66160 Phoenix Ship / Earthrim VG+
By Nick Kamin
Cover by Panos Koutrouboussis
Though his name was Standard, he was anything but . . .
He was in the country without the all-knowing computer knowing it.
He was listed as slain in the last war
He had no credit and no means of establishing it
He was fitted with a non-standardized arificial arm, too heavy for comfort and with insufficient control for good usage
He knew too little of his own background
He was wanted by:
The Official Police
The Secret Police
The ever-growing, mysterious, world-wide cancer known as "The rim"
Standard was his name. Saving the world was his game.
By Walt & Leigh Richmond
Cover by Jack Gaughan
Earth had everything going for it. Not only was the mother planet top dog in the solar system---her weak colonies hanging on by the skin of their teeth had to heed her every whim.
Her spaceships were tops; her armament invincible; and she had just developed a new method of computerized schooling that seemed certain to develop an army of superminds to do Earth's bidding.
Yet, if all this was truly so, how was it that the pesky little mining ships of the poorest colonial offshoot of all---the barren rocks of the asteroid belt---had beaten Earth's fleet to a frazzle and her homemade strategists were outthinking the best of the whole Earth High Command?
