D-311 Stepsons Of Terra/Man Called Destiny G-minus
I'm inordinately fond of this pair. It's a hard-to find double; I suspect because the entire print run used shoddy material.
Stepsons Of Terra
By Robert Silverberg
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
The first Corwinite in 500 years to visit Earth, Baird Ewing had been delegated to request help from the mother world against a marauding fleet of invaders from outside the galaxy. But Earth was now a decadent, moldering world, uninterested in aiding its far-flung, and now independent, colonies.
Despairing, Ewing is prepared to return home, when he stumbles upon a fringe group of researchers who seem to have discovered the secret of time travel. Is it possible this new science can be used to stop the invaders? The best person to ask about this is --- his other self, who has already moved back down the time-tracks.
A Man Called Destiny
By Lan Wright
Cover by Ed Valigursky
It begins with a thrid-rate space engineer temporarily stranded on a fourth-rate planet. It ends with a confrontation that will shape galactic civilization for the next millennium. It's never been reprinted, and it's GREAT STUFF!
Clean covers with spots of edge wear. Stepsons side is underlapped. Spine is heavily rubbed at ends, and along one edge. Pages are off-white. Binding is intact, but feels loose. Read with caution!
