The orphan had always known she wasn’t what people described as ‘normal’. Whether merely precocious or a mutant freak, she had always been able to link minds with an equally weird mutated lion and skip into the worlds of the fourth dimension.
What the heck, it sure beat staying in school on Earth – that is until she realized that some of her fellow dimension-hoppers from other planets had more in mind than just a romp in the swamp.
They were launching an inter-dimensional war of imperialism, and she alone held the secret which could save her home world – if she could only escape the truant officer long enough to pull it off!
Flatland follows the journeys of A. Square, a mathematician and resident of the two-dimensional Flatland, where women – thin, straight lines – are the lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status.
Through strange occurrences that bring him into contact with a host of geometric forms, Square has adventures in Spaceland (three dimensions), Lineland (one dimension) and Pointland (no dimensions) and ultimately entertains thoughts of visiting a land of four dimensions-a revolutionary idea for which he is returned to his two-dimensional world.
The ability to see other-dimensional rings that float in Earth’s atmosphere was a late mutation of a few space-age humans. Daryl was under the care of the institution for muters, and she had discovered that if you jumped through the right ring at the right time it would land you in another dimensional world and another shape.
Spaceling is the story of Daryl’s desperate efforts to unravel the mystery of why she was being held captive and of what was really going on in a certain alien dimension. Because she was sure it was all bad and that someday everyone would thank her for the revelation.
But instead everyone was engaged in a wild effort to hold her down, to keep her on this Earth, and to keep the world simply intact!
Fighting for Mars means a battle with the Lobants, a formidable enemy, robot yet human, whose origins are shrouded in a terrifying Martian mystery. Ace rocketship pilot John Delmar, on a dangerous and unlicensed space light to the fabulous planet, solves the answer to the swarming scourge of Mars in a story that possesses all the compulsion of a three-dimensional horrific…
As the mighty spaceship Skylark roamed the intergalactic spaceways, scientist Richard Seaton and his companions found a world of disembodied intelligences. A world of four dimensions where time was insanely distorted and matter obeyed no terrestrial laws – where three-dimensional human intellects had to fight hard to thwart malevolent invisible mentalities…
Full colour three dimensional television is a target at which engineers will soon be aiming. The technical obstacles are bound to be numerous, and it is also possible that other difficulties of an entirely different nature will arise – as Herrick soon finds out. Herrick had already achieved success on a limited scale, but his work led to curious results when the newly-developed receiver started picking up what appeared to be transmissions from an alien world…
Bursting right through the four-dimensional travel zone of subspace, Tellurian psiontists make an amazing discovery on the other side.
Beyond the bounds of subspace, a parallel universe is cruelly ruled by a violent, murderous empire, the Justiciate, where psiontists are ruthlessly hunted down and fed to giant eagles.
And within the Justiciate are lodged spies and traitors, dedicated to its overthrow – evil agents of the proud Garshan ‘master race’.
The arrival of the psiontists from Tellus triggers off a truly spectacular space adventure…
The search for new sources of energy led one man to an accidental breakthrough into a strange parallel world. It was apparently deserted and might have been a good place to prospect until the finder panicked. He tried to shut the dimensional crack that led into that other place.
But the breakthrough had prematurely awakened that world’s most predatory inhabitant from hibernation – and in raging fury THE SPINNER slipped through to find itself alone and hungry in an American city loaded with good things to eat – people!
A GAME OF CAT…AND CAT?
Movie star Jason Carter is on vacation in Peru. All he wants is a break, but what he finds is a lost civilization of extra-dimensional Incas bent on conquest of the entire world!
Nor is Carter alone. His allies include a bloodthirsty Amazon, an archaeologist, a bank robber, three alien vegetables and a scoop-crazed gossip columnist – and not one of them knows what to do next.
Only Carter’s cat seems unruffled by the growing danger. In true feline fashion, she acts like she’s in charge of the planet.
Maybe she is.
Darryl Whitesmith was engaged upon a new line of research at the Horological Central Institute. He was familiar with the famous saying of Minkowski: “From henceforth space in itself and time in itself sink to mere shadows and only a kind of union of the two preserves an independent existence.”
But he had no idea to what extent that saying would be borne upon him. It was difficult for Darryl’s mind to make the transition from subjective to objective time, but once that transition had been made there was no turning back. It began as a simple experiment, an experiment which concerned space-time, relativity and the four dimensional continuum.
Whitemith’s first indication that something was wrong was when the clock on the wall raced backwards in a blur of speed to fast to follow. The laboratory faded, day and night blended into a welter of greyness.
He was back in the Jurassic Age – but not for long. The machine was still dragging him back into the remote epochs of the Past…
