"Welcome to Frolic Street, the bizarre thoroughfare atop the kilometer-long spaceship on which the entire action of this book takes place. It is a futuristic combination of Carnaby Street, a flea market, and Coney Island. Among its incredible shops is a watch-makerís where time runs backward, and among its picturesque, milling crowds is a would-be- assassin. Join King Shavar, ruler of the distant planet Ligeria, to which the spaceship is headed, as he strolls along Frolic Street. With him is beautiful young Claudine St-Cyr of Galactic Police, who is at the moment his body-guard- a full time job on a spaceship loaded with Ligerian fanatics dedicated to killing their king. Even before takeoff there is an attempt on his life, but assassination is only the first, and least, of threats in this swift-paced science-fiction mystery."; 8vo - over 7ĺ" - 9ĺ" tall
