A. Bertram Chandler Novels--Recommendations?

Can anybody recommend a good place to start in A. Bertram Chandler’s John Grimes series?

Thank you

Not one recommendation? :eek:

I’ve read Chandler, but not the Grimes stories, and what I have read left so small an impression that I can neither recall titles nor plots. Not a good sign.

I’d go with the oldest book you can find first. I think “The Rim of Space” was the first major one. There are two major phases to Grimes’ career - in the Survey Service, and when he goes off to the Rim. Chandler filled in parts of his career in the later books - the earlier ones are a bit more fun. When you read a couple you can decide which series you like best.
