F-199 Captives of the Flame/The Psionic Menace GOOD
Captives Of The Flame
By Samuel R. Delany
Cover by Jack Gaughan
The Empire of Toromon had finally declared war. The attacks on its planes had been nothing compared with the final insult-the kidnapping of the Crown Prince. The enemy must be dealt with, and when they were, Toromon would be able to get back on its economic feet.
But how would the basics of this civilization-one of the few that had survived the Great Fire-get beyond the deadly radiation barrier, behind which the enemy lay? And assuming that they got beyond the barrier, how would they deal with that enemy-The Lord Of The Flames-whose very presence was unknown to the people among whom it lived?
First volume of Delany's "Fall of the Towers" trilogy, later reprinted as Out of the Dead City. Superb stuff!
The Psionic Menace
By John Brunner
(as "Keith Woodcott")
The Starfolk, arrogant masters of vast stretches of the cosmos beyond the Earth's sphere of influence, were determined to complete the extermination of the mind-reding mutants on Regnier's Planet.
But to the mutants themselves, the terror of the Starfolk was nothing compared with the greater dread which gripped their spirits-the obsession that the Universe itself was doomed. This obsession ripped into their minds, overwhelmed them, and plunged them into horrifying hysteria.
The message of doom reached the ears of the Starfolk themselves, forcing them to a fateful decision. They would allow an Earthman, archaeologist Philip Gascon, to visit Regnier in an attempt to unravel its secrets. What he found would either contain the key to the ultimate destiny of the Universe-or the date of doomsday. Wow!
Clean covers, still glossy, with edge and corner wear. Spine is heavily worn at corners, rubbed along one edge. Pages are lightly browned. Binding has one partial break, near beginning of Brunner novel.
