Poul Anderson Books Overview

Flandry of Terra

A collection of three Flandry tales: THE GAME OF GLORY: Captain Flandry follows a dying man’s clue to the watery provincial world of Nyanza, where a rebellion against the Empire may be brewing. A MESSAGE IN SECRET: Flandry ventures to the remote colonial world of Altai, whose human inhabitants haven’t been in contact with the Terran Empire for centuries, and discovers that they are cutting a Faustian deal with the Merseians. THE PLAGUE OF MASTERS: Flandry, of his own volition, decides to investigate the remote and isolated world of Unan Besar, to see exactly why it is they have had no contact with the Empire in over 300 years.

Ensign Flandry

The late Poul Anderson, who died in 2001, was one of the giants of science fiction and winner of 7 Hugo Awards, the field’s highest honor. Ensign Flandry is a classic character in the history of science fiction. This definitive omnibus of three Flandry adventures will delight Anderson’s legion of fans and continue the ibooks program of important works of science fiction as begun with its ZELAZNY, BESTER, and SILVERBERG reissues. After the first flowering of the Terran Empire, which has grown increasingly decadent and corrupt, other civilizations in the galaxy threaten to take over the Terran’s worlds. In this scenario steps the debonair, tough and pessimistic Dominic Flandry, half Hans Solo, half James Bond and a hero for the ages!

Tiger by the Tail!

Dominic Flandry is the central character in the second half of Poul Anderson’s ‘Technic History’ series. He first appeared in 1951. The space opera series is set in the thirty first century, during the waning days of the Terran Empire. Flandry is a dashing field agent of the Imperial Intelligence Corps who travels the stars to fight off imminent threats to the empire from both external enemies and internal treachery. His long time archenemy is Aycharaych, from the planet Chereion, a cultured but ruthless telepathic spymaster who weaves plots for the expansionistic rival empire of the alien Merseians. Similar to the James Bond stories which started two years later, every new adventure brings Flandry another beautiful damsel to woo and rescue. The illegitimate son of a minor nobleman, Flandry rises to considerable power within the decadent Empire by his own wits, and enjoys all the pleasures his position in society gives him. Still, he is painfully conscious of the impending fall of the Terran Empire and the subsequent ‘Long Night’ of a galactic Dark Age. His career is dedicated to holding it off for as long as possible.

War of the Gods

The story of the great King Hadding is one of the darkest and most violent to come down to us from the old North. Hadding was raised by giants far from his rightful throng, as his father, a Danish King, was slain shortly after Hadding’s birth. But the times comes when Hadding feels he must reclaim his legitimate place in the land of the old North. He must endure ferocious battles, the charms of voluptuous Valkyries, and a War of the Gods to rival Armageddon.

Harvest of Stars

Space pilot Kyra Davis, aided by an electronic ghost, risks her life in a desperate chess game to try to save a rebel corporation called Fireball from the repressive dictatorship that rules Earth.

The Stars are Also Fire

Returning to the universe of Harvest of Stars, a new era of space exploration journeys to a solar system dominated by machine intelligence, and the legacy of a single woman spells the fate for those of flesh and blood.

Harvest the Fire

Poul Anderson, a legend of SF, is the writer whom the mantle of Robert A. Heinlein descended upon. Anderson devoted his career to the visionary enterprise of creating science fiction set in a carefully extrapolated human society of the future in the spirit of Heinlein. Nowhere does he succeed more powerfully than in the works set in the future history that began in Harvest of Stars, continued in The Stars Are Also Fire, and now leaps into the distant future in Harvest the Fire. This is no less than the tale of the expansion of humanity to the limits of the solar system and beyond. It also chronicles the evolution of machine intelligence, until humans and machines come into conflict in an age when the outward urge and the urge to change are the chief barriers to utopia for many humans and for their machines. Harvest the Fire is the story of politics and poetry: of a poet, Jesse Nicol, who aspires to great work in an era when human literary greatness is apparently all in the past, who travels to the Moon and falls in love with a beautiful revolutionary, Falaire a woman determined to escape from the care of machines. For the machines are now the masters of humanity, and the great work of Falaire is freedom, which must be stolen from the machines. With the precision and clear focus of a master, Poul Anderson tells a sharp and poignant tale against an epic interplanetary background. Harvest the Fire is hard SF raised to the intensity of poetry.

