After a galaxy-wide war had left the planetary federation in ruins, every surviving civilized world was on its own. And that was a perfect setup for the marauders from the far-out rim. Trask was one of these dreaded Space Vikings, a renegade spaceman with a crew and a ship that struck terror to a thousand worlds. But Trask had a personal interest in scourging the stars: he wanted to draw upon himself the ire of a certain enemy, another planet-wrecker with a yen for galactic empire building.

H. Beam Piper was one of science fiction's most enigmatic writers. In 1946 Piper appeared seemingly from out of nowhere, already at the top of his form. He published a number of memorable short stories and successfully made the turn to major novelist. Even those who counted Piper among their friends learned very little about the man (or his previous life as a railroad yard bull in Altoona, Pennsylvania) before he committed suicide in November 1964.
