Poul Anderson - Twilight ​World
"The ​time is shortly after the great nuclear spasm: in all the world there is nothing but ruin, famine, barbarism. Worst of all, residual radiation is causing an ever increasing rate of abnormal births. The human race is doomed to slow extinction, but among the ever increasing number of mutants a few are not less but more than what came before." And these. "An apocalyptic science fiction novel of post-World War Three and 'Tomorrow's Children' surviving on a planet devasted by nuclear bombs, and where the number of mutant children caused by radiation is constantly increasing." "Post-holocaust story. By an accident of genetics, the mutants became the precursors of a new master race."

Poul Anderson - A ​nagy keresztes hadjárat
Idegen ​űrhajó száll le Angliában a keresztes háborúk idején azzal a céllal, hogy a Föld lakosságát kiirtsák, a használhatóbbakat rabszolgasorba vessék, s a bolygót lakhatóvá tegyék egyre terjeszkedő fajuk számára. Mivel e világon középkori állapotokat találnak, gyanútlanul és hatalmuk tudatában gondatlanul viselkednek, és ez a vesztüket okozza. A keresztesek vezére válogatott lovagjaival rajtaüt az űrhajón, s a váratlan támadást siker koronázza. Az idegeneket kardélre hányják, csak egy foglyot hagynak életben, akit megfelelő módszerekkel kényszerítenek rá, hogy beavassa őket az űrhajó működésébe... És megindul a nagy keresztes hadjárat.

Poul Anderson - The ​Peregrine
A ​shocking report is delivered to the galactic Nomads at their annual meeting: "FIVE OF OUR WORLDS ARE MISSING!" A "world" is a gigantic starship, full of trade goods and family members; a man-made, self-sustaining city-state. The Nomads themselves were an unplanned by-product of man's conquest of the stars. They were the gypsies of the distant future, the restless rovers of outer space. To Joachim of the PEREGRINE, they represented a way of life to be dearly defended. Thus, it fell to him to make his own world-ship the bait in a cosmic trap.

Poul Anderson - Past ​Times
6 ​short time travel stories and a novella all of which avoid paradox with the plot device that traveling into the past is limited.

Poul Anderson - Brain ​Wave
For ​millions of years, the part of the galaxy containing our solar system has been moving through a vast force field that has been inhibiting certain electromagnetic and electrochemical processes and, thus, certain neurotic functions. When Earth escapes the inhibiting field, synapse speed immediately increases, causing a rise in intelligence, which results in a transfigured humanity reaching for the stars, leaving behind our earth to the less intelligent humans and animal life-forms. This is a transcendent look at the possible effects of enhanced intelligence on our planet.

Poul Anderson - Karen Anderson - Dahut
For ​sixteen years Gratillonius has been the king of Ys, a position he has used to bring the once-teetering city-state back to stability as the Roman Empire continues to collapse around it. Rome would prefer a more malleable leader in Gratillonius’s place and makes no secret of it. As pressure from Roman leadership increases, Gratillonius must also contend with Niall maqq Echach, the leader of Northern Ireland who holds the Ysan king responsible for the death of his son. Compounding these complications is the ever-present threat of retribution by the Ysan gods, should the kingdom’s leadership make a misstep. But perhaps the greatest danger of all is unfolding from within Gratillonius’s own household, where, following the death of one of his nine wives, the gods have named an unsettling replacement: Dahut, Gratillonius’s own daughter. As treachery mounts from within and without, Gratillonius must hold to his principles in defiance of the gods while still protecting Ys from the destruction closing in on all sides.

Poul Anderson - Hrolf ​Kraki's Saga
Poul ​Anderson has long been known for his love affair with the legends and myths of the great Norse heroes. Coordinating, translating, re-telling the scattered heroic literature could only be the work of a scholar and a lover of the genre. That Mr. Anderson also happens to be a talented writer is our great good luck. Ballantine Books Adult Fantasy Series is proud to present HROLF KRAKI'S SAGA, a keening, blood-rimed tale of men who walked like gods.

Poul Anderson - War ​of the Gods
The ​story of the great King Hadding is one of the darkest and most violent to come down to us from the old North. Hadding was raised by giants far from his rightful throng, as his father, a Danish King, was slain shortly after Hadding's birth. But the times comes when Hadding feels he must reclaim his legitimate place in the land of the old North. He must endure ferocious battles, the charms of voluptuous Valkyries, and a War of the Gods to rival Armageddon.

Poul Anderson - The ​Golden Horn
The ​saga of Harald Harrede. "He was a huge man, fully seven feet tall and no one could stand before him in battle or sport...His manner was often curt and haughty, though he know how to win to him those whom he liked...and he could never hear enough of far lands." "So wide a world and so short a span to wander it!"

