Book Description

The Convulsing Earth had shattered Civilizationand Something Was Moving In To Pick Up The Pieces

Mal was heading across an America ravaged by worldwide earthquakes when he ran into a dying stranger who babbled of men who weren't really men. The stranger had an unusual gold coin in his pocket which no expert could identify, and soon, Mal was to discover some things who wanted that coin were on his trail....

Steve Dravek awoke in a nightmarish city and immediately had to fight for his life against ruthless organ-stealing gangs. His last memories are of a vanished time from over a century ago. And someone is hunting him through the dark city, someone who seems to know him better than he knows himself....

The commander of the spaceship fleet that just annihilated the enemy armada has decided to become world dictator unless his second in command can stop him....

A national test condemns a man to a life of unskilled labor, unless he can find a way around the system....

A full-length novel, and a host of short novels and more fill an action-packed volume by the master of science fiction adventure.

About the Author

A legendary creator of space opera and military science fiction adventures, Keith Laumer was a captain in the U.S. Air Force and later an officer in the U.S. diplomatic corps, serving throughout the world--all of which activity provides a solid background for his crackling adventure tales as well as his justly famous epic satirical comedies featuring Retief, the galaxy's canny, two-fisted diplomat. Also among Laumer's best-loved creations: are the Bolos, gigantic tanks controlled by artificial intelligences who fight to protect mankind against both alien and human enemies.
