Agent of the Terran Empire - Poul Anderson


Here is a set of swashbuckling, breathtaking adventures amongt the stars, in a future yet to come. Sir Dominic Flandry, now a captain in Earth's Imperial Naval Intelligence Corp, schemes and fights his way through a clutch of enemies, human and nonhuman.

Sir Dominic, no grim and humorless professional hero, can crack a joke, hoist a bottle, or kiss a girl with the best of them. And he quickly sees the purpose of the powerful, nonhuman Mersian Empire: to end the uneasy peace with humanity by sweeping it aside. He also sees corruption and cowardice at home. If the Long Night is not to come in his own lifetime, if the things he cares about are to be saved, he must do what he can to prevent the onrushing destruction.

From world to world Flandry goes, risking his neck time after time, that Earth may survive – but will he?
