Wet Paint, A. Bertram Chandler , 1959 single work short story science fiction
'You're liable to find anything - or anybody - out on the gloomy, lonely Rim Worlds. But when the Survey Group on unihabited Kinsolving found a cave painting with the paint still wet...well...'

Forbidden Planet, A. Bertram Chandler , 1959 single work short story science fiction
Originally titled "To Hell for a Pastime" before being published in Fantastic Universe as "Forbidden Planet," this story is one of the earliest stories to be set in the bleak cold edge of the Galaxy known as the Rim Worlds.
The Man Who Couldn't Stop, A. Bertram Chandler , 1959 single work short story science fiction
Clavering steals the Shaara crown jewels and flees Earth. After many more crimes, including murder, on various worlds, he ends up on Faraway on the Rim. Once there, he can't be extradited, but he can be deported. Local laws make it virtually impossible for him to fence the jewels. He ends up going to jail and learns the name of a fence there. Upon looking up the fence, he learns that the jewels (which he stashed) have already been returned to the Shaara. He gets sent to jail again for the murder of the fence, and ends up press-ganged (as part of his sentence) into becoming a crew member aboard a ship that is leaving the galaxy entirely.
