James H. Schmitz

Science Fiction / Fantasy

MEET TRIGGER ARGEE….Half a block from the shopping center, a row of spacers on planet-leave came rollicking cheerily toward her…. Trigger shifted toward the edge of the sidewalk to let them pass. As the line swayed up on her left, there was a shadowy settling of an aircar at the curb to her right.With loud outcries of glad recognition and whoops of laughter, the line swung in about her, close. Bodies crowded against her, a hand was clapped over her mouth. Other hands held her arms. Her feet came off the ground and she had a momentary awareness of being rushed expertly forward.There was a lurching twist as the aircar shot upward.SHE’S ABOUT TO ENTER THE MYSTERY OF HER LIFE, IN LEGACY!!

The Winds of Time

The Winds of Time

James H. Schmitz

Science Fiction / Fantasy

James H. Schmitz was a heck of a writer, and this story -- "The Winds of Time" -- is fascinating stuff. Star ships, aliens from the future, time travel, romance, cannibalism, pet humans and mute-but-brilliant aliens. . . . and, of course, it's got a hero who solves every problem by being smarter and trickier and better-prepared than we'd ever imagine being. But what would you expect? This story first appeared in John W. Campbell's Analog. Analog heroes did it with their brains. Us? We have to work. Schmitz is best known as a writer of "space opera" and for his strong female characters (such as Telzey Amberdon and Trigger Argee) who didn't conform to the "damsel in distress" stereotype typical of science fiction of the time.

In the Wrong Paradise, and Other Stories

In the Wrong Paradise, and Other Stories

James H. Schmitz

Science Fiction / Fantasy

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
