Reseña del editor: PERILS OF THE ASTEROID BELT! Its mortal dangers are known to all: the utter isolation, the deadly vacuum of interplanetary space, the interstellar cold, the unimaginable distances....
But for JONATHAN WELBROOK WHITE ETHICAL BROKER & BOURSEMAN
ace but frequently beleaguered stockbroker of Ceres, the financial center of the Asteroid Belt of 2278, the dangers are far more outlandish!
Not only does he have to contend with his wolverine-like boss, J.

all the while....
1.) Trying to keep the richest woman on Ceres from throwing him onto Confinement Rock for his role in her loss of SIX MILLION SOLID GOLD BELTER BUCKLES in worthless titanium futures
2.) Trying to make a mega-fortune by cornering the Solar System’s truffle market, the fabulous source of that culinary masterpiece, DEEP-FRIED BLACK DIAMONDS
3.) Wondering if he should NEVER SHORT A VESTAL VIRGIN, a risky financial maneuver that also carries the added enticement of an painless sex change
4.) Trying to keep from freezing to death as a helpless passenger in the rum-laden interior of THE ORE-BALL EXPRESS as its 55,000 tons of nickel-iron ore hurtle to Earth for a watery splashdown in the South Pacific
5.) Seeing the beautiful Jin Tshei turned into a disconnected head on the Moon as the two of them are caught up in the terrors of the BOXIE REBELLION
No matter however outrageous the problem, however dire the straits, there’s only one Jonathan Welbrook White and he ALWAYS has the right, light-hearted answer!
