The Planet Killers
Three Novels of the SpacewayseBook - 2015
"This trio of early short novels by Grand Master Robert Silverberg is straight-up pulp science fiction at its finest As a young man, Robert Silverberg was a science fiction prodigy, turning out top-flight stories in the blink of an eye. Though written quickly, Silverberg's early prose already showed evidence of the literary and imaginative qualities that would make him a giant in the field. Here are three of his best early works. In " The Planet Killers, after Earth's supercomputer calculates that the inhabitants of the planet Lurion will destroy Earth in sixty-seven years, Roy Gardner is sent to stop them--by any means necessary. In " The Plot Against Earth, Special Investigator Lloyd Catton's efforts to crack a ring of "hypnojewel" traffickers uncovers a galaxy-wide conspiracy. And in " One of Our Asteroids Is Missing, when miner John Storm stakes claim to an asteroid with a king's ransom of rare minerals, he's set for life--or would be, if his discovery didn't also mark him for death.".
