The Dumarest series lasted about 30 books, and I would recommend most of the early ones (particularly the Ace-Doubles) as good reading. If you're not familiar with the premise, Earl Dumarest was born on Earth, but wandered so far from it in a crowded galaxy that people in the region he is currently in think that Earth is but a legend, like "El Dorado." (The Traveller gaming system, with High and Low Passage, quicktime and basic, is loosely based on the very populated galaxy Dumarest travels in.) He picks up friends and enemies, and occaisionally a clue pointing towards Earth.
Earth is Heaven - #27 in the series. All the signals seemed set at "go." Earl Dumarest had found people who believed in the legendary Earth. He had found the coordinates of the Sun and its attendant planets. And he would have a starship with a faithful crew for whom Earth was the paradise of their dreams. Before he could reach that ideal moment, Dumarest would have to fight his way out of the Cyclan's master trap as well as unravel a very tricky web of planetary conspiracy. Only if he could achieve those desperate goals would he be able to set off on what he hoped would be the final lap of his lifelong galactic trek. If Earth was Heaven, then the road there was surely hell itself...
