AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In luck and out of luck, John Grimes was a living legend of the spaceways. He had been an officer of the service, he had been the victim of a mutiny, he had discovered lost worlds, he had served under strange masters and on strange ships, but he had never turned space pirate. Until this adventure. How it happened was a complex story to begin with, but typical Grimes luck. How he became the terror of the star lanes developed, as usual, from his own efforts to make an honest living and other's efforts to use him for devious diversions.

Bertram Chandler , New York (City) : Baen Books , 2011 Z1843035 2011 selected work novella science fiction 'Number three in a four-volume collection of the legendary John Grimes of the Galactic Rim series. Classic Star Trek meets the high seas. If space travel is going to be anything like sailing the oceans, then A. Bertram Chandler has surely caught its absolute essence in his Grimes novels. Here are the crowning tales of Grimes' career - the Grimes "Rim Commodore" stories. In these tales, Grimes has found his true calling out on the edge of galactic civilization. He's the sheriff of a realm where pioneer colonies and parallel dimensions overlap, and a starship captain must be prepared for adventure in all possible worlds.

    Galactic Courier brings together all previous Commodore Grimes tales - Star Courier, To Keep the Ship, Matilda's Stepchildren, and Star Loot.
