The United States won its independence in 1776, and the world has never been the same since. What if Australia had followed suit? How would our world have been different? That's the theme that fascinated A. Bertram Chandler who saw, in the famous Ned Kelly, the possibility of an Australian Washington. For Ned Kelly was not just a lawless bushranger. He was a man of unusual imagination who created his own armor, gathered a band of Irish rebels, and took arms against the frontier law of old Australia. Now, by time machine and calculated interference, a certain 20th Century John Grimes goes back and alters history. Kelly survives! Utilizing the hidden discoveries of science, Kelly helps an Austrailian-Irish Republic rise from Down Under!

The bitter pill by A. Bertram Chandler( Book )

6 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Taut Story of Terrifying Credibility The Bitter Pill is a novel of the near future as seen from 1974, extrapolating contemporary political and sociological trends to develop with frightening plausibility to growing importance of youth as a political power. To Paul Clayton, obscure shipping clerk, his forty-fifth birthday was not an occasion for celebration. It meant the achievement of status of Senior Citizen, and with it several dubious privileges-not leas to of which was voluntary euthanasia, facilitated by the government issue suicide pill. Those who changed their minds, once they had broken the capsule containing the lethal pill, faced the prospect of forced labor camps in the Australian desert of the penal colony on Mars, where convicts toiled to make more space fit for Earth's over-spilling populations. Under the supervision of the corrupt and brutal Mars Corps, Clayton crosses paths again with others he once knew on distant Earth. They find themselves caught up on a maelstrom of terror and political intrigue
Star loot by A. Bertram Chandler( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In luck and out of luck, John Grimes was a living legend of the spaceways. He had been an officer of the service, he had been the victim of a mutiny, he had discovered lost worlds, he had served under strange masters and on strange ships, but he had never turned space pirate. Until this adventure. How it happened was a complex story to begin with, but typical Grimes luck. How he became the terror of the star lanes developed, as usual, from his own efforts to make an honest living and other's efforts to use him for devious diversions. This is the latest Grimes novel--a story of the loot of the stars, of how Grimes graduated from operator of a space courier ship to master of a fleet of dreaded carriers of the skull and crossbones!"--Back cover

7 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mannschenn Drive was the gateway to the stars, but it had one unfortunate side effect: Traveling faster than light, mankind reverted to the bestial form of his own legendary nightmare, the lycanthropic horror that the full moon once called forth from the soul's depths, now no longer howling at the moon but soaring far beyond it..."--Page [4] of cover

Dr. Henshaw had created what he thought was a time travel machine and he had sent guinea pigs through it. But now he needed a human guinea pig to test it with.

So Wilkinson agreed to the experiment. He stood in the white circle facing the machine as it began to gleam and spin, pulling him down through the tortuous coils of time

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!"--Back cover

To keep the ship by A. Bertram Chandler( Book )

6 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although this was a low point in the ever-changing space career of the legendary John Grimes, it was not without its surprising moments. Between jobs, between loyalties, Grimes was owner and pilot of a small auxiliary vessel whose principal oddity was that it was made of gold. But precious metal or not, Grimes was running errands with it. Until he fell into the clutches of terrorists. Susie and her comrades had a Cause and it was going to take all his efforts to keep the one thing he had to have--his ship. Especially since they left the ship infested with a constantly increasing horde of mini-Susies--vicious little homunculi that looked exactly like their sexy prototype except that they were hungry, sharp-toothed, and their only Cause was to eat Grimes alive!"--Back cover
