A collection of science fiction stories written by acclaimed author Poul Anderson.

Poul Anderson is best known for sci-fi adventure stories in which larger-than-life characters succeed gleefully or fail heroically.

Anderson's also famous for writing 'Call Me Joe' (not included in this volume) which featured the premise of a paralyzed man whose mind is remotely controlling an alien body. This same theme also appears in James Cameron's 2009 movie "Avatar" - similar enough that some reviewers are calling for Anderson to receive some form of credit.

Included in this volume:
Story One: Duel on Syrtis
Bold and ruthless, he was famed throughout the System as a big-game hunter. From the firedrakes of Mercury to the ice-crawlers of Pluto, he'd slain them all. But his trophy-room lacked one item; and now Riordan swore he'd bag the forbidden game that roamed the red deserts ... a Martian!

Story Two: Security
In a world where Security is all-important, nothing can ever be secure. A mountain-climbing vacation may wind up in deep Space. Or loyalty may prove to be high treason. But it has its rewards...

Story Three: The Valor of Cappen Varra
We have said that there are many and strange shadows, memories surviving from dim pasts, in this fantastic universe of ours...

Story Four: Industrial Revolution
Ever think how deadly a thing it is if a machine has amnesia - or how easily it can be arranged...

Story Five: The Sensitive Man
One man stood between a power-hungry cabal and world mastery--but a man of unusual talents...

These are the original and unabridged versions of these classic science fiction treasures. A must-have for fans of classic sci-fi!
