Armchair Fiction presents extra large paperback editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel, “The Ship from Infinity,” is a wonderful deep space thriller. What were the secrets of the “death ship?” Deep in the void it lurked, a mysterious giant of metal, shaped into a vessel so vast it was beyond belief. And those who saw it—died! But the inner treasures and technological secrets of this massive, dead spaceship were thought to be worth incalculable wealth, and an alliance of space salvagers would take any risk to lay first claim on her—even at the cost of their lives. This terrific Edmond Hamilton tale is a true forgotten gem, filled with the kind of action and intrigue that made him one of the most beloved science fiction authors of the 20th Century. The second novel is “Takeoff.” Next stop…the moon! Out in the remote California desert Mike Novak was sitting on a powder keg. He was working on the biggest thing since the atom bomb! Hired to build a mock-up fuel tank for a mock-up spaceship, Mike discovered he was looking at a design that could actually work! A design that would soon turn his life upside down. Here is a wildly exciting story torn from newspaper headlines—the story of man’s first triumphant step into outer space. It is an unforgettable, nerve-clenching novel of the first moon-rocket and the men who dared to build it—told by one of the great masters of science fiction…C. M. Kornbluth.
