Criminal Negligence

by Jesse Francis McComas

Everyone (almost) is moving to Mars, so whom shall we leave behind?

Has some merit but written especially for the bleeding-heart liberal type, and dishonestly so.

Cubs of the Wolf

by Raymond F. Jones

Perfect story for vegan pacifists but less suitable for war-mongering right wing extremists like me.

Death Wish

by Robert Sheckley

A better story of the type that Astounding and others once used to fill the gaps between more popular novels and serials. Has some interest but mainly a gimmicky short.

The Defiant Agents

by Andre Norton

I looked into many Norton novels in the past but never got past page five before abandoning the efforts due to boredom. This time I promised myself to finish one of them, if only to determine why others enjoyed her work.

No hopeógot to about page twelve before quitting. She writes as you would expect a librarian to do, with some of the slowest openings in the explored portion of the galaxy.
