D-479 To The Tombaugh Station/Earthman Go Home VG
To The Tombaugh Station
By Wilson Tucker
The plot is a bit contrived, but Tucker still spins it into a great story. It's one of those rarities where an author is able to successfully combine a mystery story with science-fictional concepts.
Kate Bristol is a futuristic insurance investigator, detailed to determine if a certain space-pilot murdered his partner to collect his life insurance. She finds she has to make a trip with him to the ends of the Solar System, in a crowded little spaceship. Sorry! Despite all that, there are no lurid sex scenes. Just a good story.
Earthman, Go Home
By Poul Anderson
The second of Captain Sir Dominic Flandry's adventures to make it into Ace Books. A "lost" settlement, mostly Malays, must be drawn back into the Terran Empire sphere of influence for its own sake, and to prevent the evil Merseians from using it as an attack base. Of course, the people of Unan Besar, having been ignored by Terra for megayears, are not really interested in the "benevolent" empire. Great Stuff!
