Note: Originally published as 4 separate unrelated novelettes, which were rewritten for book publication, including merging the four protagonists in one man, Bordman of "Sand Doom". Two chapter titles in the resulting novel correspond to the original story titles ("Sand Doom" and "The Swamp Was Upside Down") while "Critical Difference" appears as "Solar Constant" and the Hugo award winning "Exploration Team" appears as "Combat Team". The two 1958 German titles are each an abridged half of the 'novel' and a different translation than the 1967 German edition
