Flinx Transcendent

Alan Dean Foster
Authors:

Flinx is the only one with any chance of stopping the evil colossus barrelling in to destroy the Humanx Commonwealth (and everything else in the Milky Way.) His efforts take him to the land of his mortal enemies, the bloodthirsty AAnn, where chances are excellent that Flinx may be executed. And he must also seek out an ancient sentient weapons platform wandering around the galaxy and then communicate with it, a powwow that could very well fry his brain. Then there are the oblivion craving assassins determined to stop Flinx before he can prevent total annihilation. With a future that rosy, it's no surprise that Flinx is flirting with disaster. Still, he's no quitter. Now he's going to need every once of his know-how, because he's venturing to places where no one's every been, to do what no one's ever done, and where his deadliest enemy is so close it's invisible.

Pip and Flinx: Book Ten.Never have the cares of the universe lain so heavily on Flinx's shoulders, nor the forces against him seemed so invincible. Pursued by a newly revealed sect of doomsday fanatics and hunted by factions inside and outside the Commonwealth, he is expected to single-handedly avert a looming galactic crisis (or bear responsibility for the consequences.)

But with increasing number of enemies chasing him with ever greater enthusiasm, Flinx must find a getaway shrouded in obscurity. It seems that Jast, a planet smack in the middle of nowhere, is prefect, but trouble can find Flinx anywhere. What he doesn't know is that his vacation paradise is a danger zone of the highest magnitude. And by the time he learns the truth, it may be too late.

Pip and Flinx: Book One. So-named because of its beautiful "wings" - great golden clouds forever suspended in space. And like its namesake, the planet attracted unwary tourists, travellers, space-sailors, merchants - a teeming, constantly shifting horde that provided a comfortable income for certain quick-witted fellows like Flinx and his pet flying-snake, Pip. The pickings were easy enough so that you with care you didn't even have to be dishonest. In fact, you could hardly call it dishonest - stealing a starmap from a dead body that didn't need it any more. But Flinx wasn't quite smart enough. He should have wondered why the body was dead . . .
