THE BLACK GALAXY

ROD CANTRELL, whose trick of teleportation does considerable world-saving, emerges under the able guidance of author Murray Leinster as the chief figure in THE BLACK GALAXY.

His other-world gadget has enabled him to become the pioneer interplanetary explorer of Earth and he is infuriated with a politics-ridden Space Project Committee. He and his secretary, pretty Pat Bowen, visit the Stellaris, first real space-ship, which Cantrell has been designing, before he is kicked upstairs to a desk job he doesn't want.

Construction is still going on and, through a worker's accident, the ship, still incomplete and utterly unarmed, is sent flashing into the "other" space, a universe of complete darkness, in which its hyper-drive operates.

Cantrell has been removed from his job as chief space-explorer because of his insistence, thanks to a booby-trapped pyramid of strange design he found on Calypso during one of his previous space-flights, that some intelligent species, hostile to all other space-travelers and their worlds, has long been roving the star lanes. At some time, perhaps a few thousand years ago, they have utterly wiped out an advanced Martian civilization and left the planet dead and gutted behind them.

The Stellaris and its passengers—hardly a crew in any sense of the word—are virtually a space-derelict and forced to rely upon their wits and ingenuity, as well as Cantrell's brilliant leadership. They are tracked down by the alien race, who travel in immense pyramids and are utterly foreign and vicious to all human concepts.

Before the final battle is fought amid the shining stars Cantrell and his little group have traveled through a journey that makes this novel one of the most scientifically ingenious as well as stirring science fiction stories ever to emerge from the Leinster typewriter.

THE FORGOTTEN PLANET

THE MAD PLANET

The possibility that our planet will some day be dominated by the insect world has been admitted by our greatest entomologists, and the possibility of this is not half so remote as one might think.

Some of our deepest thinkers believe that it is not only possible, but most probable, that this may happen, or possibly has happened in the past.

It is a story tremendous in its possibilities, and the author has written it with such a facile pen, that you cannot lay the story aside until you have come to its conclusion.

THE RED DUST

The world, in a far distant future, is peopled with huge insects and titanic fungus growths. Life has been greatly altered, and tiny Man is now in the process of becoming acclimated to the change. We again meet our hero Burl, but this time a far greater danger menaces the human race. The huge insects are still in evidence, but the terror they inspire is as nothing compared to the deadly Red Dust.

NIGHTMARE PLANET

Once again, Burl experiences magnificent adventures against a colorful background, but to the whole the author has added philosophical and psychological observations that give this story a flavor seldom achieved in science-fiction.

THE STRANGE INVASION

The Gizmo Invasion was unique in space and time. Not even the dawn of the Atomic Age with its Earth satellite sequel had stirred men more profoundly, or posed a greater challenge. They were spawned in a vast wilderness … and the war they waged against Man challenged the miracles of modern science. It was the deadliest kind of biological invasion … because the Gizmos seemed indestructible and were not even animals in a strict sense. They lived only to kill . . . .

Then, the whole fighting fleet of the United Nations is caught in Kreynborg's marvelous, unique trap, in "Invasion".
