D-84 The Rebellious Stars / An Earth Gone Mad NF
The Rebellious Stars
(The Stars Like Dust)
By Isaac Asimov
Another title under which this work has been published, in its original appearance as a serial in Galaxy, was Tyrann. A young man, an heir to the rule of a colony world, is attending the University of Earth, where the dormitories and classrooms are lined with lead to block the incipient radioactivity which has turned the mother world into a ghost planet. After receiving an atomic scare one night, he is informed of three important facts:
His father has been murdered, and he is now the ruler of his world.
His real purpose on Earth was to acquire a document, of which he knows nothing.
His life is in danger every moment he remains in public view on Earth.
Fleeing across the galaxy, visiting odd worlds controlled by even odder people, all the time searching for an ancient document which, it is thought, will free his world from the menace of the planet Tyrann . . . classic space opera, from a writer not often associated with that particular sub-genre.
An Earth Gone Mad
(The Star Dice)
By Roger Dee
Cover by Ed Valigursky
While shipwrecked on a distant Jovian moon, with only a cryptic monster for a companion, Paul Shannon had longed for the crowds of Earth, the company of men and women. But, when he was finally able to return his battered spacecraft to the familiar skies of North America, he was horrified at the changes taking place. The familiarity and comfort for which he had longed were a forgotten dream!
Men's ambitions, women's love, and the eternal competitive clash of wills had given way to the passive docility of tamed beasts. A new cult, born in the stars, was sweeping the world, promising glory but bringing only mental numbness. Shannon realized that he, and only he, held the key to relieving this cosmic horror. Would he be able to use it in time?
Note: Rumors that the device used to create this human mindlessness and submissiveness actually exists in our time, and is going to be used by the democrat party to swing the upcoming election, are gross exaggerations. I think.
It's a beautifully-preserved copy. The outside looks new, the spine is uncreased. But the pages are brown.
