E. C.

Then, as eyes adjusted to the relative dimness, things took on a hard reality. The light was from the sun shining through transparencies set in the curved roof, the stars were drifting motes of dust, the monsters heaps of crates, bundles, bales, the murmuring ...

E. C. Tubb The Temble of Truth Chapter One Karlene shivered. Thirty dozen perlats had been slaughtered to provide her furs yet still she felt the cold. An illusion-born of snow and ice and the pale azure of an empty sky. The visual effects overrode the electronic warmth cosseting her body and she lifted her hands to draw the soft hood closer about her face. Cold Hagen had noticed the gesture. Are you cold No. Then- Nothing. An answer too curt and she expanded it as she swept a hand at the vista ...

Facile explanations and none of them true a bird would have risen, there was no wind to stir a flower and the sunlight streamed high to leave the valley in shadow. Halting, he plucked a leaf and chewed it as he studied the terrain. Above and before ...

The circus of Chen Wei was gone now, leaving only an expanse of torn and barren ground, a scatter of debris, the crusted surface of a fetid lagoon. A monument to emotional waste, which Avro pondered ...

The walls of the cabin seemed to swirl in the faint glow of artificial dawn, then it was over and Dumarest sat on the edge.of his bunk, sucking air into his lungs, conscious of the sweat dewing face and naked torso. The product of nightmare born of fatigue induced by too many watches maintained too long. And yet He leaned back to rest his shoulders against the bulkhead, ...

To Master Elge, Cyber Prime, the fabrication was the reverse of a tomb, the ovoids far from being coffins, but the desecration ...

Ice coated the mounds and gullies, frosted the humped buildings, gave a transient beauty to the harsh lines of functional machines. A thin, white blanket covered the torn and ravaged soil, snow filling hollows and softening peaks, a dry powder which held treachery. Dangerous. Hart Vardoon kicked at the accumulation, a white ...

A small, neat, tidy place with snug houses set in close proximity, the walls washed with a variety of pastel shades. The thread of a narrow river wound between banks thick with reeds and flowering shrubs, the stone bridge crossing it mottled and stained with lichens, softened with time. The square was clean, dotted with ...

The city itself was a place of brooding silence broken only by the sough of the wind from the plains beyond, the discordant chiming of prayer bells suspended from the peaked and gabled roofs. Pale lanterns hung like ghostly stars, their ineffectual light augmented by the haze from ...

It was a thing quickly done in a place close to the landing field: a bright tavern of gleaming comfort just beyond the main gate of the high perimeter fence, a cultured place of softness and gentle lighting snugly set on a cultured world. The raw violence was all the more unexpected because of that. Dumarest saw it all as he stood with his back to a living mural in which naked women swam in an emerald sea and sported ...

What is it Men, she said, moving outside. I thought I heard noises from the street, screams and the sound of laughter. The guttering flame of the lamp threw patches of moving shadow across her face as she straightened from the side of the bed. Cruel laughter, it had an ugly sound. He frowned, listening and hearing ...
