Scavenger Hunt by Stephen Goldin--an interstellar romp

Do you miss the days when science fiction books were fun? When the universe was bright and shiny and new, before the technology became grubby and the outlook became cynical?

That's what Scavenger Hunt is all about. Let your Sense of Wonder roam between the stars in a spaceship that looks like a spaceship, and where adventure is the name of the game.

In the distant future, the idle rich of galactic Society have nothing better to do than construct elaborate Games for themselves to play--and the greatest Game of all is the Scavenger Hunt. Visit different worlds, pick up hard-to-get items that can't simply be bought, and have a fine time. A clever way to pass empty moments.

Tyla deVrie and her twin brother, Bred, follow the family tradition of entering the Scavenger Hunt. But little do they realize as they hop from planet to planet aboard Bred's decadent space yacht that the Scavenger Hunt is far more than a game; it will irrevocably change their lives. That is, if it doesn't end them first.

When this book was first published in 1976, the original publisher, Laser Books, thought it was too long, and demanded that it be split into two parts and published as totally independent books: Scavenger Hunt and Finish Line. I was never completely happy with the result, and vowed that someday the book would be put back together again.

Decades later, my dream was realized, and Scavenger Hunt is now available in a single-volume edition in both paperback and multiple ebook formats. I invite you to come along on a fabulous journey through the galaxy, meet some intriguing characters, and have a helluva lot of fun.

I read the first book waaaay back in 1979. The school library had a tattered, dog eared copy. I never read the second book.

Thanks Stephen, I will grab this as soon as I can.

It's the same one. Of course, everyone needs a paperback copy too, right? <g>

New lower ebook price, only $4.99. The new price is immediately available at Smashwords, Apple, and Amazon; it should slowly trickle down to other retailers eventually. This is a great opportunity to enjoy this sexy space opera adventure.
