star Mans perennial enemy is Vincent Cardwell, nefarious empire builder.. The mysterious woman between them is the beautiful mutant, Anne Cardwell, who bears a mutant son.
Actually there are twins, one of whom is a negative personality, kidnaped by Cardwell and groomed for becoming Sols first emperor. The indestructible Emperor becomes a nemesis to both Cardwell AND Germaine. Through a stolen Quasar Crystal, he contacts alien agencies of the dreaded Kosmikons.The Star Man series is never-ending in its wide-ranging expansions and thought-variant scope. Alien worlds and civilizations, negative and alternate-time universes, cosmic purposes, cosmic threats .
