Henry H. Beam Piper Books Overview

Little Fuzzy

H. Beam Piper was a 20th century science fiction writer. He is best known for his Terro Human Future History series and a series of Paratime alternate history tales. The theme in many of Piper’s books is best seen in Uller Uprising. Piper wrote about the past repeating itself and past events having a direct effect on the future. Little Fuzzy is considered to be Piper’s best work. In this science fiction novel a race called the Fuzzies is discovered on the planet of Zarathustra. A prospector named Jack Holloway discovers this race on a planet thought to be devoid of life. The company Holloway works for has been obtaining the planet’s resources and they will lose their right to prospect if sapient life is discovered. It is Holloway’s job to make sure the Fuzzies are not discovered.

Time Crime

This short novel by H. Beam Piper was originally published in two parts in Astounding Science Fiction, February and March of 1955, and also appeared in the 1981 collection Paratime. In the world in which Time Crime takes place, human society has developed the technology to move laterally between parallel universes. The heroes of this story, Verken Vall and his wife Hadron Dalla, are ready to embark on a long overdue vacation, when the Paratime Police send them both to investigate rumors of slavery in the Esaron Sector. Like many of Piper’s stories, this is a police procedural, set in the world of the future.

The Complete Paratime

From H. Beam Piper, the creator of the Terrohuman Future History and the bestselling Fuzzy novels, come the parallel worlds of Paratime collected for the first time in one volume. Infinite worlds allowed for infinite evil unless the doorway to those worlds was most carefully guarded. The Paratime Police are an elite force of men and women charged with defending a million unsuspecting Earths from their more developed and more ruthless neighbors in parallel continua. From the original Paratime, which introduced the unceasing struggles of the time traveling heroes, to Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen, the last Paratime story of a state trooper’s conquest of an alternate Earth…
The Complete Paratime is a grand science fiction experience.

Kalvan Kingmaker (By:John F. Carr)

Kalvan Kingmaker is the 3rd in the Kalvan Saga, after H. Beam Piper’s groundbreaking parallel world’s SF novel, Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen, and the sequel, Great Kings’ War by John F. Carr and Roland Green. The Paratime Police patrol an infinity of alternate earths. Their prime directive is to protect the Paratime Secret thereby keeping this infinity of worlds from mixing and destroying each other, or from learning the parasitical Home Time Line is secretly looting their resources. When Penn. State Policeman Calvin Morrison is accidentally dropped off from a cross time conveyer onto Styphon’s House Subsector, he threatens both the Paratime Secret and leadership of the gunpowder theocracy, who owe their power to their secret knowledge of the ‘fireseed’ formula. In just a few weeks, by the use of his knowledge of military strategy, Kalvan saves the small princedom of Hostigos from an invasion orchestrated by Styphon’s House. Kalvan Kingmaker opens right after Kalvan’s decisive victory over the Holy Host of Styphon. With Great King Kaiphranos of Hos Harphax in mourning over his eldest son’s death, the time is ripe for the Army of Hostigos to invade Harphax and topple the Iron Throne. At the holy city of Balph, the Inner Circle is reeling. Archpriest Roxthar, a rare true believer in Styphon, is conducting a full blown inquisition of Styphon’s corrupt upper priesthood. Once his reformation is complete, Roxthar’s next job will to rebuild the Holy Host and defeat and destroy the Usurper Kalvan. Meanwhile, there is a great migration of nomads across the Sea of Grass; they are the wild card. As the nomads pour across the Great Middle River, pushing the clans and tribes that live there into the Great Kingdoms, the big question soon becomes: Will Styphon’s House be buried by the human wave, or will they use the nomads in their war to the death with Kalvan and Hos Hostigos?

Siege of Tarr-Hostigos (By:John F. Carr)

HARD COVER WITH DUST JACKET

Four Day Planet

Four Day Planet

Four Day Planet
where the killing heat of a thousand hour ‘day’ drives men underground, and the glorious hundred hour sunset is followed by a thousand hour night so cold that only an Extreme Environment Suit can preserve the life of anyone caught outside.

Fenris isn’t a hell planet, but it’s nobody’s bargain. With 2,000 hour days and an 8,000 hour year, it alternates blazing heat with killing cold. A planet like that tends to breed a special kind of person: tough enough to stay alive and smart enough to make the best of it. When that kind of person discovers he’s being cheated of wealth he’s risked his life for, that kind of planet is ripe for revolution.

Naudsonce

Day of the Moron

It’s natural to trust the unproven word of the fellow who’s ‘on my side’ but the emotional moron is on no one’s side, not even his own. Once, such an emotional moron could, at worst, hurt a few. But with the mighty, leashed forces Man employs now…
.

Police Operation

Hunting down the beast, under the best of circumstances, was dangerous. But in this little police operation, the conditions required the use of inadequate means!

Naudsonce

Bishop Berkeley’s famous question about the sound of a falling tree may have no standing in Science. But there is a highly interesting question about ‘sound’ that Science needs to consider…
.

Junkyard Planet / The Cosmic Computer

‘There are incredible things still undiscovered; most of the important installations were built in duplicate as a precaution against space attack. I know where all of them are.

‘But I could find nothing, not one single word, about any giant strategic planning computer called Merlin! Is there really a Merlin?’

