Only 1 left in stock


Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel in this edition is Milton Lesser’s great outer space intrigue tale, “Son of the Black Chalice.” It had been twenty-five years since John Hastings, Sr. first found the Chalice. Only a small number of beings in the whole of the Solar System were chosen to benefit from the power of this amazing discovery, and the ever-growing discord that arose from the ranks of the “unworthy” had become a decidedly dangerous thing. In this engaging sequel to “Secret of the Black Planet,” John Hastings, Jr., hated and hunted by many, looks for answers to his origins. With the help of the Japanese-Venusian half-breed, Suuki, and the vivacious Susan Bentley, young Hastings is determined to put an end to the hostilities facing his friends and family. His amazing quest soon takes him on a journey across the galaxy in search of answers that only the creators of the Black Chalice can ultimately provide. The second novel is Evelyn E. Smith’s “Sentry of the Sky.” There had to be a way for Sub-Archivist Clarey to get up in the world—but this way was right out of the tri-di dramas. He was offered a job as a spy on the planet Damorlan. Earthmen had co-existed with many alien planets in the past, but Damorlan had special interests. Damorlan’s population, while not overly intelligent, was extremely creative. And its culture, while not cultivated, was rich with desired merchandise easily marketed on Earth. And its population, while not Homo Sapiens, looked remarkably human. It was this last quality of the Damorlanti that caused fear in the Terran government, for no general citizen of Earth, or any other planet for that matter, had known that humanoids existed outside of Terra—and the Terran government wanted to keep it that way. Join veteran science fiction author Evelyn E. Smith as she spins an engaging web of interplanetary conspiracy.
