First Command PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

First Command free pdf This is the second in a three-volume collection of the legendary "John Grimes" books! 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 it is, the entire "Captain John Grimes - Far Traveller Courier" saga, collected in one volume. These are the tales of John Grimes' action-packed merchantman and courier years. After moving on from the Terran Navy, Grimes tries his hand at leading a private life, and finds he likes being his own man. The only problem is, his ship The Far Traveller has a (very stubborn and very feminine) mind of its own - and a penchant for getting Grimes into the worse sort of interplanetary pickles. This title includes: "The Far Traveller" (with the classic "John Grimes" stories that started it all), "Star Courier", "To Keep the Ship", "Matilda's Stepchildren", "Star Loot", "The Anarch Lords", "The Last Amazon", and "The Wild Ones".
