Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover

Overnight, young Biron Farrill changed from a casual student preparing for graduation at the University of Earth into a fugitive fleeing from an unknown assassin. Someone had tried to kill him in his dormitory. And he learned that, many light-years away in the inky blackness of the Horsehead Nebula, his father had already been murdered.

The mystery took him deep into space where he found himself in a relentless struggle with the power-mad despots of Tyrann. From now on it was a case of death or freedom for the galaxy . . .

THE STARS LIKE DUST is an Isaac Asimov classic of galactic intrigue and adventure to rank alongside THE NAKED SUN and THE END OF ETERNITY.
