read "Pandora's Planet" I have reread the book about once
a year. It is a fun, light hearted book about what
happens when the dumb aliens try to conquer Earth. The
dumb aliens are, in today's politically correct words,
mentally challenged. A large part of the story is how
humans, as they expand out into the Centran Empire,
affect the great empire. (Hint: there is a lot of chaos.)
"Pandora's Legions" includes the all of the stories
written in the Centran Empire Universe. The original story
was "Pandora's Planet" which was published in Astounding
back in September of 1956. Then a book also titled
"Pandora's Planet" came out 1972. This was the further
adventures of our Centran hero Klide Horsip as he tries to
deal with all the varieties of human philosophies being
implemented on various Centran planets.
Also in the same setting were three stories about
a human named John Towers, who went around helping the
Centran military out of very nasty situations. These three
stories had only been published in Analog. Of these three
my favorite was "Trap" which dealt with the problem of a
race which could teleport. And they could teleport to any
place where an object they had touched was located.
There is also one more story about a Centran
psychologist and how he deals his patients.
It is nice to have all the Centran stories together.
Treat yourself to a couple of hours of enjoyable reading.
