Orbit Unlimited (History of Rustum #1) - Poul Anderson

A fix-up novel. Portions of this book appeared, in somewhat different form, in ''Astounding Science Fiction'' for January 1959 and January 1960, and in ''Fantastic Universe'' for October 1959.

WAS IT A TRAP?

The colonists' ships sped toward the far star – they were free at last from the tyrannical government which had oppressed them from birth.

Then came the message from Earth – "Return at once – new government – guarantee your freedom – at home!"

Was this a reprieve from death – for the perilous ordeal of colonizing an unknown planet would cost many lives – or was it a trick?

There were only hours to decide – for it was almost too late to turn back...

In ORBIT UNLIMITED, Poul Anderson writes a stirring and fascinating adventure of tomorrow.
