F-364 The Mightiest Machine GOOD
The Mightiest Machine
By John W. Campbell, Jr.
Cover by Jerome Podwil
A million light-years from Earth, one solitary Terran spaceship floated amidst a vast fleet of strange starships. It was Aarn Munro's Sunbeam. Powered by a revolutionary new concept in space mechanics worked out by its nearly superhuman inventor, the monster ship had reached beyond the nearer stars to realms uncharted by humanity.
The "mightiest machine" is a star, a monstrous fusion furnace so bright and hot that its zone for human-habitable planets is one-fifth of a light year out! One can only read this Great Stuff and wonder, what classics of science-adventure would Campbell have produced had he not chosen to devote his full time to editing?
First paperback printing, 1965. A bit dull, with spots of edge wear and a reading crease. Spine is rubbed at the bottom and creased up center. Pages are tan. Binding is tight, but concave in the spine and convex in the foredge.
