Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is "Conquest of the Planets" by one of the undisputed masters of science fiction, John W. Campbell. Mankind on Earth had fallen into a state of physical and moral decay, so much so that the human colonists on all the other planets of the Solar System cut ties with their mother world. Hundreds of years later, though, a rejuvenation of humanity was starting to take place on Earth. It started deep inside a deserted underground city where a young boy, Bruce Lawry, discovered a crumbling, ancient building-a library, with rows of books filled with the knowledge of Earth's past greatness. As the years went by, Bruce and his followers slowly regained the knowledge it would take for mankind to raise itself to the heights of greatness once again. But one thing stood in the way-the decadent despots that ruled Earth's cities. They had long ago sentenced most of mankind to a life of slavery in cities carved out beneath the surface. But now, armed with new science and new weaponry, the people of Earth's underworld were ready to fight for their freedom. The second novel is "The Man Who Annexed the Moon" penned by sci-fi vet, Bob Olsen. It was only natural that Professor Banning should want to expand his knowledge of outer space and the solar system. So the moon, being of particular interest to him, became his next "project." He enlisted two assistants: one was the most famous pilot of the time, and the second was a man so smart he could build just about anything the professor could dream up. Together they built a rocket ship designed to take them deep into space. This is the story of three brave men as they set out on the longest journey ever undertaken by man-a trip to the moon and back. Join golden age sci-fi author Bob Olsen as he spins a truly ingenious tale of lunar adventure and daring travel across the infinite vacuum of outer space, first published in Amazing Stories way back in 1931.
