Synopses & Reviews
Two complete novels of interstellar adventure:
Earthblood by Keith Laumer and Rosel George Brown chronicles one man's struggle to find his destiny in a future where the very existence of Earth is a legend that few believe. Humanity was defeated by the hostile Niss millennia ago and humanity had scattered across the galaxy. Roan had been raised by aliens, but he knew that he was human and nothing was going to stop him from finding his lost homeworld, not even the space fleets of the Niss.
Sibyl Sue Blue by Rosel George Brown is the story of cigar-smoking Sergeant Sibyl Sue Blue, one of the toughest cops that the criminals on a future Earth hope never to meet. But she's not after burglars, muggers or drug pushers now. Her husband has disappeared on a mission to the planet Radix and she's going to get him back, one way, or another, and any unfriendly aliens had better get out of her way, if they know what's good for them. .
Plus, for the first time in one volume, all of Keith Laumer's other stories of the alien Niss, as well as a generous assortment of stories by Rosel George Brown, who was a master of pointedly humorous adventure.
Science fiction adventure, ranging from the grim to the wildly comical in a generous volume by two masters of the form.
About the Author
Keith Laumer was a Captain in the US Air Force and later an officer in the Diplomatic Corps, serving all over the world, giving him a solid background both for his fast-moving adventure stories and his satirical comedies of Retief. He was known as one of the top writers of SF adventure.
Rosel George Brown attracted attention during her unfortunately brief writing career with an impressive number of short stories in all the leading science fiction magazine which combined science fiction and irresistible humor, ranging from the dryly witty to raucous slapstick. She was nominated for a Hugo Award in 1959, and her first novel, Sibyl Sue Blue, was widely and favorably reviewed, but her writing career came to an untimely end in 1967 when she died of cancer at the age of 41.
