Publisher's Summary

Caligula of the Stars

Though he was later accused of every crime and sexual perversion in the galaxy, Hope Hubris began as an innocent. Because he defended his older sister against the violent lusts of a wealthy scion, Hope and his peasant family were forced to flee Callisto, one of the moons of Jupiter. Pursued by the bloodthirsty scions across the airless desert, they barely escaped with their lives. The illegal space bubble was overcrowded with refugees, all hoping to reach Jupiter for asylum.

But the space travelers had not reckoned on the terrible threat of high space - the pirates, barbaric men who rape, rob, and murder, with no thought but to satisfy their bestial appetites. It will take all Hope’s ingenuity to survive, but the atrocities he witnesses will never die. There is only one way he can be rid of them.... Revenge.

©1983 Piers Anthony, This edition published in 2014 by Open Road Integrated Media, Inc. (P)2015 Audible Inc.

    "i love piers anthony but..."
    Any additional comments?

    not his best work by far. Mr Anthony is a superb story teller see the adept series and incarnation series but this was far below the bar set by these works. Authors often ask readers to take leaps of faith to make the story work but i could not make the leap of rape being acceptable, expected and enjoyed. i also felt that his use of rape simply overwhelmed the plot. i could not get through this no matter how hard i tried