The Fleet of Stars

In Fleet of Stars, Poul Anderson brings back the wildly colorful Anson Guthrie, his iconoclastic hero from Harvest of Stars. The staid, somber people of Earth are not only dependent on technology, they are all but ruled by machine intelligence. Suspecting a conspiracy to suppress humankind’s last vestiges of freedom, Guthrie begins a dangerous journey across the realm of the comets, the asteroids, and the stars themselves willing to risk his life to preserve humanity’s ability to roam the universe.

Hoka! Hoka! Hoka!

One Hoka is a threat to human sanity. Two Hokas are a menace to civilization. And three Hokas…
Heaven help the galaxy, in this hilarious science fiction adventure from two of the best writers in the genre.

Three Hearts and Three Lions

The gathering forces of the Dark Powers threaten the world of man. The legions of Faery, aided by trolls, demons and the Wild Hunt itself, are poised to overthrow the Realms of Light. Holger Carlsen, a bemused and puzzled twentieth century man mysteriously snatched out of time, finds himself the key figure in the conflict. Arrayed against him are the dragons, giants and elven warriors of the armies of Chaos, and the beautiful sorceress Morgan le Fay. On his side is a vague prophecy, a quarrelsome dwarf and a beautiful woman who can turn herself into a swan, not to mention Papillon, the magnificent battle horse, and a full set of perfectly fitting armour, both of which were waiting for him when he entered the magical realm. The shield bears Three Hearts and Three Lions the only clue to Holger Carlsen’s true identity. Could Carlsen really be a legendary hero, the only man who can save the world?

There Will Be Time

Jack Havig, a man born with the ability to move at will through the past and the future of mankind, must save the world from a doomed future of tyranny before his time runs out.

Orion Shall Rise

Years after Earth is devastated by nuclear weapons, the survivors of a floating solar station above Europe assist the emergence of a low tech civilization, until a treacherous faction seizes control of the station. Reissue.

When four large blue cats with psychic powers come aboard an interstellar luxury cruiser, a rash of murders breaks out.

When a scientist learns that aliens in a parallel world are waging a secret war against the Earth, he disappears into that world and his children set out to find him.

Project Pendulum (By:Robert Silverberg)

Twins become involved in an experiment in time travel.

A Place of Silver Silence (By:Ardath Mayhar)

Ten year old Andraia fights with the government not to destroy the planet where she is working alone, because of an intelligent life form she has discovered there.

The Homecoming (By:Barry B. Longyear)

Inhabitants of Earth from seventy million years ago return to reclaim their planet. A struggling advertising man doin his six month reserve call up duty for the Air Force is sent to negotiate for the future existence of a newly evolved species: humanity.

Operation Chaos

This spring, Poul Anderson, winner of the Nebula Grand Master Award for Lifetime Achievement, published Operation Luna, the long awaited sequel to Operation Chaos. Here, available as a beautifully repackaged trade paperback, is the science fantasy extravaganza that started it all. In a war waged against black magic, the fact that Steve is a werewolf and his wife is a highly skilled witch is not unusual. But their adventures prove very unusual, even for their world, when they are given the task of neutralizing an enemys ultimate weapon, the worlds most powerful demon.

