Sir Dominic Flandry is now an Admiral, but takes little joy in his new rank. He sees the rot in the Terran Empire on every hand and knows that the Long Night will inevitably fall upon the galaxy. His consolation is that measures he has taken while doing what he can to postpone the Empire's final collapse may shorten the coming galactic dark age and hasten the rise of a new interstellar civilization. In the meantime, he'll enjoy the comforts of a decadent civilization - and he'll always be ready for one more battle against the Empire's enemies. This concluding volume of "The Technic Civilization Saga" includes two, full-length novels ("A Stone in Heaven" & "The Game of Empire"), plus three novellas and a novelette set in the time of the Long Night and the renaissance of civilization which followed it.
