Rocannon's World / The Kar-Chee Reign

Ace Double G-Series: Book 574

Ursula K. Le Guin
Avram Davidson

Rocannon's World

Earth-scientist Rocannon has been leading an ethnological survey on a remote world populated by three native races: the cavern-dwelling Gdemiar, the elvish Fiia, and the warrior clan, Liuar. But when the technologically primitive planet is suddenly invaded by a fleet of ships from the stars, rebels against the League of All Worlds, Rocannon is the only survey member left alive. Marooned among alien peoples, he leads the battle to free this newly discovered world and finds that legends grow around him as he fights.

The Kar-Chee Reign

It was the distant future of Earth, and the mother planet of a glaxy-wide empire had been forgotten by her far-flung colonies. Forgotten, tired, old and stripped of her ores and natural fuels, Earth and the scattered bands of humans left behind were totally unprepared for the invasion of the strange, monstrous Kar-chee from the depths of the stars.

The Kar-chee had come to strip Earth of the few natural resources the planet had left--to crack the marrow of the aged planet and scavenge whatever of worth was left there. It was a massive, planet-wide operation in which continents were sunk and oceans drained, and if the tiny, insignificant humans died in these holocausts, what did that matter to the Kar-chee?

It mattered to the humans... and, at last, they began to fight.

Man's sovereignty in his galaxy was challenged by a single madman and the super-weapons of the Dawnmen, the mysterious aliens from the unexplored vastness of the galaxy's center. Bronston, alone, had to find a way to stop them.

Inherit the Earth

The human race was rushing towards the brink of destruction, as huge global forces massed to strike at each other with all the awesome power of modern war weapons. war threats screamed from headlines, radio and television... and in a small, seemingly unimportant city in Africa, a group of men worked on a discovery and a plan that was to affect Earth's entire future.

They had developed a new type of creature - androids who were only the size of dolls, and apparently limited in intelligence. Yet they seemed to have a strange effect on the personalities of humans.

So far there were only a few score of the androids - but in time they were fated to inherit the Earth.

The Ultimate Weapon

RED SUN RISING:

The star Mira was unpredictably variable. Sometimes it was blazing, brilliant and hot. Other times it was oddly dim, cool, shedding little warmth on its many planets. Gresth Gkae, leader of the Mirans, was seeking a better star, one to which his "people" could migrate. That star had to be steady, reliable, with a good planetary system. And in his astronomical searching, he found Sol.

With hundreds of ships, each larger than whole Terrestrial spaceports, and traveling faster than the speed of light, the Mirans set out to move in to Solar regions and take over.

And on Earth there was nothing which would be capable of beating off this incredible armada -- until Buck Kendall stumbled upon THE ULTIMATE WEAPON.

The hilfs fear the Earthmen, whom they think of as witches and call the farborns. But hilfs and farborns have common enemies: the hordes of ravaging barbarians called gaals and eerie preying snow ghouls. Will they join forces or be annihilated?

If wishes would only come true... how often has every human being thought that? How wonderful life would be if only we could have everything we ever dreamed of!

But the man who invented the dream-machine turned out to be the worst enemy humanity ever encountered! The dream became as real as the reality--and yet remained a figment of the imagination. And thereby the very foundations of civilization were undermined. Why strive--when you could get it all without effort?

Reality Forbidden is the unusual novel of that came afterwards. Of the world in which on the most rigid of terror kept the cities standing, and of the man who dared escape that world, to find the last place on earth where dreaming was not prohibited, and where one could not only have one's cake, but eat it as well!

These Savage Futurians

Don't think new thoughts, don't improve anything, don't wander over the next hill.... These were the commandments for the men and women of the experimental village - one of those carefully nurtured settlements established after the collapse of world civilization.

The rules were made by the benevolent Masters of the Island - and they had to be obeyed. To disobey was to be destroyed. But Robert Ventnor, villager with a dangerous high quotient of curiosity, was the exception. He fled - and evaded liquidation.

But he fled right into the hands of These Savage Futurians and thereby supplied the key that could blast apart civilization's second chance and destroy the world once and for all.

The Double Invaders

The invasion of Scarta in the all-powerful name of the Space Empire of Zorgan was on. Everything went as predicted. The cities were taken, there was no opposing spacefleet. And yet everything went wrong.

For Scarta was a planet different from any other the arrogant Earthmen had invaded. Its peaceful people were tougher, its unarmed cities more impregnable, and its blue skies less placid than any world had any right to be.

Nebula Alert / The Rival Rigelians

Ace Double G-Series: Book 632

A. Bertram Chandler
Mack Reynolds

Nebula Alert

The Iralians were humanoid and techically free citizens of the Galactic Empire. But as slaves they were prized above all others, for they had the unique capacity to transmit acquired knowledge through heredity. And so when the space mercenary Wanderer was hired by GLASS (Galactic League for the Abolition and Supression of Slavery) to take a cargo of Iralians home it was going to be a simple task!

For one thing, they'd be hunted by interstellar slavers for their priceless passengers.

For another, the Iralians themselves had other ideas which included mutiny and high treason.

And for the third and worst, they were too close to the Horsehead Nebula, whose capacity for warping time, space and the dimensions was a permanent Red Alert for all spacecraft.

The Rival Rigelians

The team from Earth had the task of raising backward planets to the home world's high level. The situation on Rigel was this:

"The most advanced culture on Rigel's first planet is to be compared to the Italian cities during Europe's feudalistic yeas. The most advanced of the second planet is comparable to the Aztecs at the time of the Spanish conquest."

"These planets are in your control to the extent that no small group has ever dominated millions before. No Caesar ever exerted the power that will be in your collective hands. For half a century, you will be as gods and goddesses!"

But the Rigelians were themselves descended from the lost colonists of old Earth and they could learn their lessons as fast as they could be taught.

In fact, they could even teach their teachers a thing or two. And therein lay the peril the professors from space never dreamed of.
