This collection of thirty Chandler stories spans his entire career. Many of the stories, which were only available in hard-to-find magazines, are accompanied by illustrations.
In a review of the collection published in Eidolon 4 (March 1991), Leigh Edmonds writes, 'The stories fall into two sections, as the title suggests. The first third or so of the collection, "From Sea . . .", contains stories set mainly on this planet, while the second two thirds. . . To Shining Star", are space-faring stories. A great many of the stories are really, however, seafaring ones with all the lore of the sea and Chandler's experience in the merchant marine finding expression. Some stories deal directly with the experience of travelling at sea or in space, others tell stories about the people who travel, either on their journeys or once they arrive'.
