Publisher's Blurb
When the star Zarathustra went nova, the desperate survivors spread out in all directions. Those that found habitable worlds were few, and after hundreds of years the Zarathustra Refugee Planets were either forgotten or in quarantine.

Colonising a new planet requires much more than just settling on a newly discovered island of Old Earth. New planets were different in thousands of ways - any of those differences could mean death and disaster to a human settlement.

Now published in one volume, these brilliant novels once again show John Brunner to be a true master of science fiction writing.
