D-31 Universe Maker / The World of Null-A GOOD
The World Of Null-A
by A. E. Van Vogt
In the non-Aristotelian world of 2650 A.D., most humans live to compete in The Games, a series of physical and mental tests deigned to select the best and brightest of the human race. Gilbert Gosseyn, on the verge of his first attempt at this massive competition, is shocked to discover that (1)all of his memories are false; (2) he has no idea who he really is; (3) the Games are rigged.
Confused, manipulated by an unknown, shuttled from Earth to Venus and back again, Gosseyn slowly becomes aware that there are two plots in operation. The mundane one is the attempt to take over the rule of humanity by an obamadroid-like gang of criminals. But beyond that are mysterious entities from other stars, intent upon destroying both the legitimate rulers and the crooks, and eliminating the greatest threat to their Galactic Empire - the philosophy of NULL-A!
The Universe Maker
by A. E. Van Vogt
Did you ever hear of the Inter-Time Society for Psychological Adjustments? Well, neither had Morton Cargill in 1953 when he accidentally killed a girl. A year later that very girl turned up, apparently alive, and announced that the mysterious society had condemned him to death!
Cargill's astounding adventures began when he escaped the execution chamber to find himself in the far future. Three conflicting societies were hunting for him, to use him in their own desperate schemes. There were the Floaters, a nation of aerial vagabonds. There were the Tweeners, who dreamed of world conquest. And finally, interwoven through everything, were the sinister figures of the Shadow Men - supermen without visible substance.
There's a patina of dirt over both covers, and each has a long dogear crease at the bottom. Spine has a tiny split at one corner, nubs at the other three. Pages are browning. Binding is tight and square.
