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!

He was a founding member of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Robert A. Heinlein dedicated his 1985 novel The Cat Who Walks Through Walls to Anderson and eight of the other members of the Citizens' Advisory Council on National Space Policy.
