G-614 Shock Wave/Envoy To The Dog Star GOOD
By Walt & Leigh Richmond
Cover by Hoot von Zitzewitz
An Earthman is suddenly and mysteriously transposed to an alien planet: an utterly empty, completely lifeless outpost of a far-flung galaxy. The Earthman has no idea where he is, how he came to be on the godforsaken world, or how to get home.
For company there is only a computer, a compuer which has all the answers to all of the Eatrhman's questions. But the computer is programmed to give information only to those rproperly trained and qualified to understand it. The Earthman is not.
The Earthman must outwit the rigid electro-mechanical being to learn the secrets which will get him back to Earth. Unlikely to work, but what else is there to try?
Envoy To The Dog Star

Cover by Lloyd Birmingham
A first flight to a distant star is a tediously long and exceedingly dangerous experiment, really too much to as of any reasonable man. But why use a reasonable man when there is a reasonable dog available?
There was a Mans' Best Friend available for that purpose; a dog raised biogenetically to the inteeligence level of a human being, able to think, communicate, and transmit back what people wanted to know about the planets circling Sirius.
What was not realized in advance was that a dog trained to think for people may also start thinking about its own best interests too, and that perhaps Sirius was not called the Dog Star for nothing!
