The Idols of Wuld & Planet of the Damned Lowest new price: $12.95
Lowest used price: $24.54
List price: $12.95
Author: Milton Lesser

Armchair Fiction presents illustrated, extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel is “The Idols of Wuld” by one of the more underrated authors of the 20th Century, Milton Lesser. The spacemen had enslaved the entire galaxy—star system after star system, planet after planet—all had fallen before their mighty wrath. And now, centuries later, nearly all memories of these conquered worlds’ former greatness had been erased from memory. Only the Scholars, armed with staff and disc and a knowledge of the ancient Rites, knew of the former histories of their worlds. But with the unscheduled landing of alien spaceships it became clear that a new plan was afoot. Scholars and their like were being gathered up from conquered worlds all across the galaxy. Erak the Gaunt of the planet Wuld was one such Scholar, and soon he and five of his comrades were hurtling across the void in an enemy ship. But where were they going…and why? It was a difficult question to ponder, let alone answer—especially considering there was a traitor in their midst… The second novel is an all time classic; Harry Harrison’s “Planet of the Damned” was nominated for a Hugo award in 1962. There was no question about it, Dis was a harsh, inhospitable, dangerous world; a planetary madhouse filled with unimaginable perils. And though it hardly seemed possible, the Magter made it even worse. The Magter were completely different from the rest of the intelligent species on Dis. They were argumentative, bloodthirsty—always looking for planetary conquest instead of peace. They might have been human once, but they were something else now. The Magter seemed to have one basic desire: to kill…kill everything—themselves, their planet, even the universe if they could. Brion Brandd was sent to the planet Dis at the eleventh hour. His mission was a desperate one—to save Dis if possible. But before long it looked as though he was going to preside over its annihilation…

Stars and Stripes in Peril (Stars & Stripes Trilogy) Lowest new price: $17.89
Lowest used price: $2.23
List price: $25.95
Author: Harry Harrison

In a war room in Washington, William Tecumseh Sherman and General Robert E. Lee huddle together and plan their next, joint military operation. In the jungles of Mexico, Ulysses S. Grant is locked in brutal combat with the best of the British Army. And in the heart of the new American South a fragile peace is threatened . . .

In the dazzling alternate history of Harry Harrison, this is the world as it stands in 1863. Just three years before, a titanic Civil War loomed in America. But an incident involving a British ship and two Confederate spies changed everything. As Abraham Lincoln defied Britain's Lord Palmerston, tensions between the two nations boiled overæand Her Majesty's Navy unleashed an attack on American soil aimed at bolstering the Confederate cause. The results were catastrophic. A stunned North and South put aside their differences and a new kind of war erupted, with Americans fighting side by side against the British on two fronts: in the South and on the Canadian border. Now, Britain has been defeated and America is struggling to keep its union togetheræuntil another blow is struck.

It comes from Mexico, where elite units of Her Majesty's Armyæincluding the famed Gurkha fightersæare massing for a possible attack through Texas. Into the gauntlet Lincoln sends his chosen angel of death, General Grant. But the weary president knows that two centuries of British power will not be ended with a single battle. So his top soldiers, including Lee and Sherman, plan the most daring naval invasion ever launched: an assault on British soil itself. And in a secret that must be protected by an underground army of spies and secret agents, the U.S. will invade the Emerald Isleæto set the Irish free at last.

Filled with real characters on both sides of the conflict, Stars and Stripes in Peril is the new masterwork from one of our most provocative authors. Harry Harrison brilliantly examines the machinations that drive our world, the choices that shape the future, and the people and passions that compose nations both great and small. Venturing beyond a fascinating question of what if, Harrison shows how technology and world politics had the power to shape history's first great World Waræhalf a century before it began.

Harry Harrison has been publishing science fiction for half a century; this novel appears in 2000, the year of his 75th birthday. His 1998 Stars and Stripes Forever was a foray into alternative history at the time of the U.S. Civil War. An opportunistic British invasion is so badly bungled that it unites warring Union and Confederate forces against the common enemy, and the course of events is rousingly changed.

Now it's 1863 and perfidious Albion is making a comeback via the Pacific, establishing a Mexican beachhead and planning attacks on united America's "soft underbelly" in the Gulf of Mexico. Gurkha and Sepoy troops build roads while sweaty white officers express nostalgia for England: "I despair of ever seeing her blissfully cold and fog-shrouded shores again."

An early coup of misdirection makes the British advance seem unstoppable--but America forges ahead with new guns and naval armor, and General Robert E. Lee devises an audacious counterblow. What better way to disrupt Britain's wicked schemes than to strike at her own rebellious province of Ireland?

Harrison, an American, perhaps overdoes the lofty dignity of figures like Abraham Lincoln, while showing British politicians with their full complement of warts. But the breathless, headlong action sweeps you away as the battle is planned and at last joined. Even hardened English patriots will feel a sense of wish-fulfillment at the possibility that America may solve the "Irish Question" for them. This is a rapid-paced, slightly slapdash, and unfailingly energetic adventure in alternate history--all great fun. --David Langford,

An uber-snarky intergalactic James Bond, if Bond were a family man and had a seemingly unlimited supply of just the right gasses, smoke-bombs and weaponry, and had a profound distaste for killing people. A quick fun read. Will seek out previous installments of the Rat's adventures. Harrison throws in a bunch of subtle goodies such as references to books concerning political dirty tricks as The Education of A Prince by Mac O'Velly. Snark.
