M-139 Empire Star/Tree Lord of Imeten GOOD
By Samuel R. Delany
Cover by Jack Gaughan
Comet Jo had a body that was brown and slim and looked like a cat's, and on his left hand were sharp brass claws with which he had already killed three wild kepards and a boy his own age. He also had a propensity for wandering, and this was to lead him on an adventure spanning uncounted light-years of space and incalculable spans of time, to free a race of beings upon whom the civilizations of the stars depended.
Along the way he would meet:
The strange multiplex consciousness called Jewel
The beautiful soul-burdened space traveler San Severina
A creature known as The Lump, who was half-alien, half-machine
Ni Ty Lee, suicidal poet of the stars, who lived everyone's life but his own
A young princess of the galactic Empire, fresh from Miss Perrypicker's Finishing Academy For Young Ladies
And himself, a thousand times! The pre-drug Delany at his finest. Incredible people, human, alien and otherwise; beautiful lyrical writing; Vistas approaching the unimaginable.
The Tree Lord Of Imeten
By Tom Purdom
Cover by John Schoenherr
Delta Pavonis II . . . far from the sphere of Earth-colonized worlds where a tiny human colony kept a miserable toehold alone on a high plateau of that unexplored planet.
Delta Pavonis II . . . where two people, Harold and Joanne, were driven from the colony, unarmed, into the terrors of the unknown jungle.
Delta Pavonis II . . . where two intelligent races fought a bitter, no-holds-barred battle in which the human intruders proved to be the decisive factor that would throw the world to one species or the other.
