There was Joachim, captain of the Nomad star ship Peregrine, and ruler of the Peregrine clan. There were also all the ship?s officers and crew and their entire families. Bound to no world, the better part of their lives spent on the great ships, the Nomads were something like the gypsies who once roamed the lands of Earth, and something like the Vikings who once fared Earth?s seas - but different from any human society known before. Once a year, the captains of the Nomad ships met at their secret planet called Rendezvous, where the bylaws and intricate agreements of Nomad society were made and enforced. And this year, Peregrine Joachim had a bombshell to toss into the midst of his colleagues. Five Nomad ships had disappeared, vanished completely in an uninhabited area of space. It appeared to be no accident! There was Trevelyan Micah of Earth?s co-ordinating service, the integrating core of galactic civilization, that vast federation of planets. To Micah, the Nomads were an irresponsible, disruptive influence that had to be brought into line. From all over the galaxy, information poured into civilization?s overloaded computers, already years behind in co-ordinating data. But now a directive had been given to Micah: investigate the fact that similar flora and fauna had been found on numerous planets within an area where such life forms could not have arisen by themselves. Then, contact the Nomads who have lost ships in the same area to investigate. There was Sean of the Peregrines, young in years, but old in the bitterness of losing a wife who could not endure Nomad life. And, there on Rendezvous, he met the strange and lovely Ilaloa, who was either not quite human or a little more than human; different humans would draw different opinions. Thus began the quest, part of the answer to which both Trevelyan Micah and Joachim suspected - that unknown, intelligent, heretofore unsuspected life-forms were moving purposefully toward the galaxy, expanding toward human civilization. For the Nomads, there was the fear of being caught between civilization and the unknown aliens; for Earth, there was the fear of repeating all the old blunders in history, leading to needless conflict and destruction. Neither wanted war - either with each other or with the unknown culture they sought to uncover. Here is a tale of a tomorrow distant in time, where the outreach of humanity has only made men realize how vast is space and how small the area of their knowledge and control projects. For although technology had reached undreamed of heights, men and women still loved, hoped, feared and hated even as their ancestors of the twentieth century had.… (mer)

Decent 1950s SF by good author. Space gypsies before space gypsies were cool. This novel was short and had a weak ending but it was early days for SF novels and for this author. Initial ideas were good and new for the 50s. Anderson is not my favorite SF author but he has turned out many good books. He has won Hugo, Nebula and several other writing awards for his later works.

Gypsies in space discover odd danger. ( )

Anderson in his introduction to this version explains it is an early story set in a universe he later abandoned. Th only other piece I recall as of now set in this universe is the short story "The Pirate" which I like very much. This one is much sadder. it was originally published in 1956 and republished in this edition in 1978. In some ways I think it could fit better in the typical sf of 1978. Like the wave of sf including the later Andre Norton, and Ursula LeGuin among others, it involves conflict between a human highly technological culture and an alien culture which relies more on telepathy and a union with nature. However, in those other writers the techie culture is "bad" and the natural one is "good" whereas here, the natural one, though sympathetically described, is "bad" and the techies, who are the primary pov characters, are "good." In a way, it reminds me of Anderson's later "Queen of Air and Darkness:" though there the alien "natural" culture is largely an illusion, while here it is real. Spoiler Warning: In this story the central human culture is policed by the "Cordys" -- a space patrol relying more on analyzing information than on blasters. On the fringes of this culture are the Nomads, humans who live all their lives on their ships, trading with planets and providing various services to earn their way. The Nomad culture is very distinctive (one rule is that they must marry people from other Nomad ships, to prevent inbreeding, and only rare marry with outsiders.) The Peregrine is one of those ships. Its captain Joachim comes to a meeting of captains on their base world Rendezvous and points out that several of their ships have gone missing in a specific part of space, and he is going to investigate. Meanwhile the Cordy information analysis has noticed the same phenomenon and a Cordy agent, Micah, manages to get aboard the ship; so does an alien native woman(Ilaloa) from Rendezvous who has a love affair with a Nomad, Sean. On another planet (ruled by former Nomads who turned conquerors) she claims to have contacted the mind of an alien supposedly from those who were taking the ships. When Peregrine goes to the region she identifies as the aliens' home, they end up being pushed to land on a planet whose people, the Alori, are the "nature" based culture mentioned above, They are also the same race as Ilaloa, who confesses to leading the Peregrine there so the crew should be captured. The Alori explain that they have captured the earlier Nomad ships (and others) and adapted the crews to be agents of the Alori; ultimately they intend to convert the entire human race to their ways as they believe their own culture could not survive human domination. However, Ilaloa genuinely loves Sean, and he persuades her to help Joachim, Micah, his Nomad wife Nicky and a picked crew capture one of the Peregrine's spaceboats (now stored on the Alori planet) , so they can return to the Peregrine (left empty in orbit) and escape, The plan works, thanks largely to Ilaloa, but in escaping, the humans must shoot down another spaceboat filled with pursuing Alori. The shooting breaks Ilaloa's heart so she throws herself out of the escaping boat. ( )

An odd book, about starfaring people who meet an alien culture very different from their own. It started slow, but built up into an interesting mystery. Unfortunately, once you meet the alien "menace" they turn out to be intergalactic hippies who want to get back to nature, and are appalled by man's mechanical nature. The ending is a non-ending, rushed and unsatisfying. ( )
