- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
CLASSIC PULP SF THRILLS! Two more "book length novels" of adventure in future centuries from the pages of the magazine famed for its vivid, fast-moving space operas, the legendary Planet Stories. .In Hugo nominee In Edwin L. Graber's "Flame Jewels of the Ancients," Proud Terra and the 1000 suns would be drifting embers if Bro-Donal kept the Flame-Jewel of the Ancients. The tiny golden sphere, blazing with terrible energy spelled Galactic Empire at last to his outlaw horde, once they had learned to tap its limitless power. They were grimly amused, therefore, when Captain Glayne of the Stellar Guardians dropped innocently out of subspace to view their mighty prize. Glayne's only hope was the laughing, green-eyed Niala, who betrayed men with a heart colder than the blue vapors of Jupiter. Raymond F Jones' "Seven Jewels of Chambar": scattered, the jewels flamed like distant suns, maddening the beholder. United, held in a grasping palm, they bestowed a godlike power that could rule the Solar System. But, with the jewels' flame-lances still white-hot from dealing death, Ormondy and the fabulous Firebird learned the terrible price of that power. "Strong stuff. A powerful read. Anyone who loves sf adventure owes it to themselves to read Planets of Adventure." SF Sagas.
