(The first book in the Dragonstar series)
A novel by

Day of the Dragonstar
Book One of the Dragonstar Series
by David Bischoff and Thomas F. Monteleone

An artificial Jurassic world spins through space, kilometers long and made to order, build to endure for an eternity. An enticing mystery for the humans of the Heinlein exploratory mission, it holds deadly secrets from the universe's savage past.


Day after artificial day, outwitting the carnivorous saurians that had devoured their shipmates, the two survivors of the Heinlein expedition to the mysterious object known as Artifact One picked their way through the vast, horizonless jungle that filled the hull of the star-traveling terrerium.

They did what a man and a woman fighting together to survive usually do:
They prayed for rescue.
They searched for a way to escape.
They fell in love

Then, from a rise in the forest, they saw a wall.
And something on the wall saw them.


Atop a crumbling rampart stood a sentry, weapon grasped in its four-fingered hand, partly clothed ... its snout instintively twitching at the scent of the man and woman walking toward its city.
