Love Story

by Irving Cox

Everything was aimed at satisfying the whims of women. The popular cliches, the pretty romances, the catchwords of advertising became realities; and the compound kept the men enslaved. George knew what he had...

Plague Ship

by Andre Alice Norton

A fast-moving suspense tale, full of unusual detail and unexpected turns. Several highlights make the book really shine: the sunset gorp hunt on the reefs of an oily sea; a raid on an asteroid's emergency station;...

The Velvet Glove

by Harry Harrison

SF writer and editor Harry Harrison explores a not too distant future where robots—particularly specialist robots who don't know their place—have quite a rough time of it. True, the Robot Equality Act had...

Islands of Space

by John Wood Campbell

"Their space-drive engine shattered the intergalactic barriers"

The Hunted Heroes

by Robert Silverberg

The planet itself was tough enough--barren, desolate, forbidding; enough to stop the most adventurous and dedicated. But they had to run head-on against a mad genius who had a motto: Death to all Terrans!

Police Your Planet

by Lester Del Rey

Bruce Gordon was an ex-fighter, ex-gambler, ex-cop, ex-reporter, and now he was an ex-patriot of Earth. Security shipped him to Mars with a knife, 100 credits, and a yellow card that meant no return.

The Graveyard of Space

by Stephen Marlowe

Nobody knew very much about the Sargasso area of the void; only one thing was certain: if a ship was caught there it was doomed in—The Graveyard of Space.

The Day of the Boomer Dukes

by Frederik Pohl

Just as medicine is not a science, but rather an art--a device, practised in a scientific manner, in its best manifestations--time-travel stories are not science fiction. Time-travel, however, has become acceptable...

Atom Drive

by Charles Louis Fontenay

It was a race between the tortoise and the hare. But this hare was using some dirty tricks to make sure the ending would be different....

The Legion of Lazarus

by Edmond Moore Hamilton

Being expelled from an air lock into deep space was the legal method of execution. But it was also the only way a man could qualify for—The Legion of Lazarus.

Bad Medicine

The Day Time Stopped Moving

by Bradner Buckner

All Dave Miller wanted to do was commit suicide in peace. He tried, but the things that happened after he'd pulled the trigger were all wrong. Like everyone standing around like statues. No St. Peter, no pearly...

A Place in the Sun

by Stephen Marlowe

Mayhem, the man of many bodies, had been given some weird assignments in his time, but saving The Glory of the Galaxy wasn’t difficult--it was downright impossible!

Dead Ringer

by Lester Del Rey

There was nothing, especially on Earth, which could set him free—the truth least of all!

While Smoke Rolled

Heist Job on Thizar

by Randall Garrett

In the future, we may discover new planets; our ships may rocket to new worlds; robots may be smarter than people. But we'll still have slick characters willing and able to turn a fast buck--even though they...

The Hills of Home

by Alfred Coppel

''Normality'' is a myth; we're all a little neurotic, and the study of neurosis has been able to classify the general types of disturbance which are most common. And some types (providing the subject is not...

Human Error

by Raymond Fisher Jones

The government was spending a billion dollars to convince the human race that men ought to be ashamed to be men—instead of errorless, cybernetics machines. But they forgot that an errorless man is a dead man....

Exile from Space

by Judith Merril

Who was this strange girl who had been born in this place—and still it wasn't her home?... "They" worried about the impression she'd make. Who could imagine that she'd fall in love, passionately, the way others...

The Man Who Hated Mars

by Randall Garrett

To escape from Mars, all Clayton had to do was the impossible. Break out of a crack-proof exile camp--get onto a ship that couldn't be boarded--smash through an impenetrable wall of steel. Perhaps he could do...
