Altruistic space pirates, nuclear-powered djinn, a time-travelling kangaroo - and more....
Three complete novels of humorous adventure, one of them a Hugo Award finalist, plus a trio of witty short stories with the distinctive Leinster touch.
The Pirates of Zan - When a young man is accused and jailed unjustly, he is given a secret offer - in return for help in escaping, he must shake up the galactic establishment, which is getting dangerously set in its ways. He succeeds beyond anyone's wildest expectations, seemingly becoming a space pirate, but being in reality the deadliest do-gooder in the galaxy.
Gateway to Elsewhere - Suppose that somewhere the world of the Arabian Nights is real, including very powerful and dangerous djinns who are nothing like Aladdin's big blue pal. A man from our world wouldn't have a chance against them...or would he?
The Duplicators - A planet where everyone has a machine that can duplicate anything would be the wealthiest world in the galaxy, right? Wrong. And unless the hapless voyager who's trapped on the planet can find a solution to its problem, his voyaging will be over - permanently.
Plus three short stories, including "A Logic Named Joe", an uncannily prophetic story of home computers and the internet - written in 1946!
