Navy Day (1954)
The Army had a new theme song: "Anything you can do, we can do better!" And they meant anything, including up-to-date hornpipes!

The Ethical Engineer (1963)
That mores is strictly a matter of local custom cannot be denied. But that ethics is pure opinion also...? Maybe there are times for murder, and theft and slavery....

The K-Factor (1960)
Speed never hurt anybody--it's the sudden stop at the end. It's not how much change that signals danger, but how fast it's changing....

The Velvet Glove (1956)
SF writer and editor Harry Harrison explores a not too distant future where robots--particularly specialist robots who don't know their place--have quite a rough time of it. True, the Robot Equality Act had been passed--but so what?

The Repairman (1958)
Being an interstellar trouble shooter wouldn’t be so bad … if I could shoot the trouble!

Toy Shop (1962)
The gadget was strictly, beyond any question, a toy. Not a real, workable device. Except for the way it could work under a man's mental skin....

Arm of the Law (1958)
At one time--this was before the Robot Restriction Laws--they'd even allowed them to make their own decisions....

Planet of the Damned (1962)
Hugo nominated in 1962, originally published in Analog Science Fact-Science Fiction as "Sense of Obligation." Brion has just won the Twenties, a global competition to test achievements in 20 categories of human activities -- but before he can enjoy his victory he's forced to leave his homeworld to help salvage Dis, the most hellish planet in the galaxy.

The Misplaced Battleship (1960)
It might seem a little careless to lose track of something as big as a battleship... but interstellar space is on a different scale of magnitude. But a misplaced battleship--in the wrong hands!--can be most dangerous.

Deathworld (1960)
Some planet in the galaxy must--by definition--be the toughest, meanest, nastiest of all. If Pyrrus wasn't it ... it was an awfully good approximation!
