    They came in armies from under the sea - they possessed an intelligence and cunning beyond any human. These incredible tales were dismissed as the ravings of madmen by marine expert Peter Hallows and his lovely assistant Sally Brent. But then they appeared…strange and monstrous creatures that Hallows and his expedition might never live to describe.

    He was a cunning, ruthless opportunist who paid when he had to and stole when he could - but never when there was the slightest chance of getting caught. That's what had John Grimes worried: Here was Kane directly under the watchful eyes - and guns - of a Federation Survey vessel, openly engaging in kidnapping and trafficking in human flesh! Despite the fact that the beautiful inhabitants of this Lost Colony faced a fate worse than death, a more cautious - or less gallant - officer would do nothing - secure in the knowledge that regardless of appearances there would be some loophole that placed the Law squarely on Kane's side.

Add to that strangeness an Outsider ship filled with technology so far in advance of the human as to appear magical, and the catalytic presence of Commodore John Grimes, and anything can happen - anything at all.

    In his long and fabulous career as the Captain Hornblower of space, John Grimes was to experience many strange things, rising through the ranks of the Interstellar Federation from triumphs to disaster, and ultimately becoming the most famous of the Rim Runners, far out along the edge of the Milky Way. But there was a period when Grimes fell between one cosmic empire and another, on his own, commander only of a single deep-space pinnace and looking for work. And that was when he became a god! He thought he was just doing a mailman's job, but the price of the postage turned out to be divinity - with a lovely nude postmistress certified for a goddess!

    Being lost in space was no new experience to John Grimes, whose career as an interstellar officer had brought him into many such dilemmas. But being lost inside a colossal alien spacecraft had no precedent. Complicating the matter was the discovery that the very universe was not their own but an alternate and that their captor seemed to be the omnipotent force of that entire other cosmos.

    In luck and out of luck, John Grimes was a living legend of the spaceways. He had been an officer of the service, he had been the victim of a mutiny, he had discovered lost worlds, he had served under strange masters and on strange ships, but he had never turned space pirate. Until this adventure. How it happened was a complex story to begin with, but typical Grimes luck. How he became the terror of the star lanes developed, as usual, from his own efforts to make an honest living and other's efforts to use him for devious diversions.

    John Grimes, astronautical superintendent of Rim Runners and commanding officer of the Rim Worlds Naval Reserve, was tired of being a desk-bound space commodore. So when the chance came for him to do a little personal astronautical trouble-shooting, he didn't ask who, why or what - he just went. Which is how he found himself involved with time-space worlds, predatory starfish, and legendary characters apparently come to life. That's what can happen when you are out at the galaxy's edge and call forth The Rim Gods.
