D-485 Puzzle Planet/Angry Espers NF
The Puzzle Planet
By Robert A. W. Lowndes
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
This is a resounding answer to the types who claim that true science-fiction concepts cannot interact with the elements of a classic mystery!
Roy Auckland had been asked to join the expedition investigating the remote planet Carolus. Despite the fact that he was a communications expert and not an explorer, he was excited about the opportunity to visit an unknown world. But he could not help wondering why he had been requested by the head of the team.
Once on Carolus, Roy met the weird creatures called the Vaec and was immediately intrigued by their mirth-loving nature and their patient devotion to practical jokes.
But was it one of their pranks that almost exploded alongside Dr. James' skull? Or was it a made-on-Earth murder gimmick?
Suddenly, Auckland realized that behind their "native simplicity," the Vaec were dangerously and subtly deceptive. And he also realized that he had to break through their mask to understand them, or Dr. James would be only the first of the Earthmen to die!
The Angry Espers
By Lloyd Biggle Jr.
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Suppose you were a member of a humanoid race, a race possessing a full range of what we humans call "extrasensory powers." A strange spaceship crashes on one of your worlds. You fish out a survivor, as fully human as you. You nurse him back to health, but his "recovery" is incomplete because he exhibits no trace of the mind power which your race takes for granted. You try every therapy known, and nothing seems to help. Just as you are ready to institutionalize this poor wretch, he blurts out that he comes from a world called Earth, and NONE of his people possesses any vestige of ESP. You are a compassionate member of a compassionate race. What can you do to help this wretched people? The answer is obvious: you go to war to exterminate this subhuman species called "Man."
