We, the Machine & Planet of Dread
Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels. The first novel, We, the Machine is an outstanding, previously unheralded science fiction classic by Gerald Vance. It was the machine that provided everything. No one had ever thought it possible. It was the ultimate creation of science, a vast underground machine that knew no limits. It provided everything for the people of Mid-America-ample food, expensive clothing, luxurious dwellings-everything. Whatever you wanted was provided to you in a matter of minutes, sometimes seconds. And the Machine did it without ever making errors or oversights. It was a marvel of scientific perfection. Then one day it started making mistakes-and the world trembled. Gerald Vance was a house name used by numerous authors for pulp science fiction magazines back in the '40s and '50s. In this case we believe it might have been either Paul W. Fairman or Rog Phillips. We the Machine certainly reads like a Fairman or a Phillips story, and the plot is in the same vein as many of their favorite themes. But regardless of who its true author may have been, We the Machine is a forgotten science fiction gem of the first magnitude. The second novel is by one of sci-fi's best storytellers, Dwight V. Swain. Planet of Dread is about a slithering horror from outer space. Something was amiss on the distant planet of Lysor. Read More chevron_right
