Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
The third volume of works by SFWA Grand Master Anderson includes 18 masterful short stories (which have collectively won three Hugos and a Nebula), seven limericks, and two untitled songs. Anderson's tremendous range is on display in the paranormal fantasy "Operation Salamander," which combines college football, werewolves, and magical fire in an action-packed tale; the libertarian "Robin Hood's Barn," which observes mankind's need for new frontiers; "Sam Hall," in which a man destroys a government by inventing a folk hero; "A Tragedy of Errors," the sometimes funny tale of Roan Tom, a gruff pirate space captain; and the Sherlock Holmes pastiche "Eve Times Four." Anderson imbues his works with political philosophy, gun-slinging, and emotional depth, mixing hard science with superior world-building and intelligent storytelling. (Sept.)

Meet the Author

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.
