Alan Dean Foster


The Tar-Aiym Krang
Year 1972
Publisher New English Library  (Ballantine)
ISBN 450042707



Flinx of the Commonwealth

The Tar-Aiym had been dead for perhaps a million years.  Once they had fought against and then ruled the galaxy.  But now they had vanished, leaving only the legend of their final artifact - the lost Krang.

Nobody knew what the Krang might be, but everyone wanted it.  Until it was found ...

For the Krang had a purpose.  The Krang had power and a will of its own.




Flinx is an orphan living in the slums of the planet Drallar with his venomous, flying minidrag, Pip. Flinx yearns to find out his heritage and the origin of his strange mental powers. He stumbles across a map leading to a strange alien artifact on an abandoned world and is swept up in a grand adventure. Foster's Humanx Commonwealth and Flinx and all his companions are fascinating creations.

Horsehead Nebula
The Horsehead Nebula, embedded in the vast and complex Orion Nebula, is seen in this representative-color image from the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope in Hawaii. The dark molecular cloud, roughly 1,500 light years distant, is visible only because its obscuring dust is silhouetted against another, brighter nebula. The prominent horse head portion of the nebula is really just part of a larger cloud of dust which can be seen extending toward the bottom of the picture.
