Two complete novels of interstellar adventure: "Earthblood" by Keith Laumer and Rosel George Brown chronicles one man's struggle to find his destiny in a future where the very existence of Earth is a legend that few believe. Humanity was defeated by the hostile Niss millennia ago and humanity had scattered across the galaxy. Roan had been raised by aliens, but he knew that he was human and nothing was going to stop him from finding his lost homeworld, not even the space fleets of the Niss."Sibyl Sue Blue" by Rosel George Brown is the story of cigar-smoking Sergeant Sibyl Sue Blue, one of the toughest cops that the criminals on a future Earth hope never to meet. But she's not after burglars, muggers or drug pushers now. Her husband has disappeared on a mission to the planet Radix and she's going to get him back, one way, or another, and any unfriendly aliens had better get out of her way, if they know what's good for them. Plus, for the first time in one volume, all of Keith Laumer's other stories of the alien Niss, as well as a generous assortment of stories by Rosel George Brown, who was a master of pointedly humorous adventure. Science fiction adventure, ranging from the grim to the wildly comical in a generous volume by two masters of the form.

Bluejay Books, 1984. Trade paperback, illustrated by Alan Gutierrez. This 1966 novel is a stand-alone SF novel set in the far future of the "Retief" Universe.About the Author:
SF legend Keith Laumer was a captain in the U.S. Air Force and later an officer in the Diplomatic Corps, serving all over the world–service which provided Laumer with a solid background both for his fast-moving adventure stories including his Bolo saga which introduced supremely powerful (and highly ethical) futuristic battle tanks and his satirical comedies featuring crafty intergalactic diplomat, Retief.
Rosel George Brown attracted attention during her unfortunately brief writing career with an impressive selection of stories in leading science fiction magazines which combined science fiction and irresistible humor, ranging from the dryly witty to raucous slapstick. Brown was nominated for a Hugo Award in 1959, and her first novel, Sibyl Sue Blue, included here, was widely and favorably reviewed. Brown died of cancer in 1967 at the age of 41.

This weird inter-planetary circus troupe is suddenly pirated by another vessel. But its outlaw commander, the dashing Henry Dread, turns out to be a pure-strain human, and he instantly takes a liking to our youthful hero.
