F-123 Collision Course / Nemesis From Terra NF
By Robert Silverberg
One of the last novels Silverberg produced before he turned himself into a "literary" writer. After four centuries of space travel, mankind had explored and colonized every inhabitable world within a radius of 400 light-years. Not a trace of any other intelligent life had ever been sighted. It seemed as if the universe belonged to us!
Thus, the sudden discovery of another, more advanced, race already busy colonizing far-off planets shook the very foundations of human superiority.
Deflated egos weren't the only problem. Man was determined to continue outward, and the aliens obstinately had the same plans. What could prevent the inevitable clash of the two stellar empires and the logical corollary, destruction of all worlds?
The Nemesis From Terra
("Shadow Over Mars")
By Leigh Brackett
Rick Urquhart was going to tame and rule the turmoil-ridden planet of Mars. There was no doubt in his mind, for had not the old Martian mystic prophesied it? Power and glory appealed to Rick and shrewd determination ruled his every move.
Needless to say, the idea didn't please anyone else: not the powerful corporation which controlled Earth-Mars trade; not the decrepit ancient Martian race, which had no desire to be ruled by an alien; and certainly not the woman he loved, who would rather see him killed than astride a throne!
