G-574 Rocannon's World / Kar-Chee Reign RC
By Ursula K. LeGuin
Cover by McConnell
Legend and fact are strangely mingled on the far worlds of the stars-planets where the past is a matter of myth, and a returning spaceman finds his own doings of a few years back have become the gestures of a god.
So it was on the world where three native humanoid races, the cavern-dwelling Gdemiar, elvish Fiia and warrior-clan Liuar, were suddenly invaded and conquered by a fleet of ships from the stars. Earth scientist Rocannon was on that world, and he saw his friends murdered and his spaceship destroyed. Marooned among alien peoples, he led the battle to free his new world-and found that legends grew around him even as he fought!
The Kar-Chee Reign
By Avram Davidson
Cover by Jack Gaughan
It was the distant future of Earth, and the mother planet of a galaxy-wide empire had been forgotten by her far-flung colonies. Forgotten, tired, old and stripped of her ores and natural fuels, earth and the scatteed bands of humans left behind were totally unprepared for the invasion of the strange, monstrous Kar-chee from the depths of the stars.
The Kar-chee had come to strip Earth of the few natural resources the planet had left-to crack the marrow of the aged planet and scavenge whatever of worth was left there. It was a massive, planet-wide operation in which continents were sunk and oceans drained, and if the tiny, insignificant humans died in these holocausts, what did that matter to the Kar-chee?
But it mattered to the humans . . . and, at last, they began to fight . . .
Exterior is a maze of crinkles, including some that are full length of the covers. Edge and corner wear. Interior is much better. Pages are browning, but binding is theht and square.
