Cover blurb:
THE ADVENTURES OF K9
No. 4

An entire planet vanishes — a planet that was owned by Tellac Inc., a galactic company that turns whole worlds into mines and factories for their own profit. K9 is sent to find the missing planet. He finds instead a new universe and a very strange new breed of men...

K9, the amazing robot dog already known to millions through his star appearances in the Doctor Who T.V. series, now features in an exciting set of books of his own. The other K9 books available include:

K9 AND THE ZETA RESCUE
K9 AND THE BEASTS OF VEGA
K9 AND THE TIME TRAP
