Child, it was, of the now ancient H-bomb. New. Untested. Would its terrible power sweep the stark Saturnian moon of Titan from space ... or miraculously create a flourishing paradise-colony?ExcerptUnder the glow of Saturn and his Rings, five of the airdomes of the new colony on Titan were still inflated. They were enormous bubbles of clear, flexible plastic. But the sixth airdome had flattened. And beneath its collapsed roof, propped now by metal rods, a dozen men in spacesuits had just lost all hope of rescuing the victims of the accident.Bert Kraskow, once of Oklahoma City, more recently a space-freighter pilot, and now officially just a colonist, was among them. His small, hard body sagged, as if by weariness. His lips curled. But his full anger and bitterness didnt show."Nine dead,"he remarked into the radio-phone of his oxygen helmet."No survivors."And then, inaudibly, inside his mind:"Im a stinkin fool. Why didnt we act against Space Colonists Supply Incorporated, before this could happen?"His gaze swung back to the great rent that had opened in a seam in the airdome--under only normal Earthly atmospheric pressure, when it should have been able to withstand much more. Instantly the warmed air had rushed out into the near-vacuum of Titan, Saturns largest moon. Those who had been working the night-shift under the dome, to set up prefabricated cottages, had discarded their spacesuits for better freedom of movement. It was the regulation thing to do; always considered safe. But they had been caught by the sudden dropping of pressure around them to almost zero. And by the terriblecold of the Titanian night. ...

Gigantic Beasts of Death and Destruction Stalk a Mysterious Island in this Tense, Fantastic Story of Santo DomingoExcerptI have always been immensely concerned about a number of obscure things, especially about what I have come to regard as the invisible telephone wires which connect our conscious thoughts with our dreams, our nightmares, our waking flights of fancy in which we see things no man has ever seenat least in recorded history.Whence come our figments of imagination in which we soar vicariously to heights which no man has ever attained except in similar flights? Where does the subconscious leave off and the conscious begin? Where is the thin dividing line between waking and sleeping, knowing and dreaming?I confess that I do not know, and even the incident of Cabritos has not given me a clue. It is set down here in the hope that perhaps where I have failed to find the clue, others may be more fortunateor, perhaps, unfortunate. I say unfortunate because it may be that it is forbidden for us to know exactly where to set up the invisible wall which separates the known from the unknown.I was doing some work for the Museum of Natural History, and had set up a one-man camp at La Descubierta, on Lake Enriquillo, in the Dominican Republic. The man who had hired me was Curator of Herpetology for his museum, and he was deeply desirous of procuring two things for the organization which had sent him to Santo Domingo.He wished to procure a crocodile or alligatorI was never even scientist enough to know which was which unless I saw a specimen of each, side by sidetwelve feet in length, because such reptiles had been seen in the lake. And he wanted to find a rhinoceros iguana exceeding five feet in length, because native hunters had reported them fairly numerous in the more inaccessible parts of the Republic. There was a story that they flourished in Isla de Cabritos, which is almost in the mathematical center of the lake, opposite La Descubierta. Lake Enriquillo is some forty feet below the level of the Caribbean, and its waters are said to be four times as salty as the sea. The lake is some sixty miles long, and is separated by a rocky rampart from the much higher lake called Lago Del Fondo by Dominicans, and Etang Sumatre by the Haitians. ... Leer resumen completo

