A trio of novellettes by an excellent science fiction writer of yesteryear. |
"A planet that was literally bald, completely covered by sand and devoid of life...or so the stranded spaceman thought until he saw the huge menacing girders whose origin and purpose he could not begin to fathon. "
"A gold locket containing a picture of a girl, found in millenia-old ruins on a planet some hundreds of light years from Earth--threatens the existence of the entire human race. " A lost space team lands on a deserted planet, entirely unprepared for the strange world's one citizen...a great white ameoboid monster, hiding in wait to wreak its fury on any intruders.
