OPUS: #024
Title: Evans of the Earth-Guard
Author: Edmond Hamilton
Year: 1930
Type: short story
“The grim black rocket, whirling and dipping with an astounding swiftness, was endeavoring to bring the twisting little craft into the lines of its guns.”
“Evans of the Earth Guard,” by Edmond Hamilton, is a story in which we learn some of the problems that man will face if communication is ever established with the moon, and commerce with lunar cities is ever started. He shows how, in the future, we will have to have an “earth guard” to protect commerce and transportation between the earth and its satellites. — Popular Mechanics Magazine, vol. 53 no. 4, April 1930, p. 168.

「洗練と技巧をもって、カーティス・ニュートンの冒険に取り組んだ。新しい作品はオリジナルの長編よりもよくできており、もし<<キャプテン・フューチャー>>の冒険がこれだけだったら、登場人物たちも通常思われているよりも、もっと立派な存在として記録されることになっただろう。物語の広がりも地球規模となり、最後の三篇(中略)では、人類、生命、大宇宙の起源と本質に関する秘密が解明されてゆく」 – マイク・アシュリー著 ; 牧眞司訳『SF雑誌の歴史:黄金期そして革命』(東京創元社, 2015)p. 26.

OPUS#072 Eternal Cycle, The

Title: The Eternal Cycle
Author: Edmond Hamilton
Year: 1935
Type: short story
We are almost sorry that author Hamilton did not write this story into a novelette, because the tremendous idea behind it could well support a much longer story.
In this story is propounded a theory so fantastic that you have never heard anything to equal it – but, at the same time, it is not only very logical, but easily understandable. These three qualities are seldom mixed to such a masterful balance as they are in this short story.
Here, indeed, is an excellent example of the type of story we are looking for under our revolutionary policy – so original and utterly different that it will live in your memory much longer than others thirty times its length.
