Book Description

April 30 2009 0559060084 978-0559060083

An impulsive action, on his part? Hardly. Bron Hoddan went to the ship that landed on his native planet of Zan, the ship whose heartless crew was intent on lining up all his relatives for execution . . . and he stowed away.

Bron had planned it all long before, hoping to escape to the planet Walden, a place of wealth and peace where he might have a chance to prove himself as an electrical engineer, then find the beautiful wife of his dreams . . .

And compared with Zan, home of space pirates, Walden turns out to be a fine place indeed, where he quickly establishes himself with his brilliant work . . .

Until suddenly the police broke down his door!

Will Jenkins (1896-1975), writing as Murray Leinster, was called the Dean of Science Fiction, and was author of such popular novels as Timeslip! He won the Hugo award for 1956 novelette "Exploration Team."

5.0 out of 5 stars Pirates of Ersatz Nov. 21 2012
By Carey E. Dorset - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great story for old time sci fi fans. Murray Leinster was one of the masters of the 50s and 60s. The only hitch I found was in looking for the original Pirates of Zan. I initially found this one, and bought it, but wasn't sure if it was the same story, so bought Pirates of Zan as well. It was the same story, so get one or the other, but not both.

Amusing, fun, and very good for children. No profanity, violence or dumb romance. Humour at every turn. Nothing but time between this and a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pirates at their best! March 17 2012
By Kenneth D. Johns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Rollicking excitement along with neverending bloodless mayhem and treachery. If you love adventure, pirates, comedy, science fiction and just darn good writing, then you will love this book! It has everything, love, romance and battles in space. I've owned a copy of this book for more years than I wish to think about and it still thrills me every time I pick it up and dive into some of the best writing ever produced. The money you spend for this book will be some of the best spent money of your life!

Good humorous yarn. Predictable plot, but enjoyable. I had forgotten how enjoyable Murray Leinster Stories Were. You Can't go wrong On This One.
