Trying to Remember the Name of a Sci-Fi Book

Hi all,

I am trying to remember the name of a science fiction book I read in the late 80’s or early 90’s. Aliens have cut Earth off from the rest of the universe due to our violet ways. A renegade alien (I think named Wide) has come to Earth, disables our weapons, and takes special forces groups into space to fight against another group of aliens who have periods of “insanity” during their mating cycles where they steal resources from other aliens.

Any help is appreciated!

Nevermind, I found it. The book was Starstrike by W. Michael Gear.

Damn purple humans!



I need a spell check that checks for context.:smack:

It’s a good thing the aliens weren’t the Purple People Eaters.
(They eat Purple People)

I remember that book. I think it was called The Puce Patrol.
