Overview

A Trio of Legendary Science Fiction Masterworks! in Alan Nourse's Star Surgeon, Dal Timgar, of all his medical class, was denied assignment to a general practice patrol ship going out from Hospital Earth to serve the medical needs of the Galactic Confederation. it seemed to him that his eight years of study in the great medical center of the galaxy had ended in failure. He had worked hard and stood at the head of his class, but Dal was different from his medical colleagues in one important way. Born on a planet of a distant star, he was the first son of an alien race to attempt to become qualified physician of Hospital Earth. In George O. Smith's The Fourth "R", meet Jimmy Holden. An advanced teaching machine had given him a mutant brain, vastly superior to that of other human beings. But the machine hadn't taught he what he needed to know to survive among his fellow men and women. Yet he held knowledge that could turn everyone into super men and women. Or destroy them. Then read not one, but two classic science fantasy novels by Lester Del Rey. In The Sky is Falling, Dave Hanson was summoned from Earth by magic to help an alternate Earth named Terah, whose sky has shattered, and he may be the one man in all the universe who can restore it. But science and sorcery, beautiful women, and fantastic monsters are just the beginning of his problems. And in Del Rey's Badge of Infamy, Dr. Daniel Feldman, made an outcast by Earth's dictatorial government, is sentenced to join other outcasts and shipped to Mars in what seems a premature and doomed attempt to colonize the red planet. To live they will have to do the impossible--with time running out with each passing moment. Read all these sfmasterworks for the price a single eBook in this bargain omnibus edition.

    A wonderful introduction to the Golden Age of Science Fiction

    When the writers of today's science fiction talk about the authors that have influenced them, you will often find at least one of these authors mentioned. This book includes true Classics. Books that first explored concepts that are now accepted pillars in the Sci-Fi world. Education, medicine and alien contact/influence. Well conceived and written, thought provoking, excellent staring places to examine the hopes and dreams of 50 years ago and compare to our present and possible futures.