Poul Anderson - The ​Night Face
Also ​published as Let the Spacemen Beware! The men on the spaceship Quetzal had a mission to perform, but everything indicated it would be a simple matter to set up a refueling station on the planet Gwydion. Advance explorations had already determined that the inhabitants of Gwydion were few in number and thouroughly amiable in their ways. In fact, such concepts as anger, thievery, murder and warfare did not exist for them. All that remained for the Quetzal was to find a suitable site and cement friendly relations. But with the change of season and the bursting of the countryside into blossom, strange things began to happen. There was talk of a mysterious cycle and a day of danger. What was the secret the Gwydionites themselves dared not mention? How would it affect their spacemen visitors?

Poul Anderson - Operation ​Chaos
In ​a war waged against Black Magic, the fact that Steve is a werewolf and his wife is a highly skilled witch is not unusual. But their adventures prove very unusual, even for their world, when they are given the task of neutralizing an enemy's ultimate weapon - the world's most powerful demon.

Poul Anderson - Tűzkorszak
Az ​Istár bolygónak három napja van: Bel, az "igazi" nap, az Életadó; Ea, a Társ, amely felmelegíti az istári nyarakat és Anu, a Démon Nap. Anu többnyire oly távol jár, hogy csupán egy fényfoltnak látszik az istári égen. Ám minden ezer évben közel jön, s ez a korszak az, amikor a barbároknak el kell menekülniük a felperzselt földekről, és ilyenkor civilizációk hullanak a porba. A bennszülöttek Tűzkorszaknak nevezik ezt az időszakot. Valahányszor beköszöntött, kultúrák pusztulását jelentette. Ez alkalommal azonban minden más - mivel megjelentek a bolygón az emberek, s elhozták magukkal mágikus technológiájukat. A baj csak az, hogy az embereknek is meg kell vívniuk saját háborújukat, úrrá lenni saját Tűzkorszakuk felett...

Poul Anderson - Time ​Patrolman
An ​agent of the Time Patrol tries to defeat the plot of a mysterious group of criminals to change the course of history

Poul Anderson - Időjárőr
A ​maga nemében egyedülálló kötet a múltat - ha nem is a nagyon távoli múltat - idézi. Első magyar nyelvű kiadása a bezúzás sorsára jutott, pedig csak annyi volt a vétke, hogy más nézőpontból ábrázolta a ma, a tegnap és a holnap dolgait. Ebben a kötetben a legendás ciklus frissebb darabjai kaptak helyet: paradoxonok, rejtelmek és kalandok olyan idővonalakról, melyek összességét talán csak a Szolgálat legendás ügynökei képesek áttekinteni.

Poul Anderson - Időjárőr ​2. - Őrjárat a múltban
Manse ​Everard és társai indulnak újabb küldetésekre e kötetben, melynek elbeszéléseit Anderson, az SF nagy öregje a műfaj sokadik megújulásával párhuzamosan, a 70-es évek közepétől vetette papírra. A múlt és a jelen rejtelmeit villantja fel ismét a klasszikus művek modorában, olyan utakat kijelölve, melyeket csak a messzi jövendő emberfeletti lényei, a danelliánok remélhetnek végigjárni - ám a rettenthetetlen időjárőrök segítségének olykor még ők is hasznát látják...

Poul Anderson - Tomboló ​vihar
Légy ​üdvözölve Puck és Caliban, Oberon és Titánia, Ariel és Neptun világán, a varázslatos Tündérföldön, ahol egyetlen éjszaka évszázadokig tart, s ahol az arany egy tündér szemének villanására azonnal értéktelen salakká változik. Ám a sötét felhők már tornyosulnak Tündérföld fölött, hatalmas vihar készülődik, amely elpusztít mindent. Oliver Cromwell és puritán seregei vérbe és tűzbe borítják ezt a csodálatos birodalmat, s örökre el akarják törölni a Föld színéről. Senki nincs, ki megállíthatná őket?

Poul Anderson - The ​Avatar
In ​the immeasurable past a mysterious alien race known as The Others left mankind a challenging legacy, a 'gate' to the unexplored reaches of the stars. Humanity has utilized the gate to painstakingly colonize the Phoebus star system but has left the rest of the galaxy unexplored. In the midst of turbulent political upheaval on Earth, the exploratory ship Emissary leaves through the gate on a voyage of discovery. When the Emissary returns ahead of schedule the Social Welfare Party on Earth impounds the ship and imprisons its crew - and forbids all future space exploration. Dan Broderson, an entrepreneur and adventurer, commandeers a commercial spaceship from his own company and travels to Earth to find the Emissary. He locates the ship, confounds its captors and rescues some of the explorers, including the first alien to visit the solar system. But Broderson has to flee through the gate unprepared, to become a wanderer among the stars in search of The Others. They alone have the knowledge that will enable his ship to return home.

