Jommy Cross is a slan, a genetically bred superhuman whose race was created to aid humanity but is now despised by normal humans. Slans are usually shot on sight, but that doesn't stop Jommy's mother from bringing him to see the world capital of Centropolis, the seat of power for Earth's dictator, Kier Gray. But on their latest trip to Centropolis, the two slans are discovered, and Jommy's mother is killed.
"An Old Friend"
Slan Hunter tells of a towering conflict in the far future, a war among the races of mankind, as humanity - in all its variations - struggles to survive. Mutant Jommy Cross, the hero of A. E. Van Vogt's Slan, returns, along with the other great characters from that book, including Kier Gray, Gray's beautiful daughter Kathleen, and the villainous John Petty. The final Slan War begins.
"Worst Sf novel of the year"
In the 25th century mankind fought against the hated telepathic slan race in the fierce slan-wars. The result was the extermination of almost all slans, and the establishment of a world-wide police state.
