Run for the Stars / Echoes of Thunder(1991)
An omnibus of novels by Jack Dann, Harlan Ellison and Jack C Haldemann II
From the Back Cover: RUN FOR THE STARS. The Kyben demolished Deald's World and their armada was heading for Earth. All that stood in their way was a man on Deald's World named Benno Tallant, about as lousy a candidate for hero as one could imagine: junkie, looter, coward, betrayer. So the retreating Earth forces decide to make him the last man on Deald's World. They surgically implant a cataclysmic bomb in his body, turn him loose, and let the Kyben hunt him down. See Benno Run. Run, Benno, Run Like Hell. ECHOESOF THUNDER: No man, Mohawk or white, walks the high steel like John Stranger - the highest steel of all, space stations under construction in orbit above Earth. Consripted by the megacorporations, unsure of ever seeing his tribe again, Stranger maintains his people's ancient Way. But can the Thunder-beings of his forefathers save him in the next great intercorporate war?
