The Boat of a Million Years

The Boat of a Million Years Lowest new price: $14.28
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $19.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Others have written science fiction 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 millennia. This story follows them over two thousand 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 and a New York Times Notable Book when first published in 1989, this is one of a great writer's finest works.

The Van Rijn Method: The Technic Civilization Saga #1 (Technic Civilization Series) Lowest new price: $4.18
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $7.99
Author: Poul Anderson

One of the Most Popular Characters Ever Created by Science Fiction’s Grand Master, Poul Anderson. A Complete Novel, The Man Who Counts, is Included in This Large Volume of Action and Adventure, Starring Nicholas Van Rijn, Volume One in the Complete Technic Civilization Series.

When the human race spread out among the stars, they took the profit motive with them, and none exemplified that fact better than Nicholas Van Rijn, interstellar trader and capitalist extraordinaire. He might look like Falstaff and talk in a steady stream of malapropisms, but anybody who might take him for a bumbling buffoon would quickly find themselves taken—to the cleaners!

            In Nick Van Rijn, Poul Anderson created one of the most memorable and popular characters in science fiction, and now, for the first time, all the stories of Van Rijn and the Polesotechnic League will be published in chronological order in three volumes.

            Also included are more stories of Van Rijn flamboyant exploits, plus stories set elsewhere in the Polesotechnic universe. 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.

Author: Poul Anderson

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.

Rise of the Terran Empire: The Technic Civilization Saga Lowest new price: $4.29
Lowest used price: $0.61
List price: $7.99
Author: Poul Anderson

First Time in Omnibus Mass Market. Nicholas Van Rijn, One of the Most Popular Characters in Science Fiction, and His Resourceful Assistant, David Falkayn, Against a Conquering Dictator. Includes Two Full-Length Novels, Mirkheim and The People of the Wind, in a Large Volume of Science Fiction Adventure.

Nicholas van Rijn, the most flamboyant member of the Polesotechnic League of star traders, could see dark times ahead. Fellow league members were using tactics verging on outright piracy, and others were all too eager to sell starships and high-tech weapons to alien barbarians. A planet not previously known for interstellar commerce suddenly revealed a secret fleet of armed starships, and started building an empire. Even if Van Rijn and his right-hand man David Falkayn could find a way to stop this blatant aggression, the glory days of the League were over. Hereafter, for its own protection against well-armed alien marauders the Earth must maintain a strong military fleet, and one charismatic man would found an empire that would learn nothing of the lessons history taught about the fates of other empires as it began annexing other star systems, whether they wanted to join the Terran Empire or not . . .

 

This is the third volume in the first complete edition of Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization saga, and it includes a classic novella which appears here in book form for the first time. And the next volume begins the adventures of Poul Anderson’s other legendary character, Captain Sir Dominic Flandry.

The High Crusade

The High Crusade Lowest new price: $6.29
Lowest used price: $0.85
List price: $12.00
Author: Poul Anderson

One of the Most Beloved Novels of a Grand Master of Science Fiction, with Introductions and Appreciations by Major Science Fiction Figures.

In the year of grace 1345, as Sir Roger Baron de Tourneville is gathering an army to join King Edward III in the war against France, a most astonishing event occurs: a huge silver ship descends through the sky and lands in a pasture beside the little village of Ansby in northeastern Lincolnshire. The Wersgorix, whose scouting ship it is, are quite expert at taking over planets, and having determined from orbit that this one was suitable, they initiate standard world-conquering procedure. Ah, but this time it's no mere primitives the Wersgorix seek to enslave—they've launched their invasion against free Englishmen! In the end, only one alien is left alive—and Sir Roger's grand vision is born. He intends for the creature to fly the ship first to France to aid his King, then on to the Holy Land to vanquish the infidel. Unfortunately, he has not allowed for the treachery of the alien pilot, who instead takes the craft to his home planet, where, he thinks, these upstart barbarians will have no choice but to surrender. But that knavish alien little understands the indomitable will and clever resourcefulness of Englishmen, no matter how great the odds against them. . .

Masters of Science Fiction, Volume Nine, Poul Anderson

Masters of Science Fiction, Volume Nine, Poul Anderson Lowest new price: $12.68
Lowest used price: $17.09
List price: $16.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Armchair Fiction features the best in classic science fiction short story collections. "Masters of Science Fiction, Vol. Nine” features the works of an author who is truly heralded as one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, Poul Anderson. “Night was falling, winter night… A wild dog bayed somewhere out in the gloom. She tried to scream, but her throat was raw with shrieking; only a dry croak would come out, “Help me, help me, help me…” —from “The Star Beast.” Included are the great Anderson novelettes and short stories: THE STAR BEAST, THE NEST, LORD OF A THOUSAND SUNS, THE LONG RETURN, EARTHMAN, BEWARE!, TERMINAL QUEST, WORLD OF THE MAD, SENTIMENT, INC., DUEL ON SYRTIS, and THE VALOR OF CAPPEN VARRA. Poul Anderson was born in 1926 to Scandinavian parents living in Bristol, PA., Poul was the recipient of numerous accolades throughout his lifetime including seven Hugo and three Nebula awards. It’s interesting to note that Anderson received his B. A. in physics with honors, but upon graduating went directly into the field of free-lance writing, never putting his degree to practical use. The world can count its blessings for his decision. He continued writing up until his death in 2001, all the while collecting distinction for his timeless resume of classic fiction.
