Armchair Fiction presents extra large paperback editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel, “Peril of the Starmen” is an alien invasion story by Kris Neville. They came from the deepest regions of outer space. In three “spider ships,” they landed near our nation’s capital, Washington D. C. And when they descended from their ships they met the people of Earth with broad smiles and promises of inter-galactic friendship. It was truly a great day for all the people of Earth. Unfortunately, it also spelled their inevitable doom.. The second novel, “The Forgotten Planet” is a chilling Murray Leinster tale of Nature’s mislead madhouse. Beneath dense gray clouds through which no sun shone lay a forgotten planet. It was a nightmare world of grotesque and terrifying animal-plant life. Gigantic beetles, spiders, bugs and ants filled the putrid, musty earth—ready to kill and devour anything in sight. There were men amidst this horror—men who cringed and ran from the ravening monsters and huddled in the mushroom forests at night. Burl was one of these creatures. But one day inspiration hit Burl. He would find a weapon—he would fight back. And with this idea the first step was taken in man’s most desperate flight for freedom in this most horrible of all worlds. But it was only a first step.
