Armchair Fiction presents extra large editions of classic science fiction double novels, complete with original illustrations. The first novel is by sci-fi veteran, Milton Lesser. "Jungle in the Sky" is about hunting big game (alien big game) on far-off Ganymede. They were deep space hunters, and their job was to bring back the rarest and most exotic creatures the distant planets had to offer. They searched for their prey from one end of the solar system to the other. From the hot surface of Mercury to the frozen wastelands of Uranus. The prize catch of these alien creatures were the wild anthrovacs, who roamed freely on the surface of far-off Ganymede. These were the creatures the hunters wanted the most-though not as badly as the anthrovacs wanted the hunters The second novel, "Recalled to Life" is by one of sci-fi's best known authors, Robert Silverberg. It deals with bring the dead back to life. It was the supreme irony. Humanity, apparently, feared being recalled to life more than it feared death itself. When Harker joined the little group of scientists, he didn't realize the problems he would face. Their discovery made it possible to revive corpses to full, healthy life. They thought the world would welcome it as the greatest boon of all time. Instead, the world fought them, bitterly and savagely. Bewildered, they could find no way to fight back. The problem was Harker's to solve, and there seemed to be only one answer... Harker himself had to die
