Great Stories of interplanetary adventure

It is to meet this demand that this new anthology, Swordsmen In The Sky, was created.

Here are a selected group of terrific novelettes by the expert writers of interplanetary derring-do. Here are adventure, peril, and marvel mixed by the master hands of
Poul Anderson  Edmond Hamilton
Leigh Brackett  Andre Norton

Definitely as bold a band of galactic adventurers as you would want to accompany on the conquest of half a dozen worlds!