Operation Luna

Poul Anderson, recently the winner of the Nebula’s Grandmaster Award for lifetime achievement, returns to the world of his acclaimed novel Operation Chaos with the tale of one family’s mission to the moon. Ginny Greylock and Steven Matuchek are partners an Earth quite unlike our own. For starters, Ginny is a licensed witch and Steve is an engineer and werewolf. Steve moonlights by working on a spacecraft in the Arizona desert, a project which soon discovers that there is life on the moon. Neither Steve nor the US government has any inkling as to the nature of the moonsprites, and everyone is anxious to make contact. But when the time comes to test the spacecraft, a host of bugs, snafus, and angry spirits conspire to prevent the launch. It’s a recipe for perfect lunacy as Ginny and her clan struggle to figure out who, or what, is sabotaging the greatest magical and scientific achievement of the century.

Virgin Planet

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.

The Shield of Time

Here is a science fiction story of a man from the Unattached Agent of the Time Patrol with a time mission. But how much suffering, throughout human history, can he bear to ‘preserve’?.

Vault of the Ages

Five hundred years from now, rival groups battle for the contents of a vault containing remnants of 20th century civilization which could guide their society out of its primitive state.


For millions of years, the part of the galaxy containing our solar system has been moving through a vast force field whose effect has been to inhibit ‘certain electromagnetic and electrochemical processes’ and thus certain neurotic functions. When Earth escapes the inhibiting field, synapse speed immediately increases, causing a rise in intelligence, which results in a transfigured humanity reaching for the stars, leaving behind our earth to the less intelligent humans and animal lifeforms. A transcendent look at the possible effects of enhanced intelligence on our planet.

The Broken Sword

Thor has broken the sword Tyrfing so that it cannot strike at the roots of Yggdrasil, the tree that binds together earth, heaven and hell. But now the mighty sword is needed again to save the elves in their war against the trolls, and only Scafloc, a human child kidnapped and raised by the elves, can hope to persuade Bolverk the ice giant to make Tyrfing whole again. But Scafloc must also confront his shadow self, Valgard the changeling who has taken his place in the world of men.

The High Crusade

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…

The Golden Slave

100 B.C. The Cimbrian hordes galloped across the dawn of history and clashed in screaming battle against the mighty Roman legions. Eodan, son of Chief Boierek, has been on the war campaign for many years. The Cimbrain army has become a hungry homeless pagan tribe. Their sworn enemy, the Romans, they have battled against gloriously. But for all the burning towns, the new caught women weeping, the wine drunk, the gold lifted, the Cimbri did not find a home. Eodan, the proud young chieftain, had been caught and sold into slavery, his infant son murdered and his beautiful wife, Hwicca, taken as a concubine. But the whips and slave chains could not break the spirit of this fiery pagan giant who fought, seduced and connived his way to a perilous freedom to rescue the woman he loved. A struggle that would make him a lover, pirate, commander, and in the end the struggle would make him a legend!

World Without Stars

Cover: Michael Whelan, 2nd Ace printing follows 1967 printing. New introduction by the author. Originally published in 1966, in Analog, as ‘The Ancient Gods.’ A spaceship crashes on an Earth like planet in the throes of a world war.

Tau Zero

For the crew of the Leonora Christine, travelling close to the speed of light on a 30 light year journey, subjective time slows down. Then buffeting by an interstellar dust cloud damages the ship’s deceleration system and it achieves light speed, Tau Zero itself.

Fire Time

The planet Ishtar has three suns: Bel, the ‘real’ sun, the Life Giver. Ea, the Companion who warms the Ishtaran summers. Anu, the Demon Star. Mostly Anu is so far away that it is just a light in the Ishtaran sky. But once every thousand years it comes close. It is then that the barbarians must flee their scorched lands, and civilizations fall. The natives call this Fire Time. Always before, its coming had meant the death of a civilization. But this time, the humans are here, and they have brought with them their magical technology. This time things could have been different.

Forster, Michael Shaara, and John Crowley; and translations of foreign writers’ formative works, including Dino Buzzati and Wolfgang Jeschke. This is must have anthology for all literary interests.
