The Jester At Scar
By E. C. Tubb
Cover by Kelly Freas
Under a red giant's light, the planet Scar was a grim world. Its climate was harsh and its vegetation lethal. There were animal forms in the silent sea, but no beasts on the land---except for men who came to satisfy curiosity, wanderlust or greed. Though Scar bred death from a thousand fantastic plants, it offered a fountain of youth from one golden spore---a spore that men would kill for.
Tourists stayed but briefly at Scar. Even for an adventurer it was a bad place to be stranded. But chance---or destiny---had brought Dumarest there in his perpetual search for lost Earth. Along with the usual desperate prospectors, he encountered the ruler of the planet Jest, his willful bride, and her emotionless adviser, one of the loathsome Cybers.
To Venus! To Venus!
By Donald A. Wollheim
(As David Grinnell)
Cover by John Schoenherr
Venus was uninhabitable. If there was anything that the American space probes had shown without a doubt, it was that our nearest neighboring world's temperature was hundreds of degrees, that its atmosphere was unbreathable, that it lacked water, and that it was a pretty good example of Hell in reality.
Until a communication was received from Venus, from the latest Russian probe---a manned expedition! They claimed, they insisted, that Venus was habitable, its temperature bearable, its air breathable. And everything we thought we knew was wrong.
The Russians also claimed to be in serious trouble, and were begging for help. What was the game? Was it some sophisticated trap? An attempt to set up a politcal coup?
So three American astronauts set out for Venus, having absolutely no idea what would happen when---if---they arrived.
