Publisher's Summary

Dragons? Fairies? Frog Princes? Sir Dominik Flandry? In a John Grimes Rim Adventure? Strange things happen out where the stellar medium grows thin, out where it is difficult to say if you remain within the galxay or you’re falling through the intergalactic void. Add to that strangeness an Outsider ship filled with technology so far in advance of the human as to appear magical, and the catalytic presence of Commodore John Grimes, and anything can happen - anything at all.

Further Steps toward the Rim

What did you like best about this story?

Seven short stories of John Grimes' escapades. With Good Intentions (1972), The Subtractor (1969), The Tin Messiah (1969), The Sleeping Beauty (1970), The Wandering Buoy (1970), The Mountain Movers (1971), Who You Know (1971). Having been in the military I can see many of these things happening to someone.
