D-96 The Last Planet/A Man Obsessed VG
The Last Planet
By Andre Norton
From the author's Prolgue:
"There is an old legend concerning a Roman Emperor, who, to show his power, singled out the Tribune of a loyal legion and commanded that he march his men across Asia to the end of the world. And so a thousand men vanished into the hinterland of the largest continent . . ."
"In 8054 A.D. history repeated itself, as it always does. The First Galactic Empire was breaking up . . . It was a time when only the ruthless could flourish."
A wannabe dictator usurped the Roman idea as his own, and commanded a fleet of ships representing the last authority of the Empire to up-ship for unknown sectors of the starfield. True to their trust, they went, never to be heard from again. This is the story of one of those ships, Starfire, Vegan registry . . .
A Man Obsessed
(The Mercy Men)
By Alan E. Nourse
Jeffrey Meyer had a killing on his mind. It meant nothing to him that his towering 21st-Century world was going mad. He shouldered aside the rising tide of narcotics-mania, the gambling fever, the insatiable lust for the irrational. Jeff had his own all-consuming ambiting: Paul Conroe must die!
After a five-year frenzied chase, Jeff had his victim cornered. He'd driven him into the last hideaway of the world's most desperate men---the sealed vaults of the human-vivisectionists. Jeff knew that to reach his final horrible objective, he must offer himself as a guinea pig for the secret experiments of the world's most feared physicians.
Written nearly 50 years ago by a medical doctor, this is a frightening portrait of a world in which the health care industry has fallen under total control of the government; in other words, a world in which the clintons won their 1993 assault on human freedom! Must be read!
Covers are dull, with heavy wrinkling which runs through the entire book. Edge and corner wear, most noticeable on the spine. Pages are brown. It wil be a tough read because of the wrinkling, but everything is in place.
