by Harry Harrison

Some planet in the galaxy must—by definition—be the toughest, meanest, nastiest of all. If Pyrrus wasn't it ... it was an awfully good approximation!

The Misplaced Battleship

by Harry Harrison

It might seem a little careless to lose track of something as big as a battleship... but interstellar space is on a different scale of magnitude. But a misplaced battleship--in the wrong hands!--can be most...

Storm Over Warlock

by Andre Alice Norton

Stranded on the alien world of Warlock, Shann Lantree's expedition camp has been wiped out by the Throgs, beings so alien that humans have yet to communicate with them. Lantree must quickly learn how to survive...

Impact

by Irving Cox

They were languorous, anarchic, shameless in their pleasures ... were they lower than man ... or higher?

The Burning Bridge

by Poul William Anderson

Usually there are two "reasons" why something is done; the reason why it needs to be done, and, quite separate, the reason people want to do it. The foul-up starts when the reason-for-wanting is satisfied ......

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 K-Factor

by Harry Harrison

Speed never hurt anybody--it's the sudden stop at the end. It's not how much change that signals danger, but how fast it's changing....

The Status Civilization

by Robert Sheckley

Will Barrent had no memory of his crime . . . but he found himself shipped across space to a brutal prison-planet. On Omega, his only chance to advance himself -- and stay alive -- is to commit an endless series...

The Night of the Long Knives

Subspace Survivors

by Edward Elmer "Doc" Smith

There has always been, and will always be, the problem of surviving the experience that any trained expert can handle ... when there hasn't been any first survivor to be an expert! When no one has ever gotten...

The Good Neighbors

by Edgar Pangborn

You can’t blame an alien for a little inconvenience--as long as he makes up for it!

The Wailing Asteroid

by Murray Leinster

THE PUBLIC ABRUPTLY ceased to be interested in news of the signals. Rather, it suddenly wanted to stop thinking about them. The public was scared. Throughout all human history, the most horrifying of all ideas...

The Success Machine

by Henry Slesar

Mechanical brains are all the rage these days, so General Products just had to have one. But the blamed thing almost put them out of business. Why? It had no tact. It insisted upon telling the truth!

The Return

by Henry Beam Piper

The isolated little group they found were doing fine-- but their religion was most strange--and yet quite logical!

Wizard

by Laurence Mark Janifer

Although the Masquerade itself, as a necessary protection against non-telepaths, was not fully formulated until the late years of the Seventeenth Century, groups of telepaths-in-hiding existed long before that...

The Issahar Artifacts

by Jesse Franklin Bone

Lincoln said it eons ago.... It took a speck of one-celled plant life on a world parsecs away to prove it for all the galaxy.

Viewpoint

by Randall Garrett

A fearsome thing is a thing you're afraid of--and it has nothing whatever to do with whether others are afraid, nor with whether it is in fact dangerous. It's your view of the matter that counts!

Oomphel In The Sky

by Henry Beam Piper

Since Logic derives from postulates, it never has, and never will, change a postulate. And a religious belief is a system of postulates ... so how can a man fight a native superstition with logic? Or anything...

Jack of No Trades

by Charles Cottrell

First we discovered the Willy Maloon category. Then we discovered Willy himself. Then we data-researched, and postulated a theory. Everything was easy, until it came to the question of proof.

Psichopath

by Randall Garrett

Given psi powers like clairvoyance and telepathy, solving problems of sabotage would be easy, of course. That is, it seems that way at first thought!
