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!
