D-497 Wandl the Invader/I Speak For Earth VG
Wandl The Invader
By Ray Cummings
Cover by Ed Valigursky
There were nine major planets in the Solar System and it was within their boundaries that man first set up interplanetary commerce and began trading with the ancient Martian and Venusian civilizations. And then they discovered a tenth planet-a maverick!
This tenth world, if it had an orbit, had a strange one, for it was plunging headlong inwards from interstellar space, heading towards the Inner System's spaceways, upsetting astrogation calculations, and raising turmoil on the three inhabited worlds.
But even with all that, none suspected just how much trouble this new world was capable of causing; for it was no barren planetoid, but an inhabited world-starship, manned by minds and monsters, bent on a mission of conquest. Same cast of characters as Cummings' terrific Brigands Of The Moon.
I Speak For Earth
By John Brunner
(as Keith Woodcott)
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
Easily the best of the novels Brunner wrote in his "Keith Woodcott" guise. An antiquated council of aliens who rule the Galaxy are worried about the aggressive race of Man expanding to the stars, and disrupting their afternoon tea. Humankind is invited to send one, and only one, representative to the galactic capital to explain why we should be left unmolested. The prize: Full acceptance as equals. The price of failure: Destruction!
So, being humans, we cheat! A new process puts six separate personalities in one body, and he/she/they/it trot(s) off to the stars.
Here's a copy for your collection shelf! Clean, bright covers with minimal edge wear. Faint reading wrinkle on the Cummings side. Pages are tan. Spine and binding are excellent!
