Summary
  • Them!: "Radiation-mutated ants--12 feet long and capable of lifting tons--become giant problems in the desert."--Container
  • The beast from 20,000 fathoms: "An A-bomb test in the Arctic awakens a gargantuan prehistoric dinosaur that makes New York City its stomping ground."--Container. From a story by Ray Bradbury
  • World without end: "Mars-mission astronauts skid on a time warp into a post-apocalyptic future earth marked by fear, mutant monstrosities and a diminishing group of survivors. Can these three wayfarers from the past save our world's future?"--Container
  • Satellite in the sky: "A stalwart crew (and a female reporter stowaway) guides a stratospheric jet rocket ship on the first space flight. The mission also involves another first: the outer-space detonation of the feared tritonium bomb. But mechanical failures threaten to trigger disaster."--Container
