D-457 VULCAN'S HAMMER / SKYNAPPERS vg
By Philip K. Dick
Vulcan 3 was the supreme head of Unity, the perfect world government that had evolved out of chaos and war. Vulcan 3 was rational, objective and unbiased . . . as only a machine could be!
Theoretically there should have been nothing but peace under such a rule -- and for a century or so there was. Until the crackpots, the superstitious, the mystics and religious fanatics found themselves a new leader to follow.
Then the discontent began to explode again. But this time there was a third side involved, a machine that could not accept any emotional viewpoints. The people of the world began to realize that they had created a vicious paradox: they had to make peace among themselves, or be stamped out by the ever-growing claws of Vulcan.
By John Brunner

He awoke to find himself considered as a kidnapped barbarian from a backward planet in a galaxy of advance civilizations, a barbarian who held in his hands the key to all their futures.
Covers are clean, but their gloss has been killed. Touch of corner wear. Spine is rubbed along the Vulcan edge. Pages are browned. Binding is tight and square
