I remeber reading a book as a young boy and I'd like to get some help in finding it again.
As i recall it was a collection of short stories.
One of the stories involved a duel between two people. One was armed with a crossbow and the other a blaster. The whole story was more or less about the guy with the crossbow, on how he prepared himself and tracked his "prey" (the other duelist) But in the end he got shot and killed by the other guy with the blaster.
Another story in this collection was a man that was on a planet, I can't remember how he got there but i do remember the text describing a creature similar to a giant slug that was peaceful. And suddenly small butterfly shaped creatures landed on it. As more and more of these creatures landed on it it started to wriggle in pain and eventually the man understood that teh butterfly creatures was eating it alive until they flew away and all that was left was a skeleton.
Third story i remember was about a boy that went to school. And in this school they used teleporters. but the boy didn't want to use it as he didn't like the idea of being dissasembled to molecules and then put back together again.
Does anyone know which book it is? I remember spaceships on the cover with one of them being painted in tigerstripes.
