WEB OF THE NORNS By Harry Harrison and Katherine MacLean The Three Norns, weavers of mens destiny, sit in the dusty hall of eternity with the glittering tapestry of the dimensions around them. Their aged fingers move tirelessly over the strands twisting, weaving and joining in an infinity of combinations. Each strand is a life. As they guide the strands they guide the lives. Their voices rise and fall in a constant murmur: they pass the single eye, one to the other, to watch the weaving of this ...

War with the Robots Harry Harrison A WORD FROM THE HUMAN AUTHOR WHEN MOST PEOPLE HEAR THE WORD robot, they have a reflexive metal picture of a mechanical man, all creaking joints and glowing eyes.

His robots Rossums Universal Robotswere flesh and blood, though artificially made, and identical with normal placental-people in every way except for their complete lack of ...

ACCORDING TO HIS ABILITIES Harry Harrison Just look at that gun barrel big enough to poke your finger into, Aram Briggs said, and did just that. With an unconsciously lascivious motion he pushed the end of his grimy middle finger into the muzzle of the bulky hand gun and rotated it slowly.

Within seconds the glow spread, quickly changing from red to white as the fractional heat increased.
