First Time in Mass Market for the Further Adventures of Nicholas Van Rijn, One of the Most Popular Characters in Science Fiction, and His Resourceful Assistant, David Falkayn—Including a Complete Novel, Satan’s World, in a Large Volume of Science Fiction Adventure.

The Polesotechnic League of star traders was prospering, and Nicholas Van Rijn, its most flamboyant member, was prospering most of all as commerce flowed between the stars. But not all League members played fair when trading, nor did some of the non-human races of the galaxy object to dirty tricks. Van Rijn could not be everywhere, and relied on his representatives, foremost among them his young protégé, David Falkayn, and the members of David’s trader team: Adzel, a large dragon-like being who practiced Buddhism, and Chee-Lan, a brilliant but hot-tempered felinesque extraterrestrial.
 

This is the second volume in the first complete edition of Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization saga. And, after the three volumes chronicling the Polesotechnic League’s rise and fall will come more volumes, telling of the rise of the Terran Empire and the adventures of Poul Anderson’s other legendary character, Captain Sir Dominic Flandry.

The Virgin of Valkarion & Earth Alert

The Virgin of Valkarion & Earth Alert Lowest new price: $12.95
List price: $12.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels with original illustrations. All time great science fiction author Poul Anderson wrote the first novel, “The Virgin of Valkarion.” The prophesy spelled blood on two moons! Alfric of Aslak was a fierce warrior with many battles to his credit. When he had ridden into the crumbling city of Valkarion, it was merely to find an employer who would pay him well for his particular skills. But tonight Temple Prophecy foretold of a sword-scarred Outlander who would come riding in from the far North; also of an Empress who would play the part of a tavern bawd. But most significantly, it foretold the death of the Emperor and the bloody fall of the Thirty-ninth Dynasty under the mating of the two moons that circled high above! So for Alfric of Aslak, it meant playing the unwanted, but pivotal role of a would-be heathen king, whose actions could either save an entire race from subjugation, or hasten the final demise of a withering planet. Join master science fiction storyteller Poul Anderson as he spins a barbarian-worlds novel of the first magnitude. The second novel veteran sci-fi author Kris Neville’s “Earth Alert.” It was unlike any other alien threat. It was an alien invasion all right, but what made it particularly nasty was that these tentacled aliens were baby-snatchers with a mad plan to destroy all of humanity. They “changed” their human captives, training them in a secret space station. It was an indoctrination that called for them to think like their alien captors; a training that called for their eventual return to Earth to wipe out the rest of humanity; a grisly task that would culminate with their own eventual deaths. But there was one “changed” Earth girl whom the aliens had accidentally left on Earth. And when she discovered the extent of her mutated powers, it soon became clear that she posed a genuine threat to the plans of alien conquest—if she could only keep her womanhood from getting in the way!

He could see from above that this planet was inhabited. He emerged from the ship - to find himself lassoed and captured by a beautiful redhead mounted on a strange, bird-like creature. That was the first shock; the second was to realise that this world of women looked on him as a monster. For while the women of Atlantis had waited for the coming of the Men, they were certain that this creature who had landed on their planet could not possibly be a man.

Author: Poul Anderson
Brand: Brand: St Martins Pr

Others have written SF on the theme of immortality, but in The Boat of a Million Years, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on, unaging, undying, through the centuries and millenia. We follow them through over 2000 years, up to our time and beyond-to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.

A milestone in modern science fiction, a New York Times Notable Book on its first publication in 1989, this is one of a great writer's finest works.

Author: Poul Anderson

Three novels and three novellas together for the first time in volume six of multiple Hugo- and Nebula-award-winning Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization science fiction adventure epic. In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one secret agent stands ready with the grit and wits to save a corrupt empire by hook or by crook.

In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one man exists who can save his empire—and civilization itself—by hook or by crook, whether his “betters” appreciate his efforts or not. Flandry is both a James Bond style agent of empire, and agent-provocateur of change. Flandry is a heroic but tragic figure: a man who knows too much history, who knows that battle and scheme as he will the Long Night of Empire is approaching. If that darkness is not to fall in his own lifetime, must do what he can. And anyone, human or alien, who gets in his way, will most definitely regret it. 

Contains three complete Flandry novels collected in one volume for the first time:  The Plague of Masters, Go Home, Hunters of the Sky Cave and A Knight of Ghosts and Shadows.  This is the sixth entry in the seven-volume complete cycle of The Technic Civilization Saga.
