Bow Down To Nul
By Brian W. Aldiss
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
When Earthman Gary Towler is off work, he is a pariah. His task as chief interpreter for the corrupt and tyrannical Nuls makes other humans avoid him as a traitor.
Nor is he trusted by the three-armed methane-breathing mammoths themselves, especially when they learned that an envoy was on the way from their distant planetary headquarters to investigate charges of corruption on Earth. For the leaders realized that Gary knew too much.
When the humans leading the underground rebellion demanded Gary's aid or his life, he was caught between two untrustful forces. And the only way out was to make himself into a one-man third force against two worlds' plotters.
The Dark Destroyers
By Manly Wade Wellman
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Slimy ice-cold creatures had taken over the world in one brutal blitzkrieg, and after fifty years of their domination the only humans left were living like animals in the deepest tropical jungles.
Among those tenacious survivors was Mark Darragh, a brash young man who dreamed of the world his fathers had lost, and who decided to make his dream come true.
Traveling by flimsy canoe, armed with hopelessly outdated weapons, Mark started out for the Cold People's stronghold. Somehow they must have an Achilles heel. All he had to lose was his life, but if he won, he would win a world!
Both covers are a bit dull, each with spots of dirt. Nul cover dogeared at bottom. Spine is nubbed at corners. Pages are browned. Slight bump in binding at beginning of Destroyers. It's otherwise tight and square.
