Full Synopsis
Marooned in outer space after an attack on his ship, Nomad, Gulliver Foyle lives to obsessively pursue the crew of a rescue vessel that had intended to leave him to die.

When it comes to pop culture, Alfred Bester (1913–1987) is something of an unsung hero. He wrote radio scripts, screenplays, and comic books (in which capacity he created the original Green Lantern Oath). But Bester is best known for his science fiction novels, and The Stars My Destination may be his finest creation. With its sly potshotting at corporate skullduggery, The Stars My Destination seems utterly contemporary, and has maintained its status as an underground classic for over fifty years.

"Irish reader Gerard Doyle narrates with gravitas and grit, portrays Foyle's character journey from uneducated thug to savvy mastermind, and gracefully handles a surrealist synesthetic section near the end." ---Library Journal Audio Review

"Doyle's crisp and pleasant narrative voice darkens marvelously when channeling the implacable protagonist." ---AudioFile
