The Original LEGION OF SPACE Trilogy
By Jack Williamson
Covers by Jack Gaughan
Originally published between 1947 and 1950, these stories of the
"Three Musketeers of Space" rank among the finest gems of that era. All
of these are first paperback printings!
The Legion of Space
In the 30th century, a despotic interplanetary empire has been
overthrown, and freedom lives again among the worlds of the Solar
System. Charged with maintaining the new-found democracy is a small
dedicated band known as the Legion Of Space.
serious error was made when the command of humanity's first extra-solar
expedition was given to the man who considered himself heir to the royal
purple of the empire. When this pretender allies with hideous aliens
against his own people, the Legion is forced to confront problems they
never imagined existed.
It's about 20 years after the adventures described in The Legion of Space.
Jay Kalam now commands the Legion. John Star and Aladoree have produced
a son, expected to be heir to the secrret of AKKA, but he has a mental
weakness that may prove fatal to himself and Humanity.
Then come the Cometeers, a star-travelling race whose spaceship,
appearing as a green comet, is twelve MILLION miles in length!!! When a
superhuman traitor from Earth joins the invaders, the entire human race
is suddenly at risk!
One Against The Legion
It has been several years since the Legion of Space beat back the
attack of the Cometeers and their human allies. The Solar System is at
peace, except for occasional outlaws like Chan Derron.
Derron, once a trusted member of the Legion, was wrongly accused of
murdering the System's greatest scientist and stealing his amazing new
invention. He escaped confinement and has been travelling space in his
small ship, deaperately seeking a way to prove his innocence.
When an archvillain calling himself "The Basilisk" initiates a reign of
terror - kidnapping wealthy and famous people, stealing treasure out of
locked vaults, and causing taunting notes to appear on government desks,
"everyone knows" that this must be Derron at work, utilizing the stolen
Chan knows it is NOT he. If he can track down "The Basilisk," he has a
chance of clearing his name. But he must do it alone, with forces of
both good and evil arrayed against him.
This edition also includes an ancillary novelette starring Giles Habibula, Nowhere Near.
The first and third volumes rate somewhere between very good and near-Fine. Cometeers
is merely Good, with a reading crease, wrinkling, and wpots of edge
wear. Pages of all thre are off-white, and bindings are tight and
