BEYOND LIES THE WUB

The slovenly wub might well have said: Many men talk like philosophers and live like fools.

THE GUN

Nothing moved or stirred. Everything was silent, dead. Only the gun showed signs of life . . . and the trespassers had wrecked that for all time. The return journey to pick up the treasure would be a cinch . . . they smiled.

THE SKULL

Conger agreed to kill a stranger he had never seen. But he would make no mistakes because he had the stranger's skull under his arm.

THE DEFENDERS

No weapon has ever been frightful enough to put a stop to war — perhaps because we never before had any that thought for themselves!

MR. SPACESHIP

A human brain-controlled spacecraft would mean mechanical perfection. This was accomplished, and something unforeseen: a strange entity called —

THE PIPER IN THE WOODS

Earth maintained an important garrison on Asteroid Y-3. Now suddenly it was imperiled with a biological impossibility — men becoming plants!

SECOND VARIETY

The claws were bad enough in the first place — nasty, crawling little death-robots. But when they began to imitate their creators, it was time for the human race to make peace — if it could!

THE EYES HAVE IT

A little whimsy, now and then, makes for good balance. Theoretically, you could find this type of humor anywhere. But only a topflight science-fictionist, we thought, could have written this story, in just this way....

THE VARIABLE MAN

He fixed things — clocks, refrigerators, vidsenders and destinies. But he had no business in the future, where the calculators could not handle him. He was Earth's only hope — and its sure failure!

THE HANGING STRANGER

Ed had always been a practical man, when he saw something wrong he tried to correct it. Then one day he saw IT hanging in the town square.

TONY AND THE BEETLES

A ten-year-old boy grows up fast when history catches up with the human race.

BEYOND THE DOOR

Larry Thomas bought a cuckoo clock for his wife — without knowing the price he would have to pay.

Did you ever wonder at the lonely life the bird in the cuckoo clock has to lead—that it might possibly love and hate just as easily as a real animal of flesh and blood? Philip Dick used that idea for this brief fantasy tale. We're sure that after reading it you'll give cuckoo clocks more respect.

THE CRYSTAL CRYPT

Terror was rampant on the final Mars-Earth run. For black-clad Leiters were on the prowl ... and the grim red planet was not far behind.
Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (Deluxe Illustrated E-Reader Edition)

by Edwin A. Abbott

$0.99 (available world-wide*)

Available on the Kindle, iPod, iPad, PC, etc. from amazon.com
Available on the Sony e-Reader and Kobo reader from kobo.com
Available on the Apple iPad, iPod and iPhone from Apple iTunes
Available on the Nook from Barnes & Noble

First published in 1884, Edwin A. Abbott's classic novella is many things: a biting social satire on Victorian society, an exhortation to literally think outside the box (or, if you're a privileged Spacelander, outside the cube), and above all a testament to the universal quest for knowledge and the inherent beauty and purity of mathematical truth. Flatland tells the story of "A SQUARE," a mathematician living in the Second dimension, known as Flatland, whose perceptions of his Universe are turned upside down when he is visited by a Sphere from the Third dimension, known as Spaceland. "A SQUARE" also muses on life in Lineland and Pointland.

The "Deluxe Illustrated E-Reader Edition" of Flatland is the edition you've been waiting for; a beautifully formatted e-reader edition of the classic novella Flatland, including all original illustrations, a table of contents, original footnotes, and bonus footnotes.

"The best introduction one can find into the manner of perceiving dimensions." — Isaac Asimov.

TRIO: Three Short Fiction Stories by Ted Courtright.

"AUTHOR, AUTHOR": A story about a famous author who chooses to hide behind a pen name and a ghost writer he hired as a "stand in" for him. This noted author is in for more trouble from his "ghost" and his fiancee than he bargained for.

"FROM HERE TO KASHMIR": This true story deals with an American Air force pilot who faces the hazards of flying over the highest mountains in the world, i.e, "The Hump," during WWII. Our hero flies out of an American Air base in the beautiful "Vail of Kashmir," in India. His dangerous mission is to fly supplies into an isolated base, surrounded by the Japanese, in China.

"NIGHTLIFE IN HIROSHIMA": This is a true account about some "creative" members of a WWII Navy Construction Battalion, who, idled by war's end, decide to provide entertainment for bored and homesick American occupation troops stationed in Japan.
