The ship is manned by the heroic Dane Thorson and his crew of intrepid space traders. On Sargol, they enter into complicated negotiations with the inhabitants of this strange planet.

  君曰:「代立不忘社稷,君之道也;錯法務明主長,臣之行也。今吾欲變法以治,更禮以教百姓,恐天下之議我也。」

  公孫鞅曰:「臣聞之,『疑行無成,疑事無功,』君亟定變法之慮,殆無顧天下之議之也。且夫有高人之行者,固見負於世;有獨知之慮者,必見訾於民。語曰:『愚者闇於成事,知者見於未萌。民...

The Second Voice –by: Mann Rubin

First Page:

We proudly enter a new name in the science fiction sweepstakes. This is Mr. Rubin's initial appearance in the field. His literary efforts to date add up quite handsomely, we think. QUOTE. I have sold to the TV show, TALES OF TOMORROW and two literary quarterlies have published my fiction. Last year I won the Stephen Vincent Benét Award for my one act plays produced at Stanford University. UNQUOTE. The reading pleasure is yours.
