The Screaming Eagle is a hardscrabble bar at the edge of human colonization. Veterans are welcome, but others can come too if they want. This includes a lost grad student from Earth. The kid's had a rough time out on the raged frontier; he barely survived a raider attack before stumbling into the bar with a gut full of guilt. Now it's up to the old spacers of the Screaming Eagle to help get the poor kid back on his feet. They better do it quick too, or the guy might not survive what just walked in the door.
This time the fair maiden must rescue prince charming -- but Liddy will sucker punch anyone who calls her either of those things.
All Liddy wanted was her space ship back…was that too much to ask?

She had the money (well most of it anyway) to buy it back at a customs auction. But wouldn’t you know it, some jerk in a black jacket wanted the Sundancer too and the bidding went to high heaven. Thanks, Jack! Now the two ex-cons each own half of a one-man ship, and neither Liddy nor Jack think that’s going to work out in the long run.
