The World of Null-A / The Universe Maker

Ace Double D-Series: Book 31

A. E. Van Vogt

The World of Null-A

It is the year 2650 and Earth has become a world of non-Aristotelianism, or Null-A. This is the story of Gilbert Gosseyn, who lives in that future world where the Games Machine, made up of twenty-five thousand electronic brains, sets the course of people's lives. Gosseyn isn't even sure of his own identity, but realizes he has some remarkable abilities and sets out to use them to discover who has made him a pawn in an interstellar plot.

The Universe Maker

Did you ever hear of the Inter-Time Society for Psychological Adjustments? Well, neither had Morton Cargill in 1953 when he accidentally killed a girl. A year later that very girl turned up, apparently alive, and announced that the mysterious society had condemned him to death! Cargill's astounding adventures began when he escaped the execution chamber to find himself in the far future. Three conflicting societies were hunting for him, to use him in their own desperate schemes. There were the Floaters, a nation of aerial vagabonds. There were the Tweeners, who dreamed of world conquest. And finally, interwoven through everything, were the sinister figures of the Shadow Men-supermen without visible substance.

The Weapon Shops of Isher

By the year 4784, the Empire of Isher ruled the universe and an impetuous willful girl ruled the empire. Into this epoch, the most scientifically powerful period humanity ever knew, a time-staggering bombshell was tossed. It came in the form of a man from today, a victim of a conflict which was as old as that empire and which now threatened to be the end of both Isher and its worlds.

Gateway to Elsewhere

Tony Gregg was just an ordinary everyday American until the day he came into possession of an old Barkut coin. He knew that it was more than just a collector's curio because there was no such place on any map of Earth, past or present. He learned then that it could be used as a key - a key to a GATEWAY TO ELSEWHERE.

One Against Eternity

Did their world rest on a pariah's shoulders? Robert Hedrock had been declared a kill-on-sight outcast, even by those who had once been his own faction. Neither they not their empress foe suspected that he alone could provide the solution to their deadliest cosmic crisis.

The Other Side of Here

A flick of the wrist - and whole cities plunged into a void of lifelessness. Steve Waldron plunged to the very center of a dead city and gaped at a truth he could not believe. What could he do against so fearsome a force that threatened to engulf the whole nation?

Empire of the Atom / Space Station # 1

A. E. Van Vogt

Empire of the Atom

Atomic War had destroyed the world. History and records had been lost; the few war-shocked people who were left could not even recall what had started the destruction. But even these desperate circumstances could not change the basic nature of man.

Out of the still-smoking ruins came one who was stronger and more ruthless than the rest. From his plans to rule the universe grew the seeds of the last great war of all, the one that would finally wipe man off the face of Earth.

Space Station # 1

The Space Station floated up out of the Big Dark. Lieutenant Corriston had come to see its marvels, but he soon found himself trapped in unexpected terrors.

The grim reality was that an unknown, unsuspected outer space power had usurped control of the artificial moon. A beautiful woman had disappeared; passengers were being fleeced and enslaved; and, using fantastic disguises, imposters from - SOMEWHERE - were using the station for their own mysterious ends.

Siege of the Unseen / The World Swappers

Siege of the Unseen

THE THREE EYES OF EVIL

"The crash was over, the car on its side. Slade sprawled dizzily on his back, while something warm trickled from his forehead into his left eye. He wiped it away, and saw with a start that it was blood. The skin was torn raggedly..."

"A third eye was plainly visible. The eyelid of it was closed by a surplus of sticky matter, but abruptly he grew aware that it was pulsing with a vague perception of light..."

At first it was a grotesque discovery, when the accident revealed that young businessman Michael Slade was a bizarre freak -- a man with three eyes. But the impact of what it meant to see with three eyes was even more macabre. For Slade, that shocking third eye was his entry into a strange new dimension of terror and adventure -- a fearful new world that would wrap itself about him forever!

The World Swappers

The inhabited galaxy was caught in the crushing vice of a struggle for power. The political titans of the planets of mankind were making their bids for supremacy.

The contestants: Cornice, man of strange powers, authority in the spheres of the intellect; and Bassett, man of money-power, financial and business wizard.

As the association of human worlds drew near the teetering edge of internal revolutions; one of these men would be in a position to triumph. The only thing that neither side could foresee was that there were Others hovering among the stars, loo ling for new worlds to conquer!

Earth's Last Fortress / Lost in Space

Ace Double D-Series: Book 431

A. E. Van Vogt
George O. Smith

Earth's Last Fortress

It looked like a perfectly innocent store front, a volunteer enrollment office for young idealists who wanted to help the desperate forces of a young democracy overseas win their civil war. The young girl who sat at the desk inside was attractive, sympathetic, and would see that you got your passage safely.

Lost in Space

Commodore Ted Wilson's intuition told him right! He should never have let his fiancee, Alice Hemingway, take off on Space Liner 79 - the flight that fate had singled out to change the destiny of the galaxy!
