Poul Anderson (1926¿2001) grew up bilingual in a Danish American family. After earning a physics degree at the University of Minnesota, he found writing science fiction more satisfactory. Admired for his "hard" science fiction, mysteries, and historical novels, he was responsible for classic books like The Broken Sword and Brain Wave. A founder of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, he became a Grand Master, and was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.

The Long Way Home based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
"You can't go home again. For home is not merely a place but a situation - and when that situation changes home is no more." That was the teaser on the back cover of my paperback copy of this in 1981 when I was in high school. In 1985 I tested out of college freshman English with an essay written on that thesis. It's classic Anderson where the characters are just as if not more important to the story as the ray guns and starships.
