He was looking for a privacy his strange personality needed. And never quite seemed to achieve it. All his efforts were, somehow great triumphs of the race, and great failures for him!

Tight Squeeze

by Dean Ing

He knew the theory of repairing the gizmo all right. He had that nicely taped. But there was the little matter of threading a wire through a too-small hole while under zero-g, and working in a spacesuit!

Criminal Negligence

by Jesse Francis McComas

Somebody was going to have to be left behind ... and who it would be was perfectly obvious....

Cubs of the Wolf

by Raymond Fisher Jones

It may be that there is a weapon that, from the viewpoint of the one it's used on, is worse than lethal. You might say that death multiplies you by zero; what would multiplication by minus one do?

The Hoofer

by Walter M. Miller

A space rover has no business with a family. But what can a man in the full vigor of youth do--if his heart cries out for a home?

The Dictator

by Stephen Marlowe

Ellaby's society was a perfect democracy, where all men were equal. But some still wanted more personal attention, and they got it, like— The Dictator.
