Humbolt dropped inside the stockade, exulting. For two hundred years his people had been waiting for the chance to fight the mighty Gern Empire with bows and arrows against blasters and bombs!

The Mysterious Island of Space
Tom Godwin was the George R.R. Martin of his day. His stories don't always have happy endings. He could kill off a main character at anytime. He is most famous for the short story The Cold Equation, which some claim to be the number one Science Fiction short story of all time. This is dated and there is no character development, it is an epic and the main character is the human race. I loved it when I read the hard copy and I love the recording. It might seem slow in a couple of places, but the overall story is uplifting. Anyone who wants to claim to be a Science fiction Aficionado must be well versed in Tom Godwin. He is not as well know as Heinlein, Clarke or Asimov, but some may say his small contribution to the genre is more profound.
