D-121 Stars Are Ours/3 Faces of Time FAIR
The Stars Are Ours!
By Andre Norton
What a great concept is contained in the title alone! In a tyrannized, devastated world, a band of free-thinking scientists manage to break out to the stars.
Dard Nordis grew up in a world devastated by atomic catastrophe. The remanants of humanity had set up a brutal dictatorship to hunt out and destroy all scientists, deemed to have been responsible for the disaster. The day came when the secret laboratory of Dard's brother was raided, and he escaped by the skin of his teeth.
Where else could men go to keep the torch of liberty burning? This statement from one of the characters gives a hint:
"Frontiers of any type, physical or mental,
are but a challenge to our breed. Nothing
can stop the questing of men, not even Man.
If we will it, not only the wonders of
space, but the very stars are ours!"
Three Faces Of Time
By Sam Merwin Jr.
Sequel to the (non-Ace) novel House Of Many Worlds. There are alternate Earths, but they don't all track time at the same speed. As a result, when our heroine crosses over, she is not in the present day, but in the late Roman Republic.
Although chariots roll through the streets and legionaries parade, there is a modern menace lurking behind an ultra-secret wall, a stalking foe from the far future seeking greener worlds to replace its devastated own. Standing against them, desperately seeking to maintain the secrets behind her presence there, stood one lone girl: Elspeth Marriner, American: Time Watcher.
Exterior is battered: dirt, wear, heavy wrinkling, most noticable on th eNorton side. Spine is heavily rubbed along both side edges, worn at the ends, AND faintly creased. Pages are brown. Binding is tight and square.
