I'm right here!
Searching for a Sci Fi book I read back in the 70's or 80's. I believe the author was from the Virgin Islands.
Characters I remember are;
main character was of African decent
"Thingummy" alien sidekick to main character
A cube shaped alien species known as "Heavies".
"The Princess" a golden skinned alien female who got suddenly dumped into the main characters space ship.
"The Builders" an unknown unseen group who's ships build stuff in the universe.
"The Enemy" a group bent on domination of everything or destruction of that which they cannot control.

The story was written in the first person about the main character and the organization he was with as they fight "The Enemy"

Thanks.

Can you think of anything else about the protagonist?
Was he high ranked in the organisation?
Any thoughts on his name?
Was a big issue made out of his race or was that just mentioned?

Thanks

Hi dannymcq;
The protaganist's were always "The Enemy"
The main character had no name.
Race was not stated, just " I was born under a tree in Africa"
The only other thing I remember is that at the end of the story there was a huge battle with "The Enemy" and a vortex or worm hole opened and he and his escaped though it (or sucked into it) and found Earth at the other end.
That's all I can remember.
Thanks.

Found!

The Janus Syndrome by Steven E McDonald

Searching for this book was what lead me to this site. I've done the same Google search useing the same parameters for a few years with no results .... until today.
Low and behold up pops a photo of the book cover and I absolutely recognize it.
I doubt it will meet my memory of it but I've ordered a copy.
