Mutant

Henry Kuttner

Henry Kuttner's 1953 novel of a despised community of telepaths hiding from society carries echoes of the Holocaust and the postwar DP communities. Kuttner, the most inventive and gifted short story writer in all of the science fiction, bridged this novel from five novelettes in ASTOUNDING: four were published that atomic year, 1945.

Robots Have No Tails

Henry Kuttner

Galloway Gallegher is his name. He's the greatest inventor since Leonardo Da Vinci and Tom Swift. With toothpicks and twine, a few empty beer cans and some stray isotopes he can make--well, anything imaginable. (And what an imagination he has!) He's the most delightful "scientist" in science fiction.

In Science fiction literature there's one element which is all too rare: humor. Not often does a writer succeed in combining the seriousness of science with the more light-hearted side of life. Lewis Padgett, creater of that delightfully whacky genius Gallegher, is one writer who succeeds. And what a rib-tickling success it is!

But it isn't that Gallegher is merely a screwball. Not at all. As a scientist, he's tops. It's just that Gallegher suffers (if you can call it that) from an insatiable mania--the very thing which releases his subconscious mind and turns him into such a remarkably creative genius. The only trouble is he's spending half his time fighting his way out of a hangover, trying to figure out just what he did invent. The results will astonish and amuse you--just as they do Gallegher himself.

And then, besides our hero, there's his friend Joe. Joe, with his unmorbid Narcissus complex, is more than human--a particularly fascinating fact inasmuch as Joe, after all, is just a robot. But what a robot!

This is a book packed with adventures, gadgets, and fun--which you're certain to enjoy.

  • The Proud Robot

The Dark World

Henry Kuttner

Henry Kuttner's Sword and Sorcery classic returns to print at last! World War II veteran Edward Bond's recuperation from a disastrous fighter plane crash takes a distinct turn for the weird when he encounters a giant wolf, a red witch, and the undeniable power of the need-fire, a portal to a world of magic and swordplay at once terribly new and hauntingly familiar. In the Dark World, Bond opposes the machinations of the dread lord Ganelon and his terrible retinue of werewolves, wizards, and witches, but all is not as it seems in this shadowy mirror of the real world, and Bond discovers that a part of him feels more at home here than he ever has on Earth.

The Mask of Circe

Henry Kuttner
C. L. Moore

From on high of Mount Olympus comes an adventure in mythology, penned by a Hugo-nominated master of the genre.

Jay Seward remembered a former life in a land of magic, gods, and goddesses--a time when he was Jason of Iolcus, sailing in the enchanted ship Argo to steal the Golden Fleece from the serpent-temples of Apollo. But one night the memories became startlingly real, as the Argo itself sailed out of the spectral mists and a hauntingly beautiful voice called: "Jason... come to me!" And suddenly he was on the deck of the Argo, sailing into danger and magic.

The Time Axis

Henry Kuttner

Called to the end of time by a being they knew only as The Face of Ea, four adventurers from the twentieth century faced a power that not even the super-science of that era could meet - the nekron, negative matter, negative force, ultimate destruction for everything it touched. It seemed hopeless to expect them to win this battle for the fate of the universe - but between them they had a power they themselves could not suspect.

Fury

Keeps: Book 2

Henry Kuttner

The Earth is long dead, blasted apart, and the human survivors who settled on Venus live in huge citadels beneath the Venusian seas in an atrophying, class-ridden society ruled by the Immortals - genetic mutations who live a thousand years or more. Sam Reed was born an immortal, born to rule those with a normal life-span, but his deranged father had him mutilated as a baby so that he wouldn't know of his heritage. And Sam grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and the law, thinking of the Immortals as his enemies. Then he reached the age of eighty, understood what had happened to him and went looking for revenge - and changed his decaying world forever.
