48245 Hunting On Kunderer / Life With Lancelot RC
Hunting On Kunderer
By William Barton
Kunderer --- an Earth-type world with jungle and forest covering nearly every square inch of land from snow line to snow line. Huge trees and other flora; huge beasts and other fauna; no intelligent natives unless they were concealed beneath the tree-cover. Unsuitable for human colonization, but a marvelous, gargantuan hunting preserve for interstellar millionaires.
Until the Wandervoegel hunting party arrived on the Planet Primeval. Things start going wrong even before the landing craft break orbit. And by the time the safari ends, the secrets of Kunderer have been explored more thoroughly than ever before --- with astonishing results!
Life With Lancelot
By John T. Phillifent
When the twisted, radioactive wreckage screamed down out of space onto their dark planet, the Shogleet were instantly intrigued. To that incredibly ancient race, evolved to the point where energy, matter and form held no more secrets, only curiosity remained. And this wreck was curious. Metals and plastics, physical and chemical combinations, they were familiar enough. By probing and deduction they could reconstruct the original form of it. But their probing unearthed something else: a spark of life, but barely alive.
Using their combined talents, they caught the spark, studied it, reconstructed it. From the still viable patterns of intelligence they deduced the whole, and they remade a man. Going further, they discovered his history and, from that, something of the history of the whole species. They were incredulous, unwilling to admit that such a monstrosity could have ever existed.
So they remade the ship and sent it back whence it had come, but appointed one of their number to go along with the experiment and observe.
