F-295 THE WORLD OF NULL-A Fair
The World Of Null-A
by A. E. Van Vogt
In the world of 2650 A.D., a non-Aristotlean philosophy dominates the unified human race. Most people live to compete in The Games, a series of physical and mental tests deigned to select the best and brightest of the human race. Gilbert Gosseyn, on the verge of his first attempt at this massive competition, is shocked to discover that (1) all of his memories are false; (2) he has no idea who he really is; and (3) the Games are rigged.
Confused, manipulated by an unknown, shuttled from Earth to Venus and back again, Gosseyn slowly becomes aware that there are two plots in operation. The mundane one is the attempt to take over the rule of humanity by an clinton-like gang of criminals. But far more important are mysterious entities from beyond the Solar System, intent upon destroying both the legitimate rulers and the crooks, and eliminating the greatest threat to their Galactic Empire - the philosophy of NULL-A!
