Armchair Fiction BLACK MAN’S BURDEN & THE GIANTS FROM OUTER SPACE

Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels.  The first novel is the highly acclaimed “Black Man’s Burden” by one of the twentieth century’s best science fiction authors, Mack Reynolds.  “Black Man’s Burden is a unique sci-fi masterpiece.  It looks at the racial plight of the African continent, while weaving an engaging tale of science fiction adventure and intrigue.  It delves into racial themes that were virtually unheard of in the sci-fi writings of the era in which it was written.  Reynold’s central character, Homer Crawford, takes on the role of both noble science fiction hero and racially sensitive sociologist.  It is an engaging, thought-provoking tale that also keeps you on the edge of your seat.  “Black Man’s Burden” was first published as a two-part serial in John W. Cambell’s Analog science fiction digest magazine, back in 1961.  Ace Books later teamed it with its remarkable sequel, “Border, Breed, Nor Birth” as an Ace science fiction double in 1972.  “Black Man’s Burden” received an honorable mention during the 1962 Hugo Awards presentations for best novel.  The second novel is Geoff St. Reynard’s “The Giants from Outer Space.”  Grim terror lurked in the void of deep space.  Pinkham and his men were unaware of any potential danger in the star system they were visiting.  There were a total of seven planets, none of which seemed too extraordinary.  But what perked their interest the most was a field of asteroids that lay between the fourth and fifth planets.  In all of man’s interstellar travels only a handful of asteroid belts had ever been discovered.  This newly discovered field consisted of thousands of small planetoids, which were probably the remains of some former planet that had long ago been destroyed by some cosmic cataclysm.  Pinkham and his men, as a matter of standard procedure, turned their instruments on this newly discovered field with limited scientific expectations.  After all, no intelligent life had ever been discovered in an asteroid belt.  But what they found was beyond their wildest expectations and turned a dry deep space expedition into a cosmic nightmare.
