F-209 The Wizard of Starship Poseidon
Let the Spacemen Beware VG
Let the Spacemen Beware!
("The Night Faces")
By Poul Anderson
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
The men of the spaceship Quetzal had a mission to perform. Everything indicated it would be a simple matter to set up a refueling station on the planet Gwydion. Advance explorations had already determined that the inhabitants of Gwydion were few in number and thoroughly amiable in their ways. In fact, such concepts as anger, thievery, murder and warfare did not exist for them. All that remained was for the crew to find a suitable site and cement friendly relations.
With a change of seasons and the bursting of the countryside into blossom, strange things began to happen . . . .
The Wizard Of Starship Poseidon
By Kenneth Bulmer
Cover by Jack Gaughan
His height barely topped five feet; his spindly legs supported a bulging chest; and his eyes protruded grotesquely from a gnome-like head, but within that absurd-looking man lay the mind of a genius.
It was a genius that had already carried mankind deep into the secrets of creation and was now on the verge of producing organisms from test tubes filled with inert chemicals; however, humanity ridiculed the theories and concepts of Cheslin Randolph, and the government refused to advance the millions needed for his final series of experiments.
Professor Randolph was determined to get the money-even if it meant turning his powerful brain to crime; to wit, the hitherto impossible accomplishment of robbing a starship in mid-flight, using trained viruses as his accomplices.
Clean covers, each with some crinkles, and edge and corner wear. Spine is rubbed at ends. Pages are lightly browned. Binding is tight, slightly canted.
