Amazing Stories, May 1964 (Volume 38, No. 5)

Amazing Stories, May 1964 (Volume 38, No. 5) Lowest used price: $3.75
Author: Cordwainer Smith

Amazing Stories was an American science fiction magazine launched in April 1926 by Hugo Gernsback's Experimenter Publishing. It was the first magazine devoted solely to science fiction. Before Amazing, science fiction stories had made regular appearances in other magazines, including some published by Gernsback, but Amazing helped define and launch a new genre of pulp fiction. Amazing was published, with some interruptions, for almost eighty years. The title first changed hands in 1929, when Gernsback was forced into bankruptcy and lost control of the magazine. In 1931, Bernarr Macfadden purchased the assets of the Mackinnon-Fly magazine publishers (in Canada), which gave him the pioneering sci-fi pulp Amazing Stories and several other titles. They were published under the Teck Publications imprint. Amazing became unprofitable during the 1930s and in 1938 was purchased by Ziff-Davis, who hired Raymond A. Palmer as editor. Palmer made the magazine successful though it was not regarded as a quality magazine within the science fiction community. In the late 1940s Amazing began to print stories about the Shaver Mystery, a lurid mythos that explained accidents and disaster as the work of robots named deros. The stories were presented as fact, and led to dramatically increased circulation but also widespread ridicule. Palmer was replaced by Howard Browne in 1949, who briefly entertained plans of taking Amazing upmarket. These plans came to nothing, though Amazing did switch to a digest format in 1953, shortly before the end of the pulp-magazine era. A brief period under the editorship of Paul W. Fairman was followed, at the end of 1958, by the leadership of Cele Goldsmith. Despite her lack of experience she was able to bring new life to the magazine, and her years are regarded as one of Amazing's most creative eras. She was unable to arrest the declining circulation, though, and the magazine was sold to Sol Cohen's Universal Publishing Company in 1965.

The Corianis Disaster & Deathworld

The Corianis Disaster & Deathworld Lowest new price: $5.00
Lowest used price: $12.95
List price: $12.95
Author: Murray Leinster

Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is “The Corianis Disaster” by one of science fictiondom’s all-time best authors, Murray Leinster. The Corianis was traveling between the planets Kholar and Maninea, and she was carrying the Planetary President of Maninea and important political figures from Kholar. Physicist Jack Bedell knew at once that something was wrong when he found he could see the stars at a time when they were supposed to be in overdrive. But the disaster really shaped up when they apparently reached their destination! What they found upon landing was that there were two Corianis’, each with its own set of duplicate people. And these people weren’t copies or imitations—they were exactly the same. Queerly, there were two exceptions, Bedell and a lovely young woman, Kathy Sanders. But why had they been excluded from this fantastic scientific anomaly? And what was the planetary government to do with two identical leaders—each with his own mind and his own voice? Join science fiction maestro Murray Leinster as he spins a taut tale of science and physics gone mad. The second novel is “Deathworld” by Harry Harrison. The planet Pyrrus had a gravity nearly twice of Earth; its severe axial tilt created extreme weather patterns, and it was constantly besieged by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. Having two moons, Pyrrus’ tides caused constant flooding, sometimes emersing live volcanoes with disastrous results. Even worse, virtually all living things on the planet were predatory. A human being didn’t have a chance. The larger animals were quite capable of killing a man instantly and the smaller creatures were filled with deadly poison. Even the plant life was carnivorous. However, men had discovered that Pyrrus contained many valuable ores, so settlements had been established. But because of the planet’s mercilous environment, its few settlers were engaged in an endless struggle against the teaming forces of a planet gone mad. So, naturally, all of this begged the question: was it worth it?
