Summary
When the human race spread out among the stars, they took the profit motive with them, and none exemplified that fact better than Nicholas Van Rijn, interstellar trader and capitalist extraordinaire. In Nick Van Rijn, Poul Anderson created one of the most memorable and popular characters in science fiction, and now, all the stories of Van Rijn and the Polesotechnic League will be published in chronological order in three volumes, this volume being the first. Included are novels and stories of Van Rijn flamboyant exploits, plus stories set elsewhere in the Polesotechnic universe
