(From the publisher):
THE FIRST TWO STAR-SPANNING TALES OF DANE THORSON AND THE SOLAR QUEEN
Almost half a century ago, Andre Norton introduced apprentice cargo master Dane Thorson in Sargasso of Space and Plague Ship.
Dane signed on with the independent cargo ship Solar Queen looking for a career in off-world trade.
In Sargasso of Space, the Solar Queen free traders win exclusive rights to trade with the planet Limbo, but the crew arrives to find most of the planet's surface charred, with little sign of life. They find a valley with life, but others may still lurk. Worse yet, a strange force threatens to cripple the Queen. They must solve the planet's mysteries if they hope to escape not only with tradable goods, but their lives.
In Plague Ship, the Queen travels to Sargol, which promises a wealth of exquisite gems to trade - if the crew can overcome the native feline Salariki's mistrust. But their troubles have just begun! When a mysterious illness overtakes all the crew except the four youngest, the Galactic Patrol labels the Queen plagued and orders it destroyed on sight. With every ship in the galaxy searching for them, the crew have just one chance to save the Solar Queen. But if their bold plan is foiled it would mean the end of the Solar Queen and its crew
