Vandals of the Void, J. M. Walsh , single work novel science fiction thriller
A series of unexplained events in space. A confederation of planets and mysterious aliens that threaten it. An Away Team investigating a spaceship showing no signs of life. A cloaking device using sophisticated enemy technology. Sounds like an episode of Star Trek, doesn't it? The only thing is Vandals of the Void was published 35 years before the first original Star Trek episode was shown. Or is it more a precursor to Star Wars? Witness fiction's first interplanetary space war. Where did these crested invaders come from? And why were they threatening to bring destruction to the three civilised planets? In a breathless world of space pirates and disintegrator rays, Interplanetary Guard Jack Sanders discovers the unexpected during a voyage to Mars: romance with the impressive, alluring Jansca Dirka...and a war of the worlds. Vandals of the Void is space opera on a grand scale
