Summary (From the publisher):

Ranging from the 20th Century to the 31st, these interconnected stories trace Man's expansion and colonization throughout the galaxy...

Becalmed in Hell: Howie's spaceship had a malfunction...but it might be only psychosomatic!

Wait it Out: He was trapped on Pluto...and all his assets were frozen!

The Borderland of Sol: Forward possessed the ultimate weapon...but no one would ever see it!

The Jigsaw Man: The organ banks want you...now!

Cloak of Anarchy: They were free to be anything but violent...but that wasn't enough!
