The Compleat McAndrew
the space adventures of Arthur Morton McAndrew, space-time expert and
scientist extraordinaire, and his long-suffering companion, spaceship
skipper Jeanie Roker. Jeanie first met McAndrew on a routine run to
Titan and quickly learned he was a genius of the caliber of Newton or
Einstein. When McAndrew invented a space drive that let frail humans
survive hundreds of gravities of acceleration, he disappeared while
testing it, and Jeanie had to find him, using a trail of cryptic
messages he had left behind.
was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, in spite of the gray hairs
that Jeanie began accumulating as a result of McAndrew's impractical
nature and his talent for getting himself into trouble with much more
practical villains, such as...
- A mass-murderer of several million people
- A highly-placed government official whose life McAndrew
saved, but in an embarrassing way, and who consequently wants to kill
both him and Jeanie
- The ruler of a slower-than-light spaceship that left Earth
a long time ago, giving it time to develop some very strange customs by
the time McAndrew and Jeanie visited it.
And there are still more adventures of this spacegoing odd couple in "The Compleat McAndrew."
