       Additional Information  
     
      Number four in the collected adventures of the legendary John Grimes of the Galactic Rim series, including four novels:
    * The Anarch Lords: John Grimesí short career as a somewhat benevolent space pirate is over, but he has sunk even lower, becoming a politician. Heís now the governor of a planet of anarchists, where term limits are unnecessary, what with all the assassinations taking place.

    * The Last Amazon: Back on Sparta, the formerly all-male planet, Grimes is waiting for his own ship to arrive when heís caught up in yet another revolutionóand you canít tell the good guys (or gals) without a program.

    * The Wild Ones: Back on Earth was the last place that Grimes expected to be. Another thing he hadnít expected was accusations of witchcraft being taken seriously.

    * Catch the Star Winds: An experimental sailing ship of space was intended to exceed the speed of light. Then strange things happened involving time itself, and the crew wasnít sure they would ever see home, or their home time, again.

    Plus six interrelated short stories starring the indefatigable John Grimes, rounding out a large volume of space adventure with a dash of humor, and a likable hero who always gamely manages to muddle through. .
