FROM THE BACK COVER:

DAY OF THE MINOTAUR

In DAY OF THE MINOTAUR American readers will at last have an opportunity to enjoy the imaginative genius of Thomas Burnett Swann, a writer whose works have been compared with the marvel-packed sagas of J.R.R. Tolkien, the sweeping adventure-tales of Mary Renault, and the sheer story-telling magic of Jack Vance and Edgar Rice Burroughs.

This is the novel of Eunostos, the last of an ancient and powerful race of bull-men, of the Achaean conqueror Ajax, and the beautiful Thea, known as the Beast Princess. You will not soon forget there characters, nor the unusual Bears of Artemis, the treacherous, bee-like creatures called Thriae, and the rest of the humans and non-humans who come to final battle in the thunderous War of the Beasts.

Here is a world of wonder and excitement that will grip your imagination from first page to last.

Tubb, E.C. – Moon Base

Tubb, E.C. - Moon BaseGenre: Science Fiction
Publisher: Ace
Number: F-293
Publication Date: 1964
Edition: 1st Edition
Cover Artist: Unknown

FROM THE BACK COVER:

Felix Larsen had been sent to Luna Station One to investigate “something odd on the Moon.” There was no proof, not even a concrete basis for suspicion, yet there was a feeling so wrong about the place that Security had hinted of traitors.

On the first day at the sealed station beneath the Moon’s crust, Felix had become violently ill. He awoke from a drugged sleep with no memory of the intervening time lapse. Now he had to be doubly careful because his secret might be out, and somewhere in the station – or somewhere out there on the alien Moon itself – an unknown intelligence was waiting for the critical moment.
