Cross the Stars by AlanGutierrezArt Cross the Stars by AlanGutierrezArt
From the book by David Drake, commissioned and published by Tor Books, 1984.

I did several books for David Drake, including my very first commissioned major book publishing cover, "The Forlorn Hope".

I believe David was just starting out too. Usually a new artist would be paired with a new author.

Cross the Stars was a spinoff of the Hammers Slammers series, that David became famous for. As a Vietnam veteran, his stories were told from the soldiers point of view, often graphic, but real.

All I can remember, is Don Slade, veteran of Hammers Slammers, a hover-tank unit, travels from planet to planet, fighting battles, as merceneries for hire...
