The turmoil in Africa is only beginning—and it must grow worse before it's better. Not until the people of Africa know they are Africans—not warring tribesmen—will there be peace....

This World Is Taboo

by Murray Leinster

Land on Dara? One might as well commit suicide! Untouchable, like the Darans -- that's what they'd call Calhoun if he broke the quarantine. And they'd wipe him out on sight. But Dara needed him and that was...

Freedom

by Mack Reynolds

Freedom is a very dangerous thing indeed. It is so catching—like a plague—even the doctors get it.

Invaders from the Infinite

The alien spaceship was unthinkably huge, enormously powerful, apparently irresistible. It came from the void and settled on Earth, striking awe into the hearts of all who saw it. Its burden, however, was not...

Ultima Thule

The Man Who Played to Lose

by Laurence Mark Janifer

Sometimes the very best thing you can do is to lose. The cholera germ, for instance, asks nothing better than that it be swallowed alive....

Revenge

by Arthur Porges

Hell may have no fury like a woman scorned, but the fury of a biochemist scorned is just as great —and much more fiendish.

Gone Fishing
