Adventure in Space In 1955, Norton introduced Dane Thorson, an apprentice cargo-master who signed on with the independent cargo ship Solar Queen looking for a career in off-world trade. Here are the first two star-spanning tales of Dane Thorson and the Solar Queen. In Sargasso of Space, the free-traders of the Solar Queen win exclusive rights to all tradable goods discovered on the planet Limbo. The crew arrives to find the planet's surface charred, signs of life sparse. Worse yet, a strange pulse emanating from the planet itself may keep the Queen from lifting off. The traders find a secret valley with life, but others may still lurk in rocky caves below. The traders must solve the mysteries of Limbo if they hope to escape the planet, let alone come away with some saleable goods. In Plague Ship, the Queen travels to Sargol, homeworld to a race of sentient felines, the Salariki. Sargol promises a wealth of exquisite gems to trade-if the crew can overcome the natives' mistrust. But their troubles have only just begun. When a mysterious soon overtakes all the crew except the four youngest, the Galactic Patrol labels the Queen plagued and orders it to be destroyed on sight. The apprentices discover alien beings aboard the Queen, and realize the illness may be connected to the aliens. With every ship in the galaxy searching for them, the crew has one chance to save the Solar Queen: broadcast their plight throughout the galaxy. But the one station able to do this is on Earth, at Patrol headquarters, which ordered the Solar Queen's destruction!… (mere)

An omnibus edition of Andre Norton's first two stories about the Sola Queen and, particularly, Dane Thorson, as the ship and its crew try to survive as a Free Traders in a Universe coming ever more under the control of the big interstellar trading houses. In the first of these tales, 'Sargasso of Space', Dane finds himself assigned to the Free Trade vessel Solar Queen rather than a ship belonging to one of the transtellar shipping lines. Not sure about his luck in joining this crew, Dane soon finds a new family amongst the crew, especially the two other apprentices in the crew. When a Scout cruiser has to auction off a number of new trade routes, the Queen's crew throw in their pay in order to bid on the forbiddingly named Limbo. When they go to this planet to see what they have bought the rights to, they find a world suffering from aw Burn Off, an ancient war that had reduced most of the planet to slag. As they continue their explorations, though, they find that melted rock is not all the ancients had left behind.

In 'Plague Ship' the Queen's crew had managed to upgrade their route to the planet of Sargol where rare and eagerly sought after gems can be traded for from the felinoid natives but the previous owner of the trade rights had died and not left any notes on what the natives wanted in exchange. It's Dane, breaking trade protocol, who also breaks this impasse even at the risk of endangering the natives. But as the ship made its return voyage to Terra, a greater danger is revealed as something strikes down the crew one by one...

These stories were originally written in the fifties and the attitudes of that decade do show through, but the story telling itself has a sense of wonder that much modern science fiction has lost ( )

The lanky, very young man in the ill-fitting Trader's tunic tried to stretch the cramp out of his long legs.
Dane Thorson, Cargo-master-apprentice of the Solar Queen, Galactic Free Trader spacer, Terra registry, stood in the middle of the ship's cramped bather while Rip Shannon, assistant Astrogator and his senior in the service of Trade by some four years, applied gobs of highly scented paste to the skin between Dane's rather prominent shoulder blades.

This is an omnibus of the first two Solar Queen novels, and contains SARGASSO OF SPACE and PLAGUE SHIP. It should not be combined with either individual book, nor with any of the later books in the series (which in fact do not overlap the omnibus in content).
