The Fourth Empire: This one could have been sub-titled “Hunter Invades the Galaxy.” Essentially the good guys put together a fleet of ships on the Home Planets and invade the Fourth Empire at its weakest point. They are in search of a long-lost cache of mind rings, hoping that the information within will reveal secrets of what makes the evil Fourth Empire tick.
There are battles galore as Hunter outwits one of the Galaxy’s best space commanders, stealing some super-fast enemy Starcrashers and making a last- second escape to . . . well, Heaven. Evidence of my Catholic school upbringing starts to rare its ugly head here.
