The galaxy teems with life. The young Asher Tye is in training under the alien October One, primarily in psionic skills. He fails and is given the boot. On his way home he is recruited by the Guild of Thieves, which struggles against the October Guild and teaches extensively in the martial arts on a world called the Warrior Planet. A mysterious nose-shaped alien called The Digger and another October castoff add psionic training. Eventually they confront the October One. The book is out-of-print and available only from the used book marketplace.
