    Plague Ship by Andre Norton North, Alice Mary Norton Andre was a female writer was first published in 1954 and is a great example of vintage Golden Age SF.Very much reminiscent of Heinlein juveniles or Frederik Pohl or especially Poul Anderson and his Polesotechnic League series featuring Nicholas Van Rjin Norton has a character, a trader also, named Van Ryche though Norton s Van Ryche does not come close to the personality of Van Rijn The second in her Dane Thorson Solar Queen series, Plague Ship by Andre Norton North, Alice Mary Norton Andre was a female writer was first published in 1954 and is a great example of vintage Golden Age SF.Very much reminiscent of Heinlein juveniles or Frederik Pohl or especially Poul Anderson and his Polesotechnic League series featuring Nicholas Van Rjin Norton has a character, a trader also, named Van Ryche though Norton s Van Ryche does not come close to the personality of Van Rijn The second in her Dane Thorson Solar Queen series, this describes a cargo ship on a distant planet that picks up an alien bug and gets labeled a plague ship Modern readers may see some similarities with Ridley Scott s Alien films, though Norton s 50s era aliens are no where near as scary.This was my first introduction to Norton s prolific canon and this is odd because I have something of a connection to her Ms Norton lived her final few years in Murfreesb...

    Plague Ship 1956 is the second installment in Andre Norton s so called Dane Thorson series, and is a direct continuation of the previous volume, Sargasso of Space A reading of that earlier novel is highly recommended before going into this one Plague Ship does everything that a good sci fi sequel should It expands on the possibilities of the previous book, deepens the characters, increases the action and leaves us wanting stillIt s a very fast moving and suspenseful tale, ful Plague Ship 1956 is the second installment in Andre Norton s so called Dane Thorson series, and is a direct continuation of the previous volume, Sargasso of Space A reading of that earlier nov...

    Though I realized I have a TON of Norton North books to get through, this is my favorite one to date I read a lot of maritime history, and the worst thing that could happen when you re halfway between to points is either a fire or a disease If you stop to think about it, there really aren t that many differences between a maritime vessel in the 1700 s and the spacefaring vessels of the future Each planet would have to have strict rules to prevent the spread of other worldly disea...

    The second book in the Solar Queen series, a good sequel to Sargasso of space actually a little better, but both are fun reads Well written as always from Andre Norton, not to difficult to figure out what was happening but a good original story If you enjoy classic si fi you will like Plague ship.

    One of the Solar Queen series, these are space opera in the old school, and fun to read In this adventure, the trading ship is stricken by a strange ailment, and unless they are fast and clever, they will be quarantined and abandoned to die The ship s cat plays a pivotal role, an element I enjoyed.

  8. Denis says:

    A novel by the very prolific pulp novelist that, unfortunately, is seldom mentioned when speaking of golden age ScFi authors She is pre le Guin and Tiptree Jr She tends to leantowards fantasy and is not considered hard SF , but can spin a spaceship yarn right up there with the likes of Eric Frank...
