Summary (From the publisher):

Breathtaking space adventure by a master of interplanetary science fiction. Including two complete novels, one of them a Hugo Award-winner.

The Planet Explorer: As humans spread throughout the galaxy, thousands of planets have been colonized. Often, the colonists discover too late that an apparently hospitable planet conceals a terrible danger to their survival. The fate of these colonies scattered across the galaxy rests with one man, whose own fate is to race forever against looming interstellar disaster.

The Forgotten Planet: A ship is marooned on a planet whose existence has been mislaid by the galactic bureaucracy. And the planet's ecology has gone wild, breeding deadly giant insects. The ship's crew and passengers have no hope of rescue. Can they and their descendents survive? Tune in next millennium.

Plus more exciting adventures of men and women against the hostile stars
