F-161 Destiny's Orbit
Times Without Number GOOD-plus
By Donald A. Wollheim
(As David Grinnell)
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Though Ajax Calkins was wealthy enough to buy anything on Earth his heart desired, the one thing he wanted most was strictly forbidden. Ajax wanted to be King, in a century when all monarchies had ceased to exist. He desired a world of his own, however small, which would be his private realm in the sky.
The Earth-Mars Space Administration stood in his path. They would tolerate no such 18th-century derring-do in the commercial and workaday interplanetary channels of the 21st century. Empire-building was out!
When an offer from a bearded stranger opened the way to just such an adventure, Ajax leapt at the chance. In his luxury spacecraft Destiny, he shot out through the inner planets to a tiny world that awaited its king---and, unwittingly, to a monstrous outer-planet empire that waited for a detonator to ignite a cosmic war.
Times Without Number
By John Brunner
Cover by Jack Gaughan
Travelling backwards in time, Don Miguel had to undo the errors and interuptions of other time-interlopers; he had to preserve the present. Even the most insignificant nudging of the past could entirely alter his world! And he suspected that this had already happened; that a maniacal genius crazed with a desire for nationalist vindication had plotted to alter the victorious outcome of the Spanish Armada in 1588---thus changing recorded history and perhaps even imperiling the mighty Spanish Empire of 1988!
If Don Miguel did not succeed, when he returned to the present he might find a different world . . . a different time . . . a time in which he probably didn't even exist! Great Stuff!
