The Genetic General
By Gordon R. Dickson
Cover by Ed Valigursky
The original printing, in book form, of Gordon R. Dickson's classic, the first novel he wrote in his "Childe Cycle."
Donal Graeme was from The Dorsai, a small planet whose major export was well-trained, fearless military mercenaries. On the day he reached adulthood, he was ready to go out among the star systems and make his name. He paused for a moment, pondering the strange, indefinable force that seemed to drive him to his unknown destiny.
Now, after six years of desperate exploits, Donal once again felt that hidden power that no living being could explain.
Time had run out! The great far-flung worlds of Man had played their planetary politics and now their two warring camps wer on the eve of a fantastic final reckoning. Suddenly, now, Donal knew his destiny; that he was the one man among the stars in a position to stop the mechanism behind this suicidal struggle. To do it, he had to tackle the impossible and conquer the invincible!
Time to Teleport
By Gordon R. Dickson
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
They called their secret society, simply, Members of the Human Race, but the majority of humanity preferred to call them "The Inhumans." That's because it was generally believed that they were a vicious masked gang of mutators, vivisectionists, and monster-makers.
In fact, it had gotten to the point where the world government, that amazing non-national association of services which had abolished war, was about to outlaw and destroy them. If the government acted-and its spokesman, Anthony Sellars, was ready to-it might be the first armed conflict in nearly a century. But it would be scarcely more than a police action: the entire "respectable" world against a hideout bunch of crackpots.
Except, as Sellars was to find out, how do you go about collaring people who can walk through walls?
