The Lunar Observatory on earth is picking up a very strange and unidentifiable signal from the direction of Cygnus. When the meaning of this signal is finally understood, it clearly spells disaster for earth. An immense object is rushing towards the Solar System, travelling nearly at the speed of light, its intense nuclear radiation is sure to kill all life on earth within months. As it moves close the humans can discern that it is an enormous convoy of some sort, nearly as large as a planet. And there is nothing anyone can do to divert such an enormous alien object. Then, unexpectedly, the object changes course and heads toward the dead planet of Jupiter but what could an enormous alien convoy want with such a useless planet?
To keep the ship by A. Bertram Chandler( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although this was a low point in the ever-changing space career of the legendary John Grimes, it was not without its surprising moments. Between jobs, between loyalties, Grimes was owner and pilot of a small auxiliary vessel whose principal oddity was that it was made of gold. But precious metal or not, Grimes was running errands with it. Until he fell into the clutches of terrorists. Susie and her comrades had a Cause and it was going to take all his efforts to keep the one thing he had to have--his ship. Especially since they left the ship infested with a constantly increasing horde of mini-Susies--vicious little homunculi that looked exactly like their sexy prototype except that they were hungry, sharp-toothed, and their only Cause was to eat Grimes alive!"--Back cover

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fluger was five meters long, had four thick legs, a body of impenetrable molecular density and numerous teeth capable of chewing diamonds into powder .... When the Fluger arrived as unlisted cargo in the enclosed city of Olympus, it launched itslef on a murderous rampage which couldn't be halted. It presented that terrified utopian community with the problem of how to stop an irresistable force. The only answer seemed to be a hired alien assassin--an outer-space humanoid about who the citizens of Olympus knew next to nothing except that he was a professional killer who would not quit until his job was done. But when the irresistable force met the immovable object they turned that fragile city in the sky into a raging battlefield, and their "savior" looked to become as much a menace as his monster counterpart"--Page 4 of cover
The paradox of the Sets by Brian M Stableford( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final contact made by the Daedalus Mission begins badly, even before the ship makes a hard landing in the middle of nowhere. The situation of the colony doesn't seem to make any sense, and neither does the situation of the indigenous aliens--the Sets--that have helped the colony survive and thrive. Alex Alexander doesn't take long to work out a hypothesis that might explain the mystery--a hypothesis that the people on the ground have already worked out for themselves--and he's fortunate enough to fall in with a colonist who's obsessively determined to prove the hypothesis. Unfortunately, the quest seems likely to become so dangerous that both of them might die trying--and there's too much at stake not to take it to the very limit of possibility, no matter what the cost. The stunning conclusion (Book Six) of The Daedalus Mission series

"Take the greatest hunter of a hundred worlds, a man wise to the wiles of beasts and men. Take this professional killer and give him a human target. Take the greatest concentration of brains of a thousand worlds, the Cyclan with its legion of emotionless agents. Take these inhuman monsters and give them a human target. The target for both was Earl Dumarest. But the rule of the hunt was special. Dumarest must be captured but not killed. And the place was extra-special: the Quillian Sector. "The place where space goes mad." The Quillian Sector where Dumarest was searching for lost Terra."--Page [4] of cover
