Ensign Flandry

Dominic Flandry: Book 1

Poul Anderson

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. 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!

A Circus of Hells

Dominic Flandry: Book 2

Poul Anderson

This is the second in the Dominic Flandry series (often compared to C. S. Forester’s Hornblower series except in space). Here Flandry has been promoted to Lieutenant and has a duty to the empire to explore a dark and treasure laden moon. Yet within the desolate peaks and valleys of that strange world of ice and shadow, Flandry found more than he bargained for. The planet swarmed with a hideous race of strange, inhuman creatures controlled by a deranged and brilliant computer brain. Each, like a piece of a bizarre and vicious chess game was programmed to kill.

Poul Anderson

The Barbarians in their long ships waited at the edge of the Galaxy, waited for the ancient Terran Empire to fall, while tow men struggled to save it: ex-Admiral McCormac, forced to rebel against a corrupt Emperor, and Starship Commander Flandry, the brilliant young officer who served the Imperium even as he scorned it.

Trapped between them was the woman they both loved, but couldn’t share: the beautiful Kathryn, whose single world could decide the fate of a billion suns.

The inhabitants of Gwydion are a peaceful race with no weapons let alone concept of hatred or war. Every item on the planet has a mythological meaning to them.

One is from a libertarian culture while the other is from a capitalistic culture. They both fall in love with the same woman and are determined to find out why the Gwydions act the way they do.

Sir Dominic Flandry: The Last Knight of Terra

Technic Civilization Saga: Book 6

Poul Anderson

A KNIGHT WITHOUT ARMOR IN A SAVAGE GALAXY

Captain Dominic Flandry has been knighted for his many services to the Terran Empire--an Empire which is old, jaded, and corrupt, as Flandry well knows--but he also knows that the Empire is better than anything that is likely to take its place. And while that "Sir" before his name may be an added attraction to comely ladies (not that he has ever lacked for the pleasant company of the same), he expects that it will also bring him less welcome attention from envious "colleagues" within the empire.

What it is not likely to do is make him more of an object of interest to the alien Merseians, whose plots against the Empire he has repeatedly foiled. They already are as aware as they can be of how much simpler their plans to rule the galaxy would be if their most dangerous adversary were the late Sir Dominic Flandry.

This is the sixth volume in the first complete edition of Poul Anderson's Technic Civilization saga.
