Book Overview

Women. Liquor. Power. Women. Liquor. Power. That is Fanner Marston's mantra--his reason for being--and while he knows a little about the first and a lot about the second, he may well be on the verge of learning everything there is to know about the third. Power. He may, in fact, be about to uncover the key to gaining absolute control over the entire universe.

Mix of good sci-fi shorts

This is a few short stories bundled together, each independent. The first story was my favorite, with a great last sentence (won't spoil it for you). A man seeks the "great secret" of a old, advanced civilization in an abandoned city that will bring him riches. Which of course, is not quite what he expects. Any one of these short stories would win a modern sci fi contest, no problem. Amazingly timeless. Recommended.

Unexpected ending

This story took me by surprise. From the moment I started to read it, I knew something was up and this propelled me through the story. You will not forget this sci-fi pulp classic.
