How else explain the sudden disappearance of a vessel beneath a mysterious curtain of foam? The writhings of thousands of maddened fish trapped in a coffin-like area of ocean? What monsters gorged at the bottom of the Luzon Deep and what were their plans? Radar expert Terry Holt and the crew of the Esperance had to devise a weapon against the horrifying creatures.

    A dilemma in the Nebula! Two spaceships meet in deep space. How do they establish trust, not only between their two crews, but also between their home worlds? A classic puzzle. The only way to warn home would be to return, and how do you know you were not being followed? Trade would be desirable, but how can you base an exchange of knowledge on unfounded trust?

    There was no life on the asteroid, but the miles of rock-hewn corridors through which the earth party wandered left no doubt about the purpose of the asteroid... What race had built this stronghold? What unimaginable power were they defending themselves against? Why was it abandoned? There was no answer, all was dead. But not quite all. For in a room above the tomblike fortress a powerful transmitter beamed its birdlike, fluting sounds toward earth.

    Humans have expanded to myriad worlds throughout the galaxies but they have found that the only way for colonies to be self-sustaining was to reproduce the total ecology of their home world; the original Earth. This meant bringing the entire ecosystem, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Viruses as well as grass, goats as well as stink bugs, and allowing the whole mixture to ultimately produce an inhabitable world for humans. But what happens when this system is not properly supervised?

    "Joe Kenmore heard the airlock close with a sickening wheeze and then a clank. In desperation he turned toward Haney. 'My God, we've been locked out!' Through the transparent domes of their space helmets, Joe could see a look of horror and disbelief pass across Haney's face. But it was true! Joe and his crew were locked out of the Space Platform. Four thousand miles below circled the Earth. Under Joe's feet rested the solid steel hull of his home in outer space. But without tools there was no hope of getting back inside. Joe looked at his oxygen meter. It registered thirty minutes to live."

    "Operation: Outer Space" is a science fiction novel by Murray Leinster. It was first published in 1954. The novel introduces the first interstellar flight, financed by making it into a television show! In fact, this very funny work is much more of a biting satire on the world of television, the media and the rich than a regular space opera but with some elements of sci-fi still there of course.

    Harry Shaw performs this classic science fiction from master writer Murray Leinster. Something lurks in the depths of the Luzon Deep off the Philippine Islands. Something unearthly. Perhaps sinister. Entire ships disappear. Schools of fish go mad. Denizens of the deep come to the surface, perhaps on a mission. But from what? And why? Radar expert Terry Holt and the crew of the Esperance seek answers to these questions, and perhaps don’t want to the know the truth.

    A primitive band of humans, the survivors of 40 generations of a crashed space liner, struggle to survive on a planet where giant insects rule, the result of an incomplete seeding experiment because of a lost punch card. Separated from his tribe, young Burl, the main character of the story, begins to think in new ways and eventually leads his people to a better life. The audiobook is particularly interesting in that it has almost no dialogue between the characters, yet is so well written that you don't care.
