Starman's Quest is a science fiction novel by author Robert Silverberg. It was published in 1958 by Gnome Press in an edition of 5,000 copies, of which only 3,000 were bound. It was reprinted as a second edition in hardcover by Meredith Press in 1969.
The novel concerns twins, one of whom travels in a spaceship and is subject to the FitzGerald contraction thus aging slower than the other.
Galaxy reviewer Floyd C. Gale gave the novel a mixed review, rating it three stars out of five and finding that while "exciting story elements abound, . . . too many happenstances and line-of-least resistance writing steal too much of its effectiveness."