Poul Anderson - World ​without Stars
A ​normal man would have lain down and died, but to Hugh Valland the task before him seemed simple enough. It was necessary to organize a revolution by a group of primitives against their telepathic overlords; build with the help of those same primitives a spaceship virtually from scratch; contact, via that spaceship, a third group of aliens, and enlist their aid in returning home across the galactic abyss. At worst it would take a lifetime...and Valland's one true love, Mary O'Meara was waiting.

Poul Anderson - Karen Anderson - Roma ​Mater
In ​the waning days of the Roman Empire, Magnus Maximus sends his prefect Gratillonius to western Gaul and the faraway land of Ys, a place shrouded in legend and ruled by a cruel and tyrannical king. When the sovereign challenges Gratillonius to a duel, the envoy from Rome emerges victorious and claims the throne as the new king of Ys, inheriting a land whose religion, culture, and history are entirely foreign. He also gains the former king’s nine wives, the Gallicenae, a powerful group of women to whom he must appear equally devoted despite his growing feelings for one in particular. As he adjusts to his new role as ruler of Ys, Gratillonius must fight to keep his strange new country on its feet while the rest of the Roman Empire begins to crumble around him.

Poul Anderson - The ​Fleet of Stars
In ​Fleet of Stars, Poul Anderson brings back the wildly colorful Anson Guthrie, his iconoclastic hero from Harvest of Stars. The staid, somber people of Earth are not only dependent on technology, they are all but ruled by machine intelligence. Suspecting a conspiracy to suppress humankind's last vestiges of freedom, Guthrie begins a dangerous journey across the realm of the comets, the asteroids, and the stars themselves--willing to risk his life to preserve humanity's ability to roam the universe.

Poul Anderson - Karen Anderson - The ​Dog and the Wolf

Poul Anderson - The ​Star Fox
Earthmen ​and Aleriona have met in space and neither side can afford to let the other get too strong. The Aleriona have captured the human outpost, New Europe, and claim that all the inhabitants were killed. The World Federation on Earth seems committed to peace at any price, but there are those, and ex-navy Captain Gunnar Heim is one of them, who know that appeasement will only lead to further Alerion encroachment, and he passionately believes that there must be a showdown now, before it is too late. Heim and his crew of volunteers take off from Earth in the Star Fox and start to fit out for their hit-and-run battle.

Poul Anderson - Majd ​ha az Orion fölszáll
A ​XXI. században vagyunk, egy borzalmas, világpusztító nukleáris háború után, amikor városok, civilizációk, kultúrák romjain épül újjá egy középkori szintre visszasüllyedt emberi életforma. Monumentális tablók bontakoznak ki szemük előtt, az egykori Amerika, Franciaország, Anglia és Oroszország tájai zord vidékké változtak, ahol az emberek szinte mit sem tanultak a tragédiából: vallási háborúk, politikai belharcok, összeesküvések, titkos fegyverkezési hajszák dúlnak, s csak egyedül Csillaghon, az egykori Európa fölött lebegő űrállomás próbál valamiféle kontrollt gyakorolni a földi élet fölött. Iern és Ronica lázadást szerveznek a különböző politikai Páholyok és a velük titokban szövetkező Csillaghon ellen, hogy végre békét hozzanak a Földre. A széles, epikus hömpölygésű sci-fi eposz sajátos ötvözetét adja a kultúrhistóriai utalásokban gazdag, képzeletbeli történelmi regényeknek és a fantasyk elemeit is felhasználó modern antiutópiáknak.

Poul Anderson - Homeward ​and Beyond
Nine ​incredible stories of science fiction adventure.

Poul Anderson - The ​Horn of Time

Poul Anderson explores the future of this blood-chilling narrative that spins from Earth to distant galaxies as he foretells the ultimate destiny of mankind.

Poul Anderson - The ​Enemy Stars
The ​black star was not part of Creation. It was a fossil sun, left over from a Universe that had died before this one was born, circled by an iron tomb that had once been a planet. When the black star called, four men went to the galaxy's edge. Only one came back. But he did not come back alone...

Poul Anderson - The ​Dancer From Atlantis
An ​experiment in the future gone awry...and Duncan Reid, American architect of the 20th century, came out of unconciousness to find himself hopelessly marooned in the far distant past. Bound to him were three of the strangest humans he had ever encountered... a medieval Russian, and a fourth-century Hun, and a sacred priestess who worshiped him as a god. And all shared the same fate--pulled through a hole in time to a present which was ancient history. Together the quartet formed a strange alliance which none dared break. For not only were their own futures at stake... but the very future of the world they had found....
