Lester Del Rey – Victory

From above came the sound of men singing. Captain Duke O’Neill stopped clipping his heavy black beard to listen. It had been a long time since he’d heard such a sound—longer than the time since he’d last had a bath or seen a woman. It had never been the singing type of war. Yet now […]

Lester Del Rey – The Sky Is Falling

The name came swimming through utter blackness, sucking at him, pulling him together out of nothingness. Then, abruptly, he was aware of being alive, and surprised.

Lester Del Rey – Badge of Infamy

The air of the city’s cheapest flophouse was thick with the smells of harsh antiseptic and unwashed bodies. The early Christmas snowstorm had driven in every bum who could steal or beg the price of admission, and the long rows of cots were filled with fully clothed figures. Those who could afford the extra dime […]
