D-113 The Transposed Man/One In 300 VG
One In 300
By J.T. McIntosh
Cover by Ed Valigursky
One In 300 is the answer to a trivia question: What is the longest half of an Ace Double? 222pp! One is 300 is the precentage of Earthmen scheduled to survive the coming catastrophe: The sun is about to heat up and destroy Earth, and our technology will allow 1/300th of the population to be transported to Mars, where civilization can, hopefully, be rebuilt. How would you select those who are to survive?
The Transposed Man
By Dwight V. Swain
The Society of Mechanists considered themselves the inevitable rulers of the universe. Man in his fumbling, stumbling race for survival could not hope to stand against an order baptized by the merciless creed of logic and infallibility. To the Meks the faithful gave everything, asked nothing.
Operator Four-four had given up his body, his name, but within him existed the seeds of memory; and even in the camp of a bitter enemy, Four-four discovered that there were eternal laws that no man-made world could change.
Both covers are clean. McIntosh side has crinkles, the other is slightly underlapped. Pages are browned. Binding istight, but there's some unevenness in the edges.
