The Trouble Twisters - Poul Anderson N/A

When Mankind made it to the stars, it wasn't the glory of the nation that drove them ever further. It was Trade.

The ships of the combines and the smaller traders searching the alien worlds for goods that could provide that edge that would see those traders earn undreamt of profits

This collection focuses on the early career of David Falkayn, who would become one of those Merchant Adventurers, from apprenticeship to his first Merchant Adventure.
