A stubborn mankind unwilling to colonize space is forced into the endeavor by computer conscription. Follow four such conscripts on their journey to the stars. Also, aliens attack.
Hawksbill Station, the prison at the end of time: a gulag in the Precambrian era for political extremists and protesters. A captivating story laden with concepts that demand introspection.
Continuing my Silverberg binge, Planet Stories’ newest omnibus, The Planet Killers. Three halves of three Ace Doubles, space operas with espionage and intrigue akimbo. As a fan of mystery/crime novels, I consider this a good thing.
Another vintage Robert Silverberg yarn, an extended version of a tale I’ve already read. Two warring alien species planting sleeper agents on Earth, crosses and double-crosses, a telepathic unborn fetus… what’s not to like?
Collection of Robert Silverberg’s earliest stories, very pulpy, sometimes tacky, but all of them entertaining. If you can overlook their nature, they’re fun, exciting, and thrilling.
