This book collects three of the six Lucky Starr books, "David Starr, Space Ranger," "Lucky Starr and the Pirates of the Asteroids," and "Lucky Starr and the Oceans of Venus." These books are also collected in a single volume titled "The Complete Adventures of Lucky Starr."
"David Starr, Space Ranger"
In this book we meet David Starr, who we will know as Lucky for the remaining five books in the series. David is eating in a restaurant when one of the patrons dies. David is soon on his way to Mars to try and understand the source of the poisoning that has killed a number of Earth people randomly across the planet.
Working incognito, David encounters John Bigman Jones, a blustering little man whose courage matches his big mouth. In spite of the help that Bigman gives David, David's life is nearly ended more than one time. David also discovers a surprise on Mars that he decides does not need to be revealed to anyone else in the solar system.
Eventually David figures out how the poisoning was done, and who the poisoners are. The ending of this short book is fun and makes this book a quick read.
"Lucky Starr and the Pirates of the Asteroids"
In this book, the second in the Lucky Starr series, Lucky journeys to the asteroid belt to fight the pirates that may have killed his parents.Read more ›
If you've read these long ago... I was surprised when I re-read them that I could have understood as much as I apparently did.
