Frigid Fracas

by Mack Reynolds

In any status-hungry culture, the level a man is assigned depends on what people think he is—not on what he is. And that, of course, means that only the deliberately phony has real status!

Breaking Point

by James Edwin Gunn

The ship was proof against any test, but the men inside her could be strained and warped, individually and horribly. Unfortunately, while the men knew that, they couldn't really believe it. The Aliens could--and...

The Devolutionist

by Homer Eon Flint

All told, this particular session covered a good many hours. The four kept up a more or less connected mental conversation with each other as they went along, except, of course, when the events became too exciting....

The Antique Ring

Sense from Thought Divide

by Mark Irvin Clifton

What is a "phony"? Someone who believes he can do X, when he can't, however sincerely he believes it? Or someone who can do X, believes he can't, and believes he is pretending he can?

The Devil in Manuscript

Blind Man's Lantern

by Allen Kim Lang

Successful colonies among the stars require interstellar ships—but they require, also, a very special kind of man. A kind you might not think to look for "Blind Man's Lantern".

The Jameson Satellite

by Neil Ronald Jones

The mammoths of the ancient world have been wonderfully preserved in the ice of Siberia. The cold, only a few miles out in space, will be far more intense than in the polar regions and its power of preserving...

The Dope on Mars

by John Michael Sharkey

Somebody had to get the human angle on this trip ... but what was humane about sending me?

The Bell Tone

by Edmund H. Leftwich

It is no use. It's too late. The earth--I must dig--alone.

Doctor Wortle's School

The Story of a Stuffed Elephant

by Laura Lee Hope

From the "Make-Believe Stories": "Oh, how large he is!" "Isn't he? And such wonderfully strong legs!" "See his trunk, too! Isn't it cute! And he is well stuffed! This is really one of the best toys that ever...

Brigands of the Moon

by Raymond King Cummings

Gregg Haljan was aware that there was a certain danger in having the giant spaceship Planetara stop off at the moon to pick up Grantline's special cargo of moon ore. For that rare metal--invaluable in keeping...

See?

by Edward G. Robles

Seeing things? Don't go to an analyst—see the Commission— if it doesn't find you first!

My Kinsman, Major Molineux

Test Rocket!

by Jack Douglas

It's amazing how much you can learn about absolute strangers if you just stop to think about the kind of an animal they'll put in a ...

Student Body

by Floyd L. Wallace

When a really infallible scientific bureau makes a drastically serious error, the data must be wrong ... but wrong in what way?

Master of the Moondog

by Stanley Mullen

Idiotic pets rate idiotic masters. Tod Denver and Charley, the moondog, made ideal companions as they set a zigzag course for the Martian diggings—paradise for fools.

Disturbing Sun

by Richard Shirley Richardson

This, be it understood, is fiction--nothing but fiction--and not, under any circumstances, to be considered as having any truth whatever to it. It's obviously utterly impossible... isn't it?

Lease to Doomsday

by Lee Archer

The twins were a rare team indeed. They wanted to build a printing plant on a garbage dump. When Muldoon asked them why, their answer was entirely logical: ''Because we live here.''
