Synopsis

The Snows of Ganymede

When the Order of Planetary Engineers sent Hall Davenant to Ganymede for a terraforming survey, they knew that the job on the airless, frigid Jovian moon would be tough. Changing it to resemble Earth - with fertile land, water and good air - was the biggest and most important planet conversion job ever attempted by the Engineers. But they hadn't counted on the already too Earthlike behaviour of the Ganymede colonists, who had never altered the ancient Earth-born habits of intrigue, bigotry and double-dyed treachery!

War of the Wing-Men

Three Terrans crash on a planet whose food is poison to them. They have to get to the other side of the planet where a Terran base camp can feed them. Unfortunately they get embroiled in a war between rival tribes of wing-men. van Rijn uses his wits to manipulate the situation to his own benefit and brings about a truce.
