INVADERS FROM EARTH + TO WORLDS BEYOND
(reprint) omnibus: 1980
|Invaders from Earth - Ted Kennedy, a PR man, gets the job of convincing the public that wiping out the natives of Ganymede is necessary, so that Earth can exploit the resources there. Somewhere in the middle of the project, he stops fooling himself about what he's doing, finding he has a conscience... |
1 of 3 early Silverberg novels singled out by Clute & Nichols' Encyclopedia of SF as being most notable.
Expanded from a magazine version in Science Fiction Quarterly February 1958: as "We, the Marauders." This expanded version first appeared as half of an Ace Double in 1958. (The shorter version has appeared as half of a Belmont Double.)
To Worlds Beyond - a collection of stories by Robert Silverberg. It is rather hard to find: the Chilton hardcover came out in 1965, and there was a 1969 British paperback. The first American paperback appearance was in 1980 - as half of an omnibus. Most of these stories do not overlap with other Silverberg collections - only found here.

These originally appeared from 1956 to 1959 - in Imagination, Super SF (3), Galaxy, Infinity (2), Astounding (2) (three under various pseudonyms.)
