'Warped by the twisted effects of Strontium 90 fallout, mutants are a victimised underclass on Earth. Denied normal work, many have taken the job too dirty for norms: bounty-hunting. Across the expanding frontier of space, they hunt the criminals too dangerous for the Galactic Crime Commission.
Johnny Alpha is one such Strontium Dog and his latest assignment takes him to Epsilon 5 - a quarantined planet where time has sped up to four-hundred times its normal rate. Johnny is in a literal race against time to avoid all manner of dangers and to find his prey before he ages to death!'

Accompanied by a mismatched group of mutants, Johnny must contend with an all too real doomsday prophecy as well as Grinn.s many henchmen, if he is to bring in his man - dead or alive.'

'Asdoel Zo hires Johnny Alpha and his Strontium Dogs to collect the bounty on Preacher Tarkettle, the man who killed his family. However, after landing on the desert world of Santo segrelle, Johnny's team is attacked and their weapons destroyed. Now armed with ancient six-shooters and rifles, Johnny and his fellow mutants soon realise they have been tricked: Zo is a twisted big game hunter and he has his sights set on hunting the deadliest prey in the galaxy - the Strontium Dogs!'

'In the worst end of the galaxy, bounty hunter Johnny Alpha and his companions chase an escaped felon across Miltonia: the only planet where mutants are the majority and normal humans are the mistrusted minority. But when their quarry has the power to steal other mutants' identities, nothing is as it appears. Hard action and dark satire collide at the end of the galaxy.'

Again some excellent stories from a variety of writers that all know their SD stuff.
