F-108 Sun Saboteurs/Light Of Lilith GOOD
The Sun Saboteurs
(The Earth Quarter)
By Damon Knight
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Laszlo Cudyk, Seu Min, Father Exarkos---their names suggested vastly different ancestry, dissimilar backgrounds. But on the Niori planet where they lived, those names also suggested an important common denominator: all of them were immigrants from Earth.
For Earth, having been spent on war and destruction, was no longer capable of supporting anything more than the most primitive agrarian society. And men of intellect and learning, if they were to find any kind of existence at all, had to find it on alien planets.
It wouldn't have been a bad life, either, had there been any kind of rapport between the Earthmen and their hosts, but the Niori had no understanding-or trust-of a people that could kill and destroy. The Earthmen were not sure that they could prove their new-found maturity quickly enough to keep from being banished forever to a home-world gone backwards in time.
The Light Of Lilith
By G. McDonald Wallis
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
In the strange light of the planet Lilith, Mason saw the future:
Man was being scorched from the face of the Earth, and burned like a pestilence off the neighboring planets, for now was the time of the end of his sun.
And knowing that, for an instant Mason knew also how far he had travelled. Not some thousands of years through space, through swirling galaxies and suns; that, yes, but not only that. He had also travelled into time, some then thousand million years into the future to witness the end of the world.
Not all the resources of the heavens, racing faster than the speed of light, could save the enormous population from its fate . . .
But somehow Mason realized that he had been granted this vision for a purpose. In his foreknowledge lay the hope that this thing might not come to pass. Somehow, someway, on the eerie world of Lilith, there was a by-pass to that far-off doom. Would he know it when he saw it?