The slovenly wub might well have said: Many men talk like philosophers and live like fools.ExcerptThey had almost finished with the loading. Outside stood the Optus, his arms folded, his face sunk in gloom. Captain Franco walked leisurely down the gangplank, grinning."Whats the matter?"he said."Youre getting paid for all th is."The Optus said nothing. He turned away, collecting his robes. The Captain put his boot on the hem of the robe."Just a minute. Dont go off. Im not finished.""Oh?"The Optus turned with dignity."I am going back to the village."He looked toward the animals and birds being driven up the gangplank into the spaceship."I must organize new hunts."Franco lit a cigarette."Why not? You people can go out into the veldt and track it all down again. But when we run out halfway between Mars and Earth"The Optus went off, wordless. Franco joined the first mate at the bottom of the gangplank."Hows it coming?"he said. He looked at his watch."We got a good bargain here."The mate glanced at him sourly."How do you explain that?""Whats the matter with you? We need it more than they do.""Ill see you later, Captain."The mate threaded his way up the plank, between the long-legged Martian go-birds, into the ship. Franco watched him disappear. He was just starting up after him, up the plank toward the port, when he saw it."My God!"He stood staring, his hands on his hips. Peterson was walking along the path, his face red, leading it by a string."Im sorry, Captain,"he said, tugging at the string. Franco walked toward him."What is it?"The wub stood sagging, its great body settling slowly. It was sitting down, its eyes half shut. A few flies buzzed about its flank, and it switched its tail.It sat. There was silence."Its a wub,"Peterson said."I got it from a native for fifty cents. He said it was a very unusual animal. Very respected.""This?"Franco poked the great sloping side of the wub."Its a pig! A huge dirty pig!""Yes sir, its a pig. The natives call it a wub." ... Leer resumen completo

Its effect on the spaceship would be much the same, even though the metallic composition varies somewhat from that of our own bodies.""There is nothing especially worth learning by passing through the tail of the comet,"the professor pointed out."What interests us is watching the comet pass through the planetary sytem which lies in its path. As 65G-849 has told us, there will be no collision with any of the worlds. They are too few and strung out too far, yet their presence is bound to have an effect on the comet even though it may only result in a change of direction. The green sun itself being the largest body of the system, will probably exert the most change and might even bend the course of the comet a hundred and eighty degrees so that it would eventually return this way."Already the metal Zoromes who had once been flesh and blood creatures back on their own planet Zor in a far distant corner of the universe, had taken as much scientific data as possible, short of entering the long gaseous tail. The nucleus was solid, like a small world careening through space. That it carried or sustained any life they seriously doubted, even though they had occasionally found strange life under even stranger conditions during their travels from system to system, world to world, on their eternal exploration for the unusual. ...

In the freezing night the great ship held mysterious secrets, secrets that the Piruts and the Hans wanted.ExcerptWes Kirk shut his teeth together, hard. He turned his back on Ma Kirk and the five younger ones huddled around the box of heat-stones and went to the doorway, padding soft and tight with the anger in him.He shove d the curtain of little skins aside and crouched there with his thick shoulders fitted into the angle of the jamb, staring out, cold wind threading in across his splayed and naked feet.The hackles rose golden and stiff across Kirks back. He said carefully."I would like to kill the Captain and the First Officer and the Second Officer and all the little Officers, and the Engineers, and all their families."His voice carried inside on the wind eddies. Ma Kirk yelled,"Wes! You come here and let that curtain down! You want us all to freeze?"Her dark-furred shoulders moved rhythmically over the socking child. She added sharply,"Besides, thats fools talk, Jakk Randls talk, and only gets the sucking-plant.""Whos to hear it?"Kirk raised his heavy over-lids and let his pupils widen, huge liquid drops spreading black across his eyeballs, slicking the dim grey light into themselves, forcing line and shape out of blurred nothingness.He made no move to drop the curtain.The same sandscape he had stared at since he was able to crawl by away from the box of heat-stones. Flat grey plain running and left to the little curve of the horizon. Rocks in it, and edible moss. Wind-made gullies with grey shrubs thick in their bottoms, guarding their sour white berries with thorns and sacs of poisoned dust that burst when touched.Between the fields and the gullies there were huts like his own, sunk into the earth and sodded tight. A lot of huts, but not as many as there had been, the old ones said. The Hans died, and the huts were empty, and the wind and the earth took them back again.Kirk raised his shaggy head. The light of the yellow star they called Sun caught in the huge luminous blackness of his eyes.Beyond the Hans quarter, just where the flat plain began to rise, were the Engineers. Not many of them anymore. You could see the rusty lumps where the huts had been, the tumbled heaps of metal that might have meant something once, a longer time ago than anyone could remember. But there were still plenty of huts standing. Two hands and one hand and a thumb of them, full of Engineers who said how the furrows should be laid for the planting but did nothing about the tilling of them.And beyond the Engineers the Officers.The baby cried. Ma Kirk shrilled at her son, and two of the younger ones fought over a bone with no meat on it, rolling and snapping on the dirt floor. Kirk shifted his head forward to shut out the sound of them and followed the line of the plain upward with sullen, glowing eyes. ... Leer resumen completo

