This is a classic science fiction short story by Philip José Farmer. Set three centuries in the future around a far off star, there live humans and two other sentient hominids, the reptiles and the amphibians. All three life forms wear living cloaks, known as skins. These skins allow them to communicate with each other via telepathy, and provide them with empathy and a conscience – one which gives them electric shocks should they step out of line. Rastignac takes exception to the skins and embarks on a mission to overthrow them. This work is part of our Vintage Sci-Fi Classics Series, a series in which we are republishing some of the best stories in the genre by some of its most acclaimed authors, such as Isaac Asimov, Harry Harrison, and Robert Sheckley. Each publication is complete with a short introduction to the history of science fiction.

OUT FROM THE GREEN WORLD: Humans had colonized the planets & lost its birthright. Civilization was a lonely chain of space stations linked by terror. The Empire kept the pioneers enslaved with a weapon that shattered any protest into screaming insanity. All they had left was the dream of someday returning home. Until their dream exploded in the holocaust that destroyed the Earth. But the embers of their dead planet sparked a brain-blasting revolution that swept the galaxy: a revolution of exiles in an alien universe-with nothing left to lose.

DANGER! THRILLS! ADVENTURE! Alan Green was not exactly a hero. In fact he liked peace just as well as the next man. Not that he was really afraid of that crazy, hot-blooded hound-dog Alzo, or even of the hound's gorgeous owner, the Duchess Zuni—who was also hot-blooded (to say nothing of the Duke). After all, these things were understood on this backward, violent planet, and a man could manage, provided he was alert twenty-four hours a day. And as a matter of fact, Alan was only normally apprehensive of his Junoesque, tempestuous (but altogether lovable) wife Amra. Delightful, demanding Amra—and her five uproarious kids. The trouble was, he was tired. And homesick. So when he heard of two other downed spacemen, he hitched a ride with a piratical merchant-captain on a windroller destined to carry him to the spaceship and thence to the peaceful green hills of Earth. But he had reckoned without the vagaries of the windroller, pirates, the "traveling islands," the rascally Captain, and various flora and fauna peculiar to this planet—all of which, it now seemed, regarded Alan with unnerving malevolence. And worst of all, Amra was determined that he should be a hero. Amra won.

A mysterious romantic thriller set in the late 1940s, "Peripheral Lies" tells the story of how several lives become entangled in a government operation that includes a web of deceit, murder, and international crime. Laura Chandler is the number one suspect in the murder investigation of Mark Swenson, a wealthy businessman, and she doesn't know where to turn for help. Paul Lambert, an attorney who is clueless about the mysterious happenings in his own law office, is sure of one thing-his undeniable attraction to his new secretary, Sheila Connery. But Lambert's assistant has a secret-she is working for the FBI as one of the first female agents in history. Sheila has gone undercover to investigate the CIA's involvement in 'Operation Paperclip," a covert government maneuver to smuggle German rocket scientists and interrogation specialists out of Nazi Germany and into the United States. As Sheila defies the chauvinistic attitudes of the Deep South, she desperately hopes to discover who not only killed but mutilated her brother, Jimmy. Did Laura really kill Mark Swenson? In "Peripheral Lies," Sheila may find much more than she expects on the quest to find her brother's murderer.

The true story of John Battaglia—the coldhearted father who executed his two young daughters to spite his ex-wife. Dallas antiques dealer Mary Jean Pearle had a bitter history with her ex-husband, John David Battaglia, a former Marine and successful accountant—but even after the abuse she endured from him, she never thought he would go after their daughters, Faith and Liberty. That is until she listened helplessly over the phone as Faith made a heartrending plea for her life—which was followed by gunshots. In this updated account of Battaglia’s unthinkable crime—an act of filicide that was featured on 20/20 and would ultimately lead Texas to carry out the death sentence—Irene Pence recounts an unforgettable saga of violence, betrayal, and a mother’s worst nightmare.
