D-286 Across Time / Invaders From Earth GOOD
Invaders From Earth
By Robert Silverberg
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
The writer is a young Bob Silverberg, but this one reads more like one of C. M. Kornbluth's satirical masterpieces.
The Earth was alarmed. The brave little colony of settlers on faraway Ganymede was in grave danger. The fierce, savage natives were arming, gathering for the attack. Innocents were about to be cruelly slaughtered-man, women, babies alike. Could the U.N. rush help in time? Call the world to arms! Rush the troops to the rescue!
That was the story people read in their papers. Kennedy invented it; the giant PR firm he worked for pushed it; and a ruthless syndicate of speculators aimed to profit by it. And the whole world was being swindled by it, for the colony was the figment of a PR man's imagination, and the objective was to exterminate the peaceful inhabitants of the Jovian satellite and mine their world for its precious resources! First book publication.

(As David Grinnell)
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Chasing mysterious celestial phenomena was part of Zack Halleck's Air Force duties, so it wasn't strange that he was assigned to assist his scientist-brother in an attempt to contact extraterrestrial craft, attract them, and trap them. The experiment backfired, and the Halleck brothers were the victims.
When Zack opened his eyes again, it was on the Earth of a million years in the future. Mankind had departed Earth for parts unknown, but another simian race was evolved to civilization. The brothers' love-hate dichotomy climaxes at a planet on the other side of the galaxy. More Great Stuff! First paperback printing. Original appearance was in an Avalon hardcover.
Clean, bright covers, each with several crinkles. Spine is worn at the corners, and there's a full-length wrinkle in the middle. Pages are lightly browned. Binding is tight
