THE REBEL WORLDS + A KNIGHT OF GHOSTS AND SHADOWS
(reprint) omnibus: 1982
Omnibus of 2 "Flandry" novels: THE REBEL WORLDS (1969) + A KNIGHT OF GHOSTS AND SHADOWS (1975.) The circle of artwork in the center of cover is cropped/color-shifted from Gene Szafran's cover for the Signet paperback first in 1975.
The Rebel Worlds: Admiral Hugh McCormac, the Empire's top naval strategist, is forced into rebellion, and Dominic Flandry is sent to stop the rebellion for the Empire he secretly despises. One little problem: they both loved the same woman - Kathryn. #3 in series order (Flandry is a captain.) This is the first of 2 novels to take place on the planet Aeneas (with Flandry the focus of this one, and his enemy Aycharaych the antagonist in The Day of Their Return.) In my opinion, Flandry is the most interesting character that Poul Anderson has come up with, better even than the wily trader Nicholas van Rijn.
