He doesn't get hired on for the best money but there is a different type of chance on an independent trader space ship. You can be gone on longer trips, not make as much money, strike it rich if they hit a lucky streak or be injured or even killed if they are unfortunate....
This is a classic story and I still love Andre Norton's work after all of these years. She can tell a story and that has science, adventure, suspense and in an entertaining way. I was disappointed to find several mistypes and errors in the book but I overlook those in my rating. That is not the fault of the author but the editor and publishing company. This is still a good book and I enjoyed reading it again.
I gave this book 5 stars and I still think it is a good book.
Anyway, if you like the space adventure stuff and not the witchy stuff, you'll like this one.
Dane Thorson has just completed his training as a cargo master and is anxiously awaiting his first assignment. Unlike some of his more fortunate classmates Dane does not get a berth on one of the ships owned by one of the larger companies but instead is assigned to a Free Trader, one of the independent operators who ply the riskier, more distant routes. As Dane sets out on his first great adventure he soon discovers that trouble can come from the most unexpected sources.
Those who are fans of Heinlein's novels of the same era (1950's and 60's) will enjoy this series as well. Curl up with this one to travel to the far reaches of the galaxy and back in time to the first time you read about adventures among the stars.
Occasional editing issues were noted. I am not sure if this book was created from a scanned copy then converted to text through software but most of the errors are consistent with such a process. There were occasional hyphenations which are not necessary for ebooks and occasional typos which should have never made it past a spellchecker. This was not a major issue but it was a minor distraction.
