E.C Tubb Idunas Universe Chapter One It was late afternoon when Dumarest reached the crest and he paused to look down the gentle slope of the valley and at the village it contained. 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 ...

E. C. Tubb The Winds of Gath Chapter One He woke counting seconds, rising through interminable strata of ebony chill to warmth, light and a growing awareness. At thirty-two the eddy currents had warmed him back to normal. At fifty-eight his heart began beating under its own power. At seventy-three the pulmotor ceased helping his lungs. At two hundred and fifteen the lid swung open with a pneumatic hiss. He lay enjoying the euphoria of resurrection. It was always the same, this feeling of ...

E. C. Tubb The Jester at Scar Chapter One In the lamplight, the womans face was drawn, anxious. Earl, she said. Earl, please wake up. Dumarest opened his eyes, immediately alert. 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 ...

E. C. Tubb Lallia I On Aarn a man was murdered and Dumarest watched him die. 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 ...

E. C. Tubb Technos Chapter One At night the streets of Clovis were twisting threads of shadowed mystery faced by high walls and shuttered windows, looping and curving as they followed the dictates of some ancient plan. 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 ...

E.C Tubb Zenya Dumarest of Terra 11 Chapter One She was tall, with a mass of golden hair raised and crested in an aureole above her head. Thick strands ran from her temples, cut and shaped into upcurving points which accentuated the high bones and slight concavity of her cheeks. Her jaw was round, with a determined hardness, and her lips were full, the lower pouting in betraying sensuosity. Her eyes were deep-set, glowing amber, wide-spaced beneath arching brows, their upward slant giving her ...

E. C. Tubb Eloise Chapter One There was nothing soft about the office. It was a vast chamber designed on functional lines, bleak in its Spartan simplicity the sound-proofing which covered the walls, floor and roof a dull, neutral grey, devoid of distracting color or decoration. Only the blazing simulacrum which hung suspended in the air at the center of the room gave a richness to the place a depiction of the galaxy at which Master Nequal, Cyber Prime, stared with thoughtful interest. It was a ...

E. C.

At day the monster was revealed as a conglomeration of men and machines which tore into the flank of a mountain, delving deep, gutting ancient stone and pulverizing rock for the sake of the metal it contained. A dual operation, the metal helping ...

E.C Tubb Jack of Swords Chapter One At sunset the sky of Teralde was painted with vibrant swaths of brilliant color minute crystals of air-borne dust refracting the light so that the entire bowl of the firmament looked as if some cosmic artist had spilled his palette in a profusion of inspired genius. An eye-catching spectacle but one which, for Dumarest, had long ceased to hold charm. He walked through the streets gilded with dying light, past tall houses fashioned of stone, the windows small, ...

He sprawled beneath the jagged stump of a broken tree, blood puddling the dirt around his hips, the uniform he wore ripped and torn, burned and stained. In the flame-shot darkness his voice was a tormented whisper. Earl Here. Dumarest knelt, feeling the squelch of mud, reaching out with his left hand to grip the others shoulder. Relax, Clar. Youll be all right. Dont lie to me, Earl. The pain-wracked voice held a bitter ...
