Sargasso of Lost Starships & The Ice Queen

Sargasso of Lost Starships & The Ice Queen Lowest new price: $12.00
Lowest used price: $12.94
List price: $12.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is “Sargasso of Lost Starships” by one of the most heralded sci-fi authors of all time, Poul Anderson. The Terrans wanted Basil Donovan for a long interstellar voyage into one of the most feared regions of outer space. They needed him to guide them into the Black Nebula—a place from which few starships had ever returned. But Donovan hated the Terrans. They had conquered his planet and turned his life as a member of the Royal Family into a shambles. However, there was more to it than just hating the Terrans. Donovan had been one of the few men to ever come back from the Black Nebula alive. And since his return, his grip upon his own sanity had been tenuous at best. He had been a captive in the Black Nebula, the captive of a race of bizarre alien creatures whose mental powers were far beyond those of ordinary human beings. There was also a beautiful female alien waiting for him there, a green-eyed alien whom he both hated and loved. And he knew she would never let him go home again—alive. The second novel “The Ice Queen” was penned by one of the most prolific science fiction authors of the golden age of pulp magazines, Don Wilcox. An adventurous tale of a lost world, hidden beneath the ice. When Jim McClurg signed on to be ship’s artist on the Aurora, he thought he was embarking on a long rescue mission, a lengthy sea voyage into ice-infected Arctic waters in search of a lost fur trader, missing some five years. And all he had to do was paint lovely pictures for his eccentric employer. However, the Lady Lucille Lorruth wanted more than to find her missing husband. Somewhere in these frozen wastes was a fortune in furs, left in a secret cache several years earlier. A fortune she coveted perhaps even more than the life of her husband. But guarding them was a strange, beautiful girl—a girl who rode a fantastic white tiger with intelligence and seemingly super scientific powers. Together they guarded the entrance to a fantastic lost world hidden beneath vast layers of glacial ice.

Swordsman of Lost Terra & Planet of Ghosts

Swordsman of Lost Terra & Planet of Ghosts Lowest new price: $12.00
Lowest used price: $63.06
List price: $12.95
Author: Poul Anderson

Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is tale of Earth in the far-off future, “Swordsman of Lost Terra” by science fiction great, Poul Anderson. It was thought to have been a planetary disaster whose roots could be traced all the way into outer space. Earth had gone through a cataclysmic change and one side of the planet, like its moon, was now perpetually facing the sun. The great civilizations of Earth had nearly been destroyed, and the few survivors who remained had fallen back to primitive ways. However, the men of Killorn held a weapon that none others had…the pipe of the Gods. This fantastic instrument spelled death for any enemy who stood against it. Master sci-fi author Poul Anderson spins a science fantasy tale of Earth in the far future. It is the story of the Men of Killorn, and how their leader, Red Bram, led them against the glowing-eyed hordes of the Genasthi, who had invaded from the lands of perpetual darkness; and how Kery, son of Rhiach, played the pipe of the gods once more.The second novel is from the man who gave us “Empire of Jegga,” David V. Reed. “Planet of Ghosts” deals with the undead secret of an awful world of ghosts—ghosts with the power to switch men’s souls. The name of the planet was Amanas, and it had wondered through deep space for centuries. Underneath its ghostly-white layer of clouds were the remains of an ancient civilization. A civilization whose beings seemed to live forever—the llanu, great winged beings whose origins traced back to ancient Earth. But there was also something else on this planet, something more terrifying than any sane man could ever imagine. But a mad, vengeance-seeking outcast from Earth conceived of harnessing the power of this strange horror—a power to be unleashed upon the unsuspecting citizens of Earth.
