H-20 Key To Irunium/Wandering Tellurian GOOD
The Key To Irunium
By Kenneth Bulmer
Cover by Gray Morrow
The first of Kenneth Bulmer's "interdimensional" novels. Here is our introduction to the evil hillarylike Contessa who dominates numberless dimensional analogues of our world, but cannot seem to gain a foothold on Earth itself. It's also our first meeting with porteurs, Thrugs, lombok vines, and other delights of her mysterious realms. Robert Presting, Earthman, becomes involved when a pretty girl sitting next to him on an airplane disappears in mid-flight.
The Wandering Tellurian
By Alan Schwartz
Cover by Jerome Podwil
From one viewpoint, Maikal Wendal was a merchant of death. From his own, he was just a traveling salesman of space, wandering from strange planet to strange planet, trying to sell the native combatants better ways of conducting their local wars.
It wasn't that Maikal was particularly bloodthirsty; it was simply a family tradition: go out and sell the aliens something better than what they have. If they have spears, sell them crossbows. If they have crossbows, sell them guns. If they have cannon and airplanes, sell them A-bombs.
But, on his very first trip out, the natives wanted something with which he didn't care to part---his life.
Covers are a bit dull, and there's dirt visible on the white area of the Irunium side; also a small tear at upper left corner. Other cover has corner wear and a dogear at top. Pages are off-white.
