M-103 Golden People / Exile From Xanadu FAIR
Exile From Xanadu
By Lan Wright
Cover by Ed Emshwiller
Regan's last waking memory was of the clamor of alarm bells---a sound that lasted a bare second before it dissolved and was lost in a holocaust of roaring noise and flame. He never did recall the reflex action that flung his screaming body towards the survival capsule.
When he awoke at last, there was nothing but blackness, yet the pain was gone. His body was compressed and comforted in an all-embracing nest of yielding softness that was like a vast mother-womb, so close did it enfold him. He moved slightly, and at once a voice said, "Can you hear me?" In a panic, Regan tried to open his eyes but could not. With dread, he lay very still, waiting, for the voice was not human . . .
The Golden People
By Fred Saberhagen
Cover by Jack Gaughan
The planet was called Golden in honor of the planeteer whose ship had crashed there years before. It was an Earth-type world, with humanoid natives, and other cretures that were---something less.
Or maybe more. For almost all the planet was covered by an invisible field which blanked radar, damped the power of the Earthmen's stunners, immobilized their robots and caused watches to run backward. No machine or weapon more complicated than the lever or knife could work inside the field.
Which meant that the Space Force had to revert to the primitive to explore the world of Golden. And obviously, someone or something hidden in the vast reaches of the planet had planned it that way.
Mostly-clean covers with vertical creasing/crinkling; edge and corner wear. Spine is split at one corner, rubbed along one edge, and rubbed across one end. Pages are browned. Binding is tight and square
