About the Author
Poul Anderson was one of the most prolific and popular writers in science fiction. He won the Hugo Award seven times and the Nebula Award three times, as well as many other awards, notably including the Grand Master Award of the Science Fiction Writers of America for a lifetime of distinguished achievement. With a degree in physics, and a wide knowledge of other fields of science, he was noted for building stories on a solid foundation of real science, as well as for being one of the most skilled creators of fast-paced adventure stories. He was author of over a hundred novels and story collections, and several hundred short stories, as well as several mysteries and nonfiction books. He died in 2001.

Unfortunately, there was a farcical and very bad Hollywood version filmed (with some fine actors) that did not and can not come close to honoring the book, and what could without a George Lucas and a Star Wars budget to do the story justice? I heartily recommend the book. I suggest you avoid the film.
My only fault with this edition is all the ‘appreciations’ expressed at the beginning of the book from authors who were friends with Poul Anderson. It was nice to see that the book impacted on these authors but I’d have rather gotten into the story first and read the appreciations later.
Other than that a great book.
