THE SENTINEL STARS -- a novel of our world as the Bureau of Internal Revenue would run it!

Rigid, locked, enslaved -- this is our Earth in 2200. East and West have merged at last, so there are no more wars, no more political differences. Citizens everywhere can concentrate on important things, like working off their tax debts. If you are capable and industrious, you may be able to make freeman status for the last few years of your life.

No one questions the status quo. No one speaks out. No one rebels ... until one bright morning when Citizen TRH-247 decides not to go to work -- and even worse, becomes desirous of a girl below his own classification! Thus he makes himself an outcast, with the whole world against him -- and his mere survival depends on his wits, his daring, his strength!

But how can you fight the ultimate bureaucracy?
