Stellar exploration--and depredation--in the exciting first novel in the Solar Queen series from a "superb storyteller" (The New York Times).   In the future, venturing out into the stars is more than a way for humanity to chart the cosmos--it's big business. Every time a new planet is discovered, the highest bidder gets first dibs with exclusive property rights for a year. Anything they can find, they can keep.   The planet Limbo was considered a waste of rock to most, which is the only reason apprentice cargo master Dane Thorson and the rest of the crew of the Solar Queen could afford to bid on it. But they soon discover that Limbo is far from uninhabited, the Solar Queen is far from the first ship to explore it--and they can never leave . . .   With her many beloved series, including the Solar Queen novels, Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton remains "one of the most popular authors of our time" (Publishers Weekly). Sargasso of Space is the 1st book in the Solar Queen Series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.… (mere)

It was ok. Made me reread 'Catseye' and 'The Beast Master' which I have loved over many years. This seems a very slight book by comparison. It always gives me a surprise to remember Andre Norton is a woman as I always think of her as a male writer - probably because she doesn't have any women characters at all! Not something I noticed when I was a teenager. ( )

Great space opera and did not feel dated to me, despite the fact that it is 65 years old now.

The story is told from the perspective of a new cargo apprentice, traveling on his first Trade ship. I liked Dane and look forward to reading more about him and his shipmates. ( )

Picked this up mainly 'cause it's such a cool-looking old pulp paperback (1955). The contents are just about exactly what you'd expect from the packaging - it's definitely a 'boys'' adventure story in space... from back in the day when rockets were tall, pointy, and powered by jet fuel, and new planets were open to capitalist exploitation by bold and manly explorers....
Our Hero graduates from the Space Academy and is assigned to the Solar Queen, a Free Trader ship. The crew buys trading rights to a sight-unseen planet at public auction.
Will the planet be a worthless wasteland - or the site of valuable artifacts from long-dead civilisations? ( )

This book is very dear to me because it's one of the first sci-fi books that I read, and I remember how engrossing it was then. The book is well paced and engaging. Interesting that there are absolutely no female characters even though the author is a woman.

Very serviceable old-school space opera from the 1950s. Reads like a boys life adventure from an even earlier period. I breezed through it in 3 days and enjoyed it.

It has a very dated feel today in 2014. Not one female named role. The only mention of alien races have very xenophobic attitudes toward them.

If you are looking for a brief vacation from the complex sci-fi of today give Andre Norton a try. ( )
