Back Cover:

It’s a funny old ‘verse,’ Stuart Flane – Captain of the Terran starship Mercury, thought. Most people who found out a cursed object was responsible for the untimely messy – and unavoidably mysterious deaths of 13 people, would steer the hell clear of it… but for some weird reason, some people seemed to think that owning it was a smart move – or that it would end well for them! Unfortunately for Flane and his intrepid crew, their latest assignment – being sent to relieve a terraforming plant on Atooin of such a cursed object – things did not go without a hitch – but then, the thing was called ‘the Jug of Death‘, and obviously with good reason…”

BEWARE!! This is the Jug of Death!!

One day Sheriff Samuel Janus Yackley had had enough, and took the cursed alien object away in an old cardboard box marked “EMPTEE”…

Synopsis:

The crew of the Mercury are called in to assist a friend of Admiral Tawney in disposing of an alleged cursed item that may have killed 13 people on the planet Atooin… as a personal favor to the Admiral. Flane has to bite down on his tongue quite hard, considering the number of reprimands he had racked up at the hands of the very same Admiral for the paranormal content of his mission reports recently, and he is understandably upset. Of course, the ‘Jug of Death’ turns out to be genuine, and as the saying goes, one thing leads to another – and things on Atooin become very interesting for a while.
