The Sam Gunn Omnibus

by Ben Bova
Release date: 2007
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, short stories

A hero without peer or scruples, Sam Gunn has a nose for trouble, money, and womenthough not necessarily in that order. A man with the ego (and stature) of a Napoleon, the business acumen of a P. T. Barnum, and the raging hormones of a teenage boy, Sam is the finest astronaut NASA ever trainedand dumped. But more than money, more than women, Sam Gunn loves justice. (And he really does love money and women.) Whether hes suing the Pope, helping twin sisters entangled in the virtual sex trade, or on trial for his life on charges of interplanetary genocide, you can be sure of one thing: this is one space jockey wholl meet every challenge with a smile on his lips, an ace up his sleeveand a weapon in his pocket.

Now, for the first time in one volume, Hugo-winner Ben Bova presents all the tales of Sam Gunn to date, including three never before collected in book form. Here is the entire chronicle of Sam Gunn, trailblazer and scoundrel, as he scams his way from one end of the Solar System to the other, giving bold new meaning to the term venture capitalist.
