After several gripping opening pages in which Dane Thorson, assistant cargo master of a free trader spaceship, awakes from attempted poisoning in unknown surroundings, [Postmarked the Stars] lapses into standard cosmic cops and robbers…. There's less to the plot than meets the eye, as the last half of the book consists mainly of repetitive captures and escapes; also, the characterizations, dull and two-dimensional, do not live up to the standards of Miss Norton's other books. This book is not likely to win her new readers, and will only disappoint her many fans. (p. 1947)
