Independent space trucker Jake McGraw, accompanied by his
father, Sam, who inhabits the body of the truck itself, his
"starrig," picks up a beautiful hitchhiker, Darla, and a
trailer-load of trouble. One of the best of the indies, Jake knows
a few tricks about following the Skyway, which connects dozens, or
maybe hundreds, of planets--nobody knows how many and nobody really
knows the full extent of the Skyway, and much of it remains
unexplored. But somehow, a rumor gets started that Jake has a map
for the whole thing, and suddenly everybody wants a piece of him:
an alien race called the Reticulans; the human government known as
the Colonial Assembly; and a nasty piece of work called Corey
Wilkes, head of the wildcat trucker union TATOO. No matter what
Jake does, no matter how many twists and turns he makes, he cannot
shake any of the menaces on his tail. The Starrigger series
continues with "Red Limit Freeway" and concludes with "Paradox
Alley." "Starrigger" was a nominee for the Locus Award for Best
First Novel in 1984.
