In his long and fabulous career as the Captain Hornblower of space, John Grimes was to experience many strange things, rising through the ranks of the Interstellar Federation from triumphs to disaster, and ultimately becoming the most famous of the Rim Runners, far out along the edge of the Milky Way.
But there was a period when Grimes fell between one cosmic empire and another, on his own, commander only of a single deep-space pinnace and looking for work.
And that was when he became a god! He thought he was just doing a mailman's job, but the price of the postage turned out to be divinity—with a lovely nude postmistress certified for a goddess!
It's a new far-space novel by A. Bertram Chandler and one of his best!
