This first-rate collection of thrilling adventures in space includes two novelettes and two short stories by one of today's most gifted science fiction writers.

The Martian Way — When a ruthless Earth politician threatens the pioneers on Mars by cutting off their water supply, a daring spaceman takes a desperate journey to ice-ringed Saturn.

Youth — Two innocent boys almost precipitate inter-planetary warfare when they attempt to make pets out of some queer creatures they discover and cage in a country barn.

The Deep — A scout from a dying civilization is shocked by what he learns about the strange surface life on Earth.

Sucker Bait — Scientists investigating the strange death of a thousand men and women on a killer planet are saved from extinction by the fantastic memory of a youth they despise.

Full of breathless suspense and intriguing speculations about the world of the future, The Martian Way is immensely entertaining reading.
