Great, classic science fiction. 3 novels in one book, these are truly classic science fiction tales, originally written in the 1950's. The goal of the Planet Stories line is to reprint lost classics, and they did well selecting these. By today's standards these stories are short, simple and not heavy on technology. They are straightforward and fun to read. ( )

In The Plot Against Earth, Special Investigator Lloyd Catton's efforts to crack a ring of "hypnojewel" traffickers uncovers a galaxy-wide conspiracy. And in One of Our Asteroids Is Missing, when miner John Storm stakes claim to an asteroid with a king's ransom of rare minerals, he's set for life-or would be, if his discovery didn't also mark him for death.… (more)
