Monsters in Orbit / The World Between and other stories
Monsters in Orbit / The World Between and other stories Author:Jack Vance Monsters in Orbit is a fixup novel based on two 1952 novellas from Thrilling Wonder Stories: "Abercrombie Station" and "Cholwell's Chickens". — The heroine is Jean Parlier: beautiful, charismatic, clever, and more than a little mercenary. She is not what you would call a "nice girl," but she is the sort of girl to whom adventures happen. Therefor... more »e, she is the sort of girl we like to read about. In the first half of the novel, Jean goes in search of a rich husband on a rather bizarre space station. In the second half, she returns to the planet of her birth, where she runs afowl (no, that is not a misspelling!) of some different biological horrors.
The World Between is a collection of five stories: The World Between, The Moon Moth, Brain of the Galaxy, The Devil on Salvation Bluff, and The Men Return.« less
