D-381 Secret Of Lost Race/1 Against Herculum VG
Secret Of The Lost Race
By Andre Norton
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Joktar didn't know who he was nor where he'd come from. He had led a gamin orphaned existence in the spaceman's helltown of Interstellar New York all his remembered life-and he'd grown adept at dodging the law, outwitting the criminal. But he knew no special reason why all the forces of the civilized galaxy should suddenly concentrate on him.
But that was what seemed to be happening. Suddenly the top rankers of the Galactic Service were out to get him-and him alone. Nab him, or bring back his carcass!
Joktar ran for his life. He ran right out of the Solar System, straight across the Galaxy, and holed up in the aptly named constellation of the Wolf. There he turned, back against the freezing hell that ws the Wolf world of Fenris, and waited for his hunters.
Until he realized that there was Something Else - something even more feared - out there among the myriad stars that was also looking for him, with a chance of life instead of death as its purpose.
One Against Herculum
By Jerry Sohl
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
Corruption was the rule of order on the domed planetary colony of Herculum. Earthman Alan Demuth, for instance, couldn't get the job he had rightfully qualified for without paying a kickback to the man he hated, Jack Bohannen. Alan thought he could simply report Jack's graft, until he learned none would listen.
There was one desperate recourse. Under provision of the law, Alan could apply for a crime license. His crime would be homicide, and the Victim Jack Bohannen. The law gave him 24 hours to make good his murder.
Failure would mean Alan's death. Success would mean the clean-up of graft and dishonesty. But Alan never realized tht in a graft-ridden society, even a license to kill is liable to prove a backfiring fraud!
