Accompanied by his faithful minidrag Pip and a most troublesome alien called Abalamahalamatandra -- Ab for short -- Flinx set out for Alaspin, the ruggedly primitive homeworld of his flying snake. There he hoped to find the giant man with the gold earring who somehow held the key to Flinx's mysterious past and to the strange powers he possessed. Chasing down his heritage was trouble enough, but Flinx didn't know what real trouble was until he realized that the Qwarm -- a deadly assassin squad -- were three steps behind him with a contract to kill. But the minidrag's homeworld did not offer safety and Flinx had a terrible time just staying alive ... a matter complicated to no mean degree by a collapsar already set on an unstoppable death course across the galaxy!

Good. Aged book. PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASE. Please note this book is over 20 years old. It will therefore have tanned pages, age spots and plenty of shelfwear. However for its age it is still very useable, and a great read.
Alan Dean Foster created an interesting saga in the Flinx and Pip series. The novels started in the 1970's and finished in 2009. He has written the final story, so I wanted to re-read the set. We were missing a couple & were able to get them from Alibris. This was one of my favorites from the series, so I was glad to find it. I would recommend this series to classic Sci-fi buffs. A surprise around every corner, and a chance to encounter interesting worlds & species. Enjoy.
Here is the list--
For thr Love of Mother-Not
The Tar-Aiym Krang (1972)
Orphan Star (1977)
The End of the Matter (1977)
Bloodhype (my least favorite)
Flinx in Flux
Flinx's Folly (2003)
Running from the Diety (2005)
