1 Pournelle, Jerry (editor) Imperial Stars : The Stars at War (Bk. I)
New York, NY Baen Books 1986 0671656031 / 9780671656034 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 


Spine shows some creasing. Slight shelf wear.

First in a series of anthologies of science fiction stories on man and government in space.
"Arthur Clarke said it first: If manikind is to survive, then for all but a very brief part of our history the word 'ship' will mean 'space ship.' We will spead through space. We will build a colony on the Moon . . . and we will go to the stars. Where mankind goes, government goes.
It is no idle thing, then, to think about what forms of government we will take to the stars. We in this enlightened age think we know; but do we? We are, after all, no smarter than our ancestors. We know more, but that's quite a different thing -- and we have forgotten much that we had best relearn before we pay dearly for what they knew and we don't." from the introduction by Jerry Pournelle.; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall

"But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival - a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known. "; 7" - 9" Tall; Signed by Author

3 Pournelle, Jerry Prince of Mercenaries
New York, NY Baen Books 1991 0671698117 / 9780671698119 Third Printing Mass Market Paperback Very Good 


Spine is a little creased, corners bumped, slight shelf wear, a few pages dog-eared or slightly creased.

Faced with mutual annihilation, a century ago the Americans and Soviets had joined together to form the CoDominium, which kept peace on Earth and soon became a de facto interstellar empire as scores of new worlds were settled. It was an uneasy, unstable peace with the CoDominium stomping on every bit of innovation or original thought it found, but it endured for a century.
Now, finally, the CD is starting to disintegrate and it is up to men such as John Christian Falkenberg and Prince Lysander of Sparta to save what outposts of civilization they can from the impending wreckage.
Tanith is a key world now, with its plantations, run by virtual slave labor, growing enormous amounts of drugs that serve to pacify the masses back on Earth. At stake is the money to be made from these drugs and the prisoners growing who have little left to lose by rebelling. This is a story of Tanith and of Falkenberg's Legion, set against a backdrop of a crumbling empire.; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall
