The Wailing Asteroid

by Murray Leinster

The first two chapters seemed to get off to a slow start, and I almost gave up on the book. I'm glad I didn't, because the rest of the book was riviting.

The science is wrong, of course, but so what. The book is Science FICTION! It tells an improbably tale of adventure and excitement as could only be done in the glory days of SF.

The author as an excellant grasp, by the way, on the nature of Man and on politics in general, and these are skillfully weaved throughout the story, producing some humorous moments here and there.

Treat yourself to this book. It's free.

The Colors of Space

by Marion Zimmer Bradley

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. It is not the typical pulp fiction novel with good guys and bad guys. It has depth in a very easily digested package. And rather than a simple shootum up space opera, we have a well presented story about a young student, his journey to manhood, the lessons he taught several star systems, and a message for us all.
