    Favourite Poul Anderson Novel

    I'm a fan of Poul Anderson, and have read perhaps the majority of his most famous works, but there are doubtless hidden gems I've not read, and I'm also just curious which are the favourite books of the Chronicles learned collective - hence a poll. (A poll for Poul :)) There are three votes...

    Tau Zero

    Poul Anderson's Tau Zero is a hard SF novel all fans should read!

    Poul Anderson?

    I have a recollection of reading a Poul Anderson science fiction novel, with the following? I may be miss-remembering it may have been someone else. Anyone recall the following situation? In what novel? There is a description in a Poul Anderson novel, (I think!?) I can’t remember the novel, of...

    Poul Anderson SF recommendations?

    I've read, and enjoyed Tau Zero and The Enemy Stars, but many people know him more for his fantasy. But what other hard SF works of his are worth hunting out?

    The Enemy Stars by Poul Anderson (1959)

    4 men are signed up for a mission aboard a ship destined for Alpha Crucis. The ship, called the Southern Cross, is already in deep space but there is a device to transport them instantly to wherever the ship is, kind of like Star Trek's Teleporters. Then there is an error in the ship's...

    Poul Anderson Short Story

    I'm looking for a short story by Poul Anderson that was referenced in a page at TVTropes. Here's the description: "There is a Poul Anderson short story in which a white-collar worker has his soul switched with a Conan-esque barbarian warlord. In the end, the goddess that switched them offers...

    Tau Zero by Poul Anderson

    Poul Anderson was one of the most productive SFF writers of the second half of the last century, publishing about a hundred books and winning seven Hugo and three Nebula awards. His first book was published in 1953 and his last fifty years later, two years after his death. Tau Zero was published...

    Poul Anderson. Where to start?

    Well, I've been intending to give Poul Anderson's work a try for some time now. However, having looked over his whopping body of work I'm not sure where to start. I've been looking at Tau Zero and The Broken Sword, simply because the first made it into the SF Masterworks series, and the...

    The Enemy Stars by Poul Anderson

    Poul Anderson is one of the "greats" of SF so I looked forward to re-reading this novel. Somewhat to my surprise, I was unable to recall anything about it as I read it, but at least that meant I could enjoy it without knowing the outcome! First published in 1958, 'The Enemy Stars' was slightly...

    "The Broken Sword" by Poul Anderson

    I've just finished this book and, I must say, am well impressed with it. One of the best fantasy stories I have read and I wonder why there aren't more out there like it. Ok, there probably are, I just don't know about them... My only criticism is that the ending was rather abrubt, almost...

    BOOK REVIEWS: The Broken Sword, and Kingdoms of Elfin

    TWO CLASSIC TALES OF FAERIE -- ANDERSON'S THE BROKEN SWORD, AND WARNER'S KINGDOMS OF ELFIN I thought it might be a good idea to review these two books together, since they are both about the denizens of Faerie, are in no way influenced by Tolkien’s conception of elves (although Anderson...

    Poul Anderson

    Poul Anderson (1926 - 2001) was one of the Golden Age greats. He was a prolific writer, and based on the fact the few novels and stories I've read are from various stages of his career, he was probably pretty consistent too. He was equally adept at hard sf, fantasy and a blend of the two...
