"Murray Leinster was not only a very good writer, he was a pioneer. . . . The wondrous thing about his work is that those great, trend-setting stories read as fresh and timely today as they did all those years ago." In the first novel, "The Planet Explorer", the fate of the colonies scattered across the galaxy rests with one man, who races against the looming interstellar disaster. And in "The Forgotton Planet" a ship is marooned on a planet whose ecology has gone wild.
