Haldeman, Joe. New York: Bantam Books (1977). First Edition. Paperback. 151 pp. A clean, attractive copy. “Never before had the Enterprise been betrayed by its own technology. Never before had their systems, instruments and weapons failed to respond. And never before had Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest of the crew faced a total breakdown of science and sanity … until they stumbled on the mysterious world that couldn’t exist … A world orbited by a black hole and ruled by chaos – where man was a helpless plaything for a race of beings more powerful than the laws of the universe.” Book: Very Good.
