Tales of Pirx the Pilot

The adventures of a hapless space pilot, whose missions beyond the Earth are fraught with disasters. The book traces Pirx’s career from clumsy space cadet to commander of a notorious spaceship with ghostly secrets.

Return from the Stars

Hal Bregg is an astronaut who returns from a space mission in which only 10 biological years have passed for him, while 127 years have elapsed on earth. He finds that the earth has changed beyond recognition, filled with human beings who have been medically neutralized. How does an astronaut join a civilization that shuns risk?

The Invincible

An interstellar 2nd-class cruiser called Invincible lands on Regis III, which seems bleakly uninhabited, to investigate the loss of sister ship, Condor.
