Publisher's Summary

The Lexman Spacedrive gave man the stars - but at a fantastic price. A nine-year trip to Alpha Centauri and back seemed to take only six weeks to men on a spaceship. When they returned however, their friends and relatives had aged nine years. Spacers lived their entire lives on the starships, raised their families there, and never set foot outside their own Enclave during their landings on Earth. They came to despise Earthers, and the Earthers grew to despise them. If only a space drive allowing spaceships to travel faster than light could be developed, the time difference could nearly disappear.
