Intense revenge Sci-Fi based on the Count of Monte Christo. It is set in a time where teleportation is commonplace. Known as "jaunting" it's a mental skill that everyone has.

The book's "hero" is Gully Foyle, a lethargic and dull-witted Merchant Marine. At the start of the book he's not having the best of times as he's stranded in the void of space inside a very small stranded spaceship.

Just when Gully is on the verge of suicide he sights a spaceship, the S.S. Vorga. He desperately signals it, but the ship ignores his signals. Enraged Foyle swears revenge!

Driving by his intense hatred Gully manages to find a way out of his space coffin and goes after the crew of the Vorga. He lets nothing get in his way, and the road to revenge isn't pretty..
but it is definitely frantic and mind-blowing!

With some very strong characters, intense storyline and simple but effective plot this is one of the greatest revenge stories ever written, and a definete must-read!
