Description:

No Truce with Kings spins the tale of a uniquely feudal future America at war with itself. As the battles and intrigues multiply, the most perceptive generals begin to realize that their society is being socially engineered by a mysterious secret society. The Longest Voyage chronicles the adventures of an old-fashioned hero. A latter day Columbus, on a faraway planet, builds an ocean going ship and sails away in order to prove that his world is round. But the new civilizations he discovers on a distant shore worship something far more potent than his leaky wooden caravel-a crashed starship that holds the key to the entire future history of their race. Poul Anderson's evocative stories draw freely upon the founding conventions of fantasy. Echoes of space operas and epic sagas resound in his work. In 1953 Anderson earned a degree in Physics, and exploded upon the literary scene in 1954 with the publication of 19 stories and 3 novels. His familiarity with Scandinavian languages, literature and traditions characterizes his stories, which have earned him 5 Hugo awards.
