Format: Hardcover
This is the smallest of the first 4 Grimes SFBC Anthologies, containing 3 stories, and a collection of 6 short stories (totalling a little over 500 pages):

*** The Last Amazon - Too many coincidences and re-used plots/characters from previous Grime's adventures.

**** The Wild Ones - Chandler's last novel, not bad, the "Seiko" robot character was interesting (although a "Honda" or "Sony" prediction would have been more on target).

**** Short story collection - Nice collection, Chandler is at his best with short stories

* Catch the Star Winds - Dull read, I don't really consider this a Grimes novel, this is by far the worst story in all of the SFBC Grimes Collections... let's hope future anthologies leave out crud like this.

This volume is an omnibus collection of several novels featuring A. Bertram Chandler's greatest character - Commodore John Grimes.

Chandler wrote science fiction from 1944 through 1984; his most recently published story is another Grimes tale featured in the Australian anthology from Jack Dann - Dreaming Again. Baen books makes most of the Grimes stories available in e-book format and is busily publishing print editions of the same.

Chandler's Grimes tales tale place within his Rim Worlds Universe that comprise a total of 116 different stories - 30 novels, six collections and numerous other stories ranging from short 'shaggydog' tales to longer novellas and novelettes.

If you like space operas filled with witty, unique characters, you can't go wrong with Grimes.