Cargo, the creeper, came to an abrupt halt when it touched something immobile in the darkness.At first it assumed that the motionless object was Cargo, the thinker."No,"said the thinker."It is not me. It is Cargo, the corpse, once Cargo, the emoter.""Sad, sad,"murmured Cargo, the feeder."So sad that our emoter has been deprived of life.""You miss it more than any of us, do you not?"remarked Cargo, the excretor."Though I have suspected that the creeper feels the lack of it almost as much . . .""No more than you!"said the creeper."No more than any of us. And as Cargo, the whole, we will surely find reproduction an unhappy experience without the emoter. As for me, I suspect that forming the mother egg will be impossible without it. I suggest . . .""Enough!"commanded the thinker."The problem is mine. I do not suspect, I know that you, creeper, are letting your powers wane.

For their rising, excited whispers proclaimed him a knight in shining armor their only hope against the terrible octopods who enslaved them!ExcerptThe Mizar, a glittering needle with s tubby, backswept wings, hurtled out of deep space, arced into orbital flight a thousand kilometers above the surface of the planet. The starship had approached from the night side. Now, as it decelerated rapidly, it flashed into the raw orange daylight ofthe planets KI type sun, angled downward into the stratosphere.Inside the Mizars control blister, Jupiter Jones lifted red-rimmed eyes to the fuel gauge. It showed only a few centigrams left. Little more than enough to land.He swore under his breath, hunched lower over the controls, a long, loose-framed man with a shock of red hair and vivid green eyes. The olive uniform of the Galactic Colonization Board was wrinkled as if it had been slept in, and he had allowed his beard to grow. The bushy orange-red mass of it hid his face almost to the eyes.He was alone in the ship.

But he had a sudden feeling that once he went down he was down for good.The small, round metal platform rocked uneasily under his feet.

A long extension ladder set into the front lawns light greenness reached above the second story to the base of a dragon topped tower sprouting from the roof covering the attic.Theres no question about it not being suicide? demanded the fat little man with the tomato-red face and the blur of snowy hair.Course not, Fred, snorted Sheriff Mort, his lanky body twisting out of the seat of the black pickup truck. He pushed the plaster cast of his left foot to the ground and fumbled for his crutches. Leonard Stayn phoned, said they found him in the library.Odd hed have Rell Forbes fixing the roof, said Fred Rogers, if he was planning to die. You know how tight George always was with his money.Sheriff Motts snort of disgust at his brother-in-laws words brought a wry smile to Freds lips.

CITY OF THE DEAD (EBOOK)

Resumen del eBook

They called Launn a city of the dead. Its Martian peoples lay frozen in their tracks. But were they really dead--or only asleep?ExcerptHaving recently returned from that barren section of Mars, called the Plain of Parna, I wish to report that the City of Launn actually exists. Scientists of this foundation have long believe d that at one time the Plain of Parna, now desolate wasteland was inhabited, and irrigated to produce vast riches to support a city far ahead, in every cultural sense, of any earth settlement.Sparse news of Launn can be gathered on Mars itself. As this planet has once more reverted to the rugged, mining and pioneer country that our own west resembled at one time, the people chuckle at the mere thought that Launn existed or that Mars has ever been anything but a rough, uncomfortable place to live.Not discouraged at the unfriendly attitude encountered in Martian settlements, I left the last outpost, Fitzroy, on the edge of the Plain of Parna, July seventh, 2023. I was alone, and in trying to navigate over the Plain in a small space ship supplied for me by the foundation, I soon learned that the terrific heat caused updrafts above the desert that made space navigation impossible. I was forced to return to Fitzroy and solicit the assistance of a Burtell caravan master, who after many weeks, managed to come with-in sight of Launn. It was then that I learned that other Martians had seen Launn, but refused to help me as they feared the strange city of dead. ... Leer resumen completo

