Description

Gully Foyle, Mechanic's Mate 3rd Class.

EDUCATION: None.

SKILLS: None.

MERITS: None.

RECOMMENDATIONS: None.

That's the official verdict on Gully Foyle, unskilled space crewman.

But right now he is the only survivor on his drifting, wrecked spaceship and when another space vessel, the Vorga, ignores his distress flares and sails by, Gully becomes obsessed with revenge. He endures 170 days alone in deep space before finding refuge on the Sargasso Asteroid and returning to Earth to track down the crew and owners of the Vorga. But, as he works out his murderous grudge, Gully Foyle also uncovers a secret of momentous proportions...

About the Author

Alfred Bester (1913-87) was born in New York and educated at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia. He was a scriptwriter and journalist by profession but he set the science fiction world alight in the 1950s with THE DEMOLISHED MAN, THE STARS MY DESINTATION and his extraordinary short stories.
