Christopher Anvil was a frequent and popular contributor to the prominent science fiction magazine, Analog, where he frequently rated high in reader polls and had several stories nominated for Hugo and Nebula awards. He, like Keith Laumer, has a rare ability to blend fast-paced action with sardonic humour. Pandora's Legions, Interstellar Patrol, Interstellar Patrol II: The Federation of Humans, and The Problem with Aliens were his earlier Baen works. Strangers in Paradise, Warlord's World, The Steel, the Mist, and the Flaming Sun, and The Day the Machines Stopped are among his other works.
