ACE DOUBLE M-135 Space Captain/Mad Metropolis GOOD
By Murray Leinster
Trent, captain of the space-freighter Yarrow, came from a long line of spceship commanders. . .and all of them had been troubled by pirates. Due to the nature of the space drive, which permitted flights to the stars past the speed of light, ships in flight were in more danger from each other than anything else. It was the ability of one ship's drive to blow out any drive near it tht made space pirates so difficult to eradicate.
But this time Trent went into overdrive with a special device aboard-one that would turn the tables and make space permanently barred to pirates.
Trent was himself skeptical. His skepticism stood him in good stead when he found himself more pirate bait than pirate baiter-and his secret weapon a space-warping, double-edged boomerang.
The Mad Metropolis
By Philip E. High

A solution to the problem: An ultra-intelligent computer to govern humanity.
One man of seemingly average intelligence, but with a formidable I Q potential.
And You Have: A corrupt society turned into a world where there is no corruption, because Mother machine knows what's best for her human children and does it. Where that same all-powerful computer is rapidly turning men into zombies.
And where the world's only hope turns out to be a not-so-average man.
