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...

Dead Ringer

by Lester Del Rey

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

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.

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...

Bad Medicine

Islands of Space

by John Wood Campbell

"Their space-drive engine shattered the intergalactic barriers"

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...

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...

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.

Conquest Over Time

by Michael Shaara

"Now this here planet," he said cautiously, "is whacky in a lot of ways. First of all they call it Mert. Just plain Mert. And they live in houses strictly from Dickens, all carriages, no sewers, narrow streets,...

The Venus Trap

by Evelyn E. Smith

One thing Man never counted on to take along into space with him was the Eternal Triangle—especially a true-blue triangle like this!

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!

Suite Mentale

The Executioner

by Frank Riley

The vote was three to two for death! Jacques had no choice. He was a public servant with a duty....

The Rat Racket

by David Henry Keller

With Dr. Keller's genius for hitting at vital spots every time, he now gives us a brand new idea and an ingenious solution. We hope no racketeers read this story. They might, as a result, cause the police some...

Summer Snow Storm

by Stephen Marlowe

Snow in summer is of course impossible. Any weather expert will tell you so. Weather Bureau Chief Botts was certain no such absurdity could occur. And he would have been right except for one thing. It snowed...

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!
