Philip E. High


Space Captain / The Mad Metropolis

Ace Double M-Series: Book 135

Philip E. High
Murray Leinster

Space Captain

Interstellar chase of a space buccaneer.

The Mad Metropolis

Given: Earth 400 years from now--a rotten society in which mankind is doomed to die out.

A solution to the problem--an ultra-intelligent computer to govern humanity.

One man of seemingly average intelligence, but with an incredible I.Q. potential.

And you have: A corrupt society turned into a world where there is not corruption, because Mother Machine knows what's best for her human children and does it. Where that same all-powerful computer is rapidly turning men into zombies.

And where the world's only hope turns out to be one outlawed not-average man.

Result: An unusual science-fiction thriller.
