Table of contents.Links on author fetch more fiction by author.
- [novelet] Isaac Asimov's "The C-Chute": "The spaceship had to be recaptured from the aliens, which meant that somebody had to be a hero. But who would that be ... & why?"
- [novelet] William L Bade's "Ambition": "To the men of the future, the scientific goals of today were as incomprehensible as the ancient quest for the Holy Grail!"
- [ss] Ralph Robin's "Pleasant Dreams": "Where better to probe for clues than in a criminal's dreams? But there are all sorts & shapes of dreams, including nightmares!"
Note: Where I've used "probe", magazine uses "prove". With that, the sentence didn't make sense to me - so I "fixed" it.
- [ss] Edward W Ludwig's "Spacemen Die at Home": "One man's retreat is another's prison ... it takes a heap of flying to make a hulk a home!"
- [ss] Donald Colvin's "The Celestial Hammerlock": "This bigtime space promoter could get the Horsehead Nebula in a flying mare - but pinning a planetoid is tougher!"
- [novel serial - part 2/3] Robert A Heinlein's "The Puppet Masters": "The one thing worse than fighting an enemy completely human or completely alien is - fighting one that is both!"
