D-146 FORGOTTEN PLANET
+ CONTRABAND ROCKET vg
The Forgotten Planet
By Murray Leinster
Truly a classic! The Forgotten Planet is a world where the Terraforming stopped too soon. Result: insects evolved to human size plus. Non-chlorophyll plants also prospered and killed off the trees and grasses, then evolved into hugeness themselves. You would not expect a shipload of people stranded on such a world to survive, but humans are stubborn and resourceful. This is the story of their many-times descendants, and it's a great one.
By Lee Correy
When Chubb Delany saw the slim, graceful rocket ship The Absyrtis standing in Luna Louis' junkyard, his heart leaped. It was a beauty and Chubb wanted more than anything else to refit it and fly it to the moon.
The problem was, that in this year 2050, spaceflight belonged to the "experts," and private citizens like Chubb couldn't get off the ground, at least not in their own ships.
Chubb and his cohorts in the Southwest Rocket Society were out to buck the UN Bureau of Space Commerce, and prove to the world that the universe should be opened to adventurers like themselves.
This copy, frankly, looks better than it is. Covers are clean and bright with spots of edge and corner wear. Two full-length wrinkles in the spine. Pages are deep tan, brown in the margins. Binding is broken near the end of "Rocket."
