Three novels and three novellas together for the first time in volume six of multiple Hugo- and Nebula-award-winning Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization science fiction adventure epic. In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one secret agent stands ready with the grit and wits to save a corrupt empire by hook or by crook.

In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one man exists who can save his empire—and civilization itself—by hook or by crook, whether his “betters” appreciate his efforts or not. Flandry is both a James Bond style agent of empire, and agent-provocateur of change. Flandry is a heroic but tragic figure: a man who knows too much history, who knows that battle and scheme as he will the Long Night of Empire is approaching. If that darkness is not to fall in his own lifetime, must do what he can. And anyone, human or alien, who gets in his way, will most definitely regret it. 

Contains three complete Flandry novels collected in one volume for the first time:  The Plague of Masters, Go Home, Hunters of the Sky Cave and A Knight of Ghosts and Shadows.  This is the sixth entry in the seven-volume complete cycle of The Technic Civilization Saga.

Book Description Baen Books, United States, 2012. Book. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Captain Dominic Flandry has been knighted for his many services to the Terran Empire - an Empire which is old, jaded, and corrupt, as Flandry well knows. And while that Sir before his name may be an added attraction to comely ladies, he expects that it will also bring him less welcome attention from envious colleagues within the empire. What it is not likely to do is make him more of an object of interest to the Merseians, whose plots he has repeatedly foiled and who are aware of how much simpler their plans to replace the Empire would be if he were the late Sir Dominic Flandry. Flandry himself has come to understand that there may be no more point to all his victories than that a few trillion of his fellow creatures may live out their lives before the inevitable coming of the Long Night of galactic barbarism. At best, he may have postponed its coming and shortened its duration. But if that is the most he can achieve, so be it - he ll keep on fighting, hoping that the barbarians, too, will pass, followed by a new round of civilization. Seller Inventory # ADI9781451638226
