The small group of marooned humans, minus a few individuals who left after a difference of opinions, survived one group of aliens, received help from a second, and is now travelling towards what appears to be a town. But their adoptive planet is a truly peculiar place with many surprises in store: a wild and unknown nature, inhabitants with unpredictable attitudes and morals ... and other, even stranger phenomena well beyond their comprehension!
This "The Wolds Of Aldebaran" story is almost a "How The West Was Won" but set in space. Leo has produced some great characters and art -some very imaginative art!- and never ceases to amaze.
In this story we see humans getting involved in "survival" -so you can guess they've taken their knack of using weapons (even if small weapons) to make a point into space. I think Leo's opinion seems to fall on the side of "There is no reason why aliens are not going to be like us so we need to be careful" -as opposed to "They'll be our space Brothers and Sisters".
If you've not read at a copy of a book in this series then you really should. Initially I was a little cold but sitting down and reading and looking at the art made me a fan. Don't ask "why?" because I try never to question it these days!
