Baker & Taylor
Four science fiction stories describe Dominic Flandry's exploits as he thwarts an alien race's efforts to conquer planets within the Terran Empire, and his midlife reflections on the Empire as it heads to civil war due to corruption.

Simon and Schuster
Three novels and three novellas together for the first time in volume six of multiple Hugo- and Nebula-award-winning Poul Anderson’s Technic Civilization science fiction adventure epic. In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one secret agent stands ready with the grit and wits to save a corrupt empire by hook or by crook.

In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one man exists who can save his empire—and civilization itself—by hook or by crook, whether his “betters” appreciate his efforts or not. Flandry is both a James Bond style agent of empire, and agent-provocateur of change. Flandry is a heroic but tragic figure: a man who knows too much history, who knows that battle and scheme as he will the Long Night of Empire is approaching. If that darkness is not to fall in his own lifetime, must do what he can. And anyone, human or alien, who gets in his way, will most definitely regret it. 

Contains three complete Flandry novels collected in one volume for the first time:  The Plague of Masters, Go Home, Hunters of the Sky Cave and A Knight of Ghosts and Shadows.  This is the sixth entry in the seven-volume complete cycle of The Technic Civilization Saga.
