M-117 Ultimatum in 2050/Our Man In Space NF
Ultimatum In 2050 A.D. (The Programmed People)
By Jack Sharkey
Cover by John Schoenherr
It was the year 2050 A.D. and the Hive, with its ten million inhabitants, was going along as smoothly as ever. Except that, on a whim, Kinsman Lloyd Bodger Jr. had helped a fugitive girl escape hospitalization, and she had told him her secret: "There are no hospitals! There is only death!"
Of course it couldn't be true. Lloyd's own father was second-in-command of the Hive, the first true democracy. "But why," said she, "doesn't anyone ever return from hospitalization? Why is the population always a constant ten million?"

Our Man In Space
By Bruce W. Ronald
Cover by Ed Valigursky
Bill Brown was a second-rate actor who happened to look enough like a dead spy from the planet Troll to qualify as one-fourth of Earth's Interplanetary Secret Service. His assignment was simply to impersonate Harry Gordon, the dead agent, plant false information as to the length of time it would take Earth to die of population suffocation, and return to Earth, 10,000 credits richer.
It was only when Brown/Gordon got to Troll that he realized things were somewhat more complex. It turned out that Brown had been sold out by his government; that Earth didn't give a hoot about the life of its new amateur spy; and that there was a little bomb inside Bill Brown's head that Earth was 80% sure would go off!
