Junkyard Planet by H Beam Piper

Book Description

This novel had its genesis in a much shorter story called "Graveyard of Dreams" (Galaxy, 1958) Piper expanded it to book length, and it appeared in 1963 as Junkyard Planet. Ace later renamed the book The Cosmic Computer for its paperback appearance. This edition returns the book to Piper's original title, Junkyard Planet. Conn Maxwell returns from Terra to his home world of Poictesme, dubbed "The Junkyard Planet" because of all the military equipment left behind after the last war. Conn claims he has found the location of Merlin, a military super-computer rumored to have been left behind. But is Merlin real, or just a myth? And will Conn's knowledge of the computer save Poictesme -- or tear his world apart?

Time Crime by H Beam Piper Time Crime, Paperback / softback (February 2009)

The Paratime Police had a real headache this time. Tracing one man in a population of millions is easy -- compared to finding one gang hiding out on one of billions of probability time-lines! This classic short novel originally appeared as a two-part serial in "Astounding Science Fiction Magazine" in 1955.
