Read full description of the books Agent of the Terran Empire:I've been meaning to read something by the late Poul Anderson for some time, as I've preodered Multiverse: Exploring Poul Anderson’s Worlds. It's been maybe 15 years since reading anything by him. This one is a quick read, very light and fun science fiction/spy fodder. This book collects four adventures, three of which are very short, originally published in 1950's pulps. My favorite line from the book, "Against looming nebular curtains, Flandry saw two pitted meteors come at him. They rolled and tumbled, like iron dice. He threw in a double vector, killing some forward velocity while he applied a 'downward' acceleration."
