Pyramid F-794 D-99 Good
By H. B. Fyfe
Cover by Ralph Brillhart
Earthmen range the galaxy, interacting with any number of weird alien races and even weirder human colonies. In the State Department of the government of this future world exists Department 99 (D-99), which, like our present day Consular Operations, is charged with overseeing the well-being of citizens traveling to faraway places.
D-99 operates from the top of a skyscraper in New York, with instant communications facilities which range the farthest stars. This is the story of one "typical" night, in which the department is faced with four serious problems:
Harris was caged in an underwater zoo by a pack of blue lobsters.
Maria drew a five-year sentence for trying to buy a souvenir, and for being excessively feminine
Taranto & Meyers had committed the crime of being shipwrecked on a planet that didn't like strangers
Gerson had been kidnapped, and no one had any idea why!
