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!

Hunters Out of Space

Oomphel In The Sky

by Henry Beam Piper

In Case of Fire

by Randall Garrett

There are times when a broken tool is better than a sound one, or a twisted personality more useful than a whole one. For instance, a whole beer bottle isn't half the weapon that half a beer bottle is ...

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!

A Question of Courage

by Jesse Franklin Bone
