The Last Planet is the first paperback edition of the novel originally (and subsequently) published as Star Rangers. A starship from a decaying Galactic empire, with a mixed human-alien crew, is exploring the outer fringes of the Milky Way. A crash-landing on an apparently empty planet marks the end of the voyage. With no hope of repairing the vessel, the surviving crewmen must plan their future, allot their resources, and explore all avenues for a new life on this world.

A Man Obsessed is the story of a vengeance hunt in a nightmarish future when all medical practice is firmly in the control of the Government. It's both a psychological tale of a man deteriorating from the effects of dedicating his life to a (perhaps) foolish pursuit of one man, and a not-so-pretty look at the ultimate results of a socialized medicine policy.
