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!

Impact

by Irving Cox

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

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...

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!

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.

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 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....

by John Brudy

To Amos Jordan, Secretary for Cislunar Navigation, no situation was unsolvable. There were rules for everything, weren't there.... Except maybe this thing ...

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 ......

Fee of the Frontier

by Horace Brown Fyfe

They didn't think of themselves as pioneers. They simply had a job to do. And if they had to give up money, or power, or love—or life itself—that was the FEE OF THE FRONTIER

The Night of the Long Knives

The Good Neighbors

by Edgar Pangborn

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

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...

Damned If You Don't

by Randall Garrett

We've all heard of the wonderful invention that the Big Corporation or the Utilities suppressed...? Usually, that Wonderful Invention won't work, actually. But there's another possibility, too....

Satellite System

by Horace Brown Fyfe

Fyfe's quite right ... there's nothing like a satellite system for a cold storage arrangement. Keeps things handy, but out of the way....

Combat

by Mack Reynolds

An Alien landing on Earth might be readily misled, victimized by a one-sided viewpoint. And then again ... it might be the Earthmen who were misled....

Noble Redman

by Jesse Franklin Bone

It was a big joke on all concerned. When you look back, the whole thing really began because his father had a sense of humor. Oh, the name fit all right, but can you imagine naming your son.... Noble Redman

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?

Monkey On His Back

by Charles V. de Vet

Under the cloud of cast-off identities lay the shape of another man-- was it himself?

Gun for Hire

by Mack Reynolds

A gun is an interesting weapon; it can be hired, of course, and naturally doesn't care who hires it. Something much the same can be said of the gunman, too....