All space was electrified as that harsh challenge rang out ... but John Endlich hesitated. For he saw beyond his own murder--saw the horror and destruction his death would unleash--and knew he dared not fight back!ExcerptThe space ship landed briefly, and John Endlich lifted the huge Asteroids Homesteaders Office box, which contained everything from a prefabricated house to toothbrushes for his family, down from the hold-port without help or visible effort.In the tiny gravity of the asteroid, Vesta, doing this was no trouble at all. But beyond this point the situation was--bitter.His two kids, Bubs, seven, and Evelyn, nine--clad in space-suits that were slightly oversize to allow for the growth of young bodies--were both bawling. He could hear them through his oxygen-helmet radiophones.Around him, under the airless sky of space, stretched desolation that hed of course known about beforehand--but which now had assumed that special and terrible starkness of reality.At his elbow, his wife, Rose, her heart-shaped face and grey eyes framed by the wide face-window of her armor, was trying desperately to choke back tears, and be brave."Remember--weve got to make good here, Johnny,"she was saying."Remember what the Homesteaders Office people told us--that with modern equipment and the right frame of mind, life can be nice out here. Its worked on other asteroids. What if we are the first farmers to come to Vesta?... Dont listen to those crazy miners! Theyre just kidding us! Dont listen to them! And dont, for gosh sakes, get sore...."Roses words were now like dim echoes of his conscience, and of his recent grim determination to master his hot temper, his sensitiveness, his wanderlust, and his penchant for poker and the social glass--qualities of anotherwise agreeable and industrious nature, that, on Earth, had always been his undoing. Recently, back in Illinois, he had even spent six months in jail for all but inflicting murder with his bare fists on a bullying neighbor whom he had caught whipping a horse. Sure--but during those six months his farm, the fifth hed tried to run in scattered parts of North America, had gone to weeds in spite of Roses valiant efforts to take care of it alone....Oh, yes--the lessons of all that past personal history should be strong in his mind. But now will power and Roses frightened tones of wisdom both seemed to fade away in his brain, as jeering words from another source continued to drive jagged splinters into the weakest portion of his soul:"Hi, you hydroponic punkin-head!... How yuh like your new claim?... Nice, aint it? How about some fresh turnips?... Good luck, yuh greenhorn.... Hiyuh, papa! Tied to babys diaper suspenders!... Let the poor dope alone, guys....

Excerpt"Oh God!"Joe gasped. The pencil thick, mile long beam from the enemy mobile synchrotron was cutting through the advancing line. It moved up and down so that it couldnt be escaped even by leaping or by dropping prone. There were no depressions or foxholes for possible sanctuary, either.No escape.Joe looked at the men running on either side of him. Their sweat and dirt streaked faces showed no expression other than fatigue. They werent men, but automatons, one eye on that inexorable pencil of terrible energy moving toward them, the other on the ground ahead of them where they would pass.But a fierce, glad light appeared in the eyes of one of them. Joe followed his gaze. One man, by some miracle, had dodged the beam. He had leaped right and ducked rightand avoided it. Envy suddenly settled into Joes mind. He wouldnt be that lucky. In another few seconds nowHe risked a glance ahead at the low lying hills where the enemy tanks with their synchrotrons were coming forward. They were absolutely impregnable, except to another of their kind.Those terrible pencils of energy, of electrons travelling at two-thirds of the speed of light, up to almost the full speed of light. The mass of an electron was supposed to increase with its speed, so that the ones going at almost the speed of light had masses up in the ounces, instead of ten or more points to the right of the decimal point.Nothing could stop them and survive. They disintegrated the very atmosphere. Where one hit into the soil it left a thin, slate-like slab of fused stuff. Where one passed across the face of foot thick armor plate, it left a crumbling mortar of stuff that had been mostly iron molecules, but was no longer. ... Leer resumen completo

