The Best of Jack Vance by Jack Vance
a short story about a voyage into deep outer space. The cadets are headed to mars on a space clipper. The captain Henry Belt is a no nonsense chap, who desires to die in space; so he hands the reign to his cadets to sail on through the outer limits of space. Will they get home? The story was a keen observation of Sailors and Captains, and the relationship between the two. I really enjoyed the story.
