Votre note
Gully Foyle was a Mechanic's Mate 3rd Class, a crewman with no education, no skills and no ambition. But he did want to live. And Gully Foyle had lived for 170 days, the only survivor of the wreck of the spaceship Nomad, drifting halfway between Mars and Jupiter, living in an airtight locker the size of a giant's coffin, when the spaceship Vorga passed by, leaving him to rot, giving him a compelling reason to make it back to Earth.
Alfred Bester's classic tale of murderous revenge in a brilliantly realized, decaying and lurid twenty-fifth century is a masterpiece of science fiction, ablaze with savage images, brimming with stunning ideas, powered by a legendary character, forever contemporary, always an inspiration.
