Series: John Grimes: Far Traveller Couriers

Summary (From the publisher):

Though starship captain John Grimes is no longer part of the Terran military, his adventures are just beginning. At the galaxy's rim, where pioneer colonies and parallel dimensions overlap, a starship captain must be prepared for adventure in all possible worlds.

Star Courier - Grimes' next job has him ferrying attractive postmistress Tamara Haverstock and her cargo of mail. An easy run until Grimes' ship encounters the insectoid Shaara. The mail must go through, but does that require that a mail carrier be worshipped as a god?

To Keep the Ship - Financial necessity leads Grimes to take on a dubious job which lands him in mortal danger on a ship infested by tiny woman-like creatures with a ravenous appetite who want to eat him up - literally.

Matilda's Stepchildren - Transporting a muckraking reporter to the pleasure planet of New Venusburg sounded enticing to Grimes, but the spectator spots of the deprived rich are a life-nad-death matter, possibly including (if he's lucky) Grimes' life.

Star Loot - In another financial jam, Grimes must lead a fleet of privateers - or, as most of the rim worlds name them, space pirates. Grimes had never anticipated being the terror of the spaceways as part of his job description.
