Editorial reviews

Andre Alice Norton's much-loved 1956 sci-fi novel is a sequel to Sargasso of Space, the first in Norton's "Solar Queen" series which she wrote under the penname "Andrew North". Plague Ship contains no shortage of adventure in deep space as mysterious stowaways on Dane Thorson's ship cause the crew to develop "sleeping sickness" that renders them anathema to the rest of the universe.

Michael Warner brings an irresistible spirit of adventure to his performance. He vocalizes alien creatures and brave astronauts with the same gusto inflected with rich intelligence. Norton's fans might wish for Warner to perform the entire "Solar Queen" series.

Publisher's summary

Lured by exotic gems and valuable oils, the crew of the space trader Solar Queen landed on the newly discovered planet Sargol only to find their most ruthless competitor there ahead of them. Still, they tried for fair trade, even according to the sly rules of the strangely feline, native Salariki. But after takeoff they found they had a plague on board, the treachery of someone who'd been on Sargol. Although they'd begun to run out of supplies, they couldn't land or they might start an inter-planetary epidemic ... And the galaxy had ordered that the Solar Queen be destroyed on sight!
