In a previous post I cited Sewell P. Wright's Commander John Hanson series as being a forerunner of the kind of stories later televised on Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek. Now one of Wright's Hanson stories, "The God in the Box," has been added to Project Gutenberg. So read for yourself a tale of the brave captain of the spaceship Ertak. And don't miss the early story by the legendary PKD either.
The God in the Box by Sewell P. Wright
In the course of his Special Patrol duties Commander John Hanson resolves the unique and poignant mystery of "toma annerson."
The Crystal Crypt by Philip K. Dick
Stark terror ruled the Inner-Flight ship on that last Mars-Terra run. For the black-clad Leiters were on the prowl ... and the grim red planet was not far behind.
