'Alternate Orbits' is an A. Betram Chandler 'John Grimes' book chronologically close to the end of the long running saga.

The technical term for what this novel does is 'jumping the shark'.

Chandler wrote himself into the book along with a number of other famous fictional characters (in an alternate universe sequence).

This isn't as bad as it could have been. He also sets a good deal of the book on a real sea going ship rather than in space, so we get to see Grimes as a real mariner.
