Synopsis

The Rim of Space is the first of A. Bertram Chandler's series featuring the "Rimrunners", who patrol the outer edge of the galaxy. The hero, Dereck Calver, joins the Rimrunners abroad the aptly named spaceship, The Forlorn Bitch, in an early attempt to escape the horrors of his past life.Here he meets the fated but beautiful Calamity Jane who brings disaster to Calver and his crew. Traveling through the darkness and loneliness to the planets, Tharn and Groller, the crew encounter hostility, espionage, space ghosts and storms, which test their comradeship to the limit. Calver thought he had nothing left to lose but realized too late that "on the Rim, negation is too close to the living." This thrilling nautical adventure in outer space combines all the elements that have earned Bertram Chandler the reputation as "the C.S. Forester of space fiction.”