Fog Held More Terrors for Clark Ekvall than All the Planes in Germany and Straight into the Fog He Headed for the Battle of His Life!ExcerptClark Ekvall, striding across the tarmac to Headquarters building, pulled his tunic up higher about his ears. Tentacles of the fog, creeping grey mist, skittered across the field.A col d, biting wind came out of the north, like the breath from a mausoleum. Ekvall shivered in all his six feet. There were too many analogies to the tomb. The fog was too much like the shrouds of the dead.If I believed in signs, muttered Ekvall to himself, I would think I was slated to go West for sure. I wonder what the Old Man wants.Major Fauberg did not long leave Ekvall in suspense.Look here, Clark, he said. This soup is so thick you could cut it with a knife. As long as it lasts there wont be any crates off any field. I know it and you know it, but Wing believes that the Germans deliberately started the fog in order to put something over on us. So weve got to keep patrols up. Jackson, Hobart and yourself are going out on solitary patrols. You leave at once. You wont mind the fog?Ekvall grinned.I was born under a lucky star, he said. Ill never die by fire or water. Fire in the Spad or this fogwhich is thick enough to be waterwont ever bother me!Ekvall saluted. His face was red from the walk across the field. Now he turned back into the tarmac, yelling for his Spad to be run out. The other two crates were already at the apron, their props ticking over, smearing the trailing tendrils of the fog which fled fearlessly into the spinning propellers.Ekvall adjusted helmet, goggles and gauntlets, then bent to examine his crate.This would be just a monotonous ride, nothing more, he reflected as he seated himself in the cockpit.He signaled for his chocks to be kicked free.His Spad started rolling. The fog swirled about him, now and again almost blotting the tips of his wings from view.Any fights aloft today, he told himself, would have to be so close that wed sure lock wings. ...

BROOD OF THE DARK MOON (EBOOK)
CHARLES W. DIFFIN
CHARLES W. DIFFIN

Resumen del eBook

Once more Chet, Walt and Diane are united in a wild ride to the Dark Moon-but this time they go as prisoners of their deadly enemy Schwartzmann.ExcerptIn a hospital in Vienna, in a room where sunlight flooded through ultraviolet permeable crystal, the warm rays struck upon smooth walls the color of which changed from hot re ds to cool yellow or gray or to soothing green, as the Directing Surgeon might order. An elusive blending of tones now seemed pulsing with life; surely even a flickering flame of vitality would be blown into warm livingness in such a place.Even the chart case in the wall glittered with the same clean, brilliant hues from its glass and metal door. The usual revolving paper disks showed white beyond the glass. They were moving; and the ink lines grew to tell a story of temperature and respiration and of every heart-beat.On the identification-plate a name appeared and a date:"Chet Bullard23 years. Admitted: August 10, 1973."For five days the minutes had trickled into a rivulet of time that flowed past a bandaged figure in the bed belowa silent figure and unmoving, as one for whom time has ceased. But the surgeons of the Allied Hospital at Vienna are clever.10:4110:42The bandaged figure stirred uneasily on a snow-white bed....A nurse was beside him in an instant. Was her patient about to recover consciousness? She examined the bandages that covered a ragged wound in his side, where all seemed satisfactory. To all appearances the man who had moved was unconscious still; the nurse could not know of the thought impressions, blurred at first, then gradually clearing, that were flashing through his mind.Flashing; yet, to the man who struggled to comprehend them, they passed laggingly in review: one picture followed another with exasperating slowness....Where was he? What had happened? He was hardly conscious of his own identity....There was a ship ... he held the controls ... they were flying low.... One hand reached fumblingly beneath the soft coverlet to search for a triple star that should be upon his jacket.