That’s what Conn Maxwell asked, and the question irked those who heard it. Of course it did! Merlin meant everything to the folks on the planet Poictesme: power, pleasures, and profits unlimited.

But the leading men of the planet didn’t believe him. They couldn’t! The search for Merlin had become their abiding obsession.

Everybody believed that when this super gigantic computer was located amid the mountains of surplus equipment that was the planet’s sole source of revenue, it would mean Utopia for everyone.

Conn Maxwell knew different. He had studied the records on Earth and he thought he knew the true facts about this cosmic computer. To tell them would be to panic , so instead he set about a new search in his own way with startling results.

H. Beam Piper, author of Space Viking and Little Fuzzy, was rather enigmatic where his personal statistics were concerned or so the original blurb to this novel said. He lived in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, it said, and also that he was an expert on the history and use of hand weapons. When the book was published, he had been writing and selling science fiction for many years to the leading magazines, and that he was highly rated among readers for his skill and imagination. He had published several novels, mostly SF, but also including mysteries and juveniles. But that blurb was written just before he took his own life in the noise and nonsense that come out of divorce…
sigh. Some things happen so large upon our lives that they seem to blot out all that goes before…

Space Viking

Space Viking is a science fiction novel written by H. Beam Piper and is set in his Terro Human future history. It tells the story of one man’s search for his wife’s murderer and its unexpected consequences. The story was originally serialized in Analog magazine. Background Ten thousand refugees from the losing side of The Big War The System States War of The Cosmic Computer fled far beyond the boundaries of the Terran Federation and colonized the planet Excalibur. By the beginning of Space Viking, they had expanded to a handful of Sword Worlds so called because they are named after legendary swords and had grown to a total population of three and a half billion, organized in a feudal system of kingdoms, duchies, and other small states, ruled by frequently warring noblemen. Despite their isolation and the political instability, the inhabitants managed to retain a high level of technology, including space flight. One day, a starship rediscovered the Old Federation. Civilization had collapsed, presumably due to the war; many of the planets had regressed to varying stages of semi barbarism. Taking advantage of the situation, ‘Space Vikings’ reminiscent of Norse vikings proceeded to raid the poorly defended Federation worlds over the next three hundred years for loot.

Murder in the Gunroom

The Lane Fleming collection of early pistols and revolvers was one of the best in the country. When Fleming was found dead on the floor of his locked gunroom, a Confederate made Colt type percussion . 36 revolver in his hand, the coroner’s verdict was ‘death by accident.’ But Gladys Fleming had her doubts. Enough at any rate to engage Colonel Jefferson Davis Rand better known just as Jeff private detective and a pistol collector himself, to catalogue, appraise, and negotiate the sale of her late husband’s collection.

There were a number of people who had wanted the collection. The question was: had anyone wanted it badly enough to kill Fleming? And if so, how had he done it? Here is a mystery, told against the fascinating background of old guns and gun collecting, which is rapid fire without being hysterical, exciting without losing its contact with reason, and which introduces a personable and intelligent new private detective. It is a story that will keep your nerves on a hair trigger even if you don’t know the difference between a cased pair of Paterson . 34’s and a Texas . 40 with a ramming lever.

A Planet for Texans

In 1999, this novel won the Prometheus Award, Hall of Fame Award for Best Classic Libertarian SF Novel. This tale features a planet of Texans whose dinosaur sized cattle have to be herded with tanks, and whose system of government derives its character from H.L. Mencken’s classic essay ‘The Malevolent Jobholder’. The protagonist is an insubordinate junior diplomat who is appointed as ambassador to this cantankerously independent planet in the hope that he will be assassinated as the previous ambassador had been, thereby justifying the forcible invasion and conquest of the Texans. The crux of the story is the trial of the previous ambassador’s assassins actually paid killers hired by an alien empire also planning invasion under a legal system that considers the killing of a practicing politician to be justifiable homicide.

Time and Time Again

When they published the title story of this collection in April 1947, Astounding Science Fiction said, ‘To upset the stable, mighty stream of time would probably take an enormous concentration of energy. And it’s not to be expected that a man would get a second chance at life. But an atomic might accomplish both ‘ John W. Campbell was a man who really knew what makes SF the appealing thing it is; it’s no wonder that he published the story. Also included in this volume are ‘The Mercenaries’ Astounding Science Fiction, March, 1950, ‘He Walked Around the Horses’ Astounding Science Fiction, April 1948, ‘The Return’ Astounding Science Fiction, January, 1954 a collaboration with John J. McGuire, and ‘Temple Trouble’ Astounding Science Fiction, April, 1951.

Null-ABC

Literate First Class Elliot C. Mongery, revealed by a quick left quarter turn of the pickup camera, wore the same starchy white smock, the same Sam Browne belt glittering with the badges of the organizations and corporations for whom he was authorized to practice Literacy. The tablet on his belt, Pelton knew, was really a camouflaged holster for a small automatic, and the gold stylus was a gas projector. The black leather jacketed bodyguards, of course, were discreetly out of range of the camera. Members of the Associated Fraternities of Literates weren’t exactly loved by the non reading public they claimed to serve…
. There’s some reaction these days that holds scientists responsible for war. Take it one step further: What happens if ‘book learnin” is held responsible…
? Imagine a world where that bookish nerd over there really does have the power of life and death over everyone around him…

Graveyard of Dreams: Science Fiction Stories

This new collection of H. Beam Piper’s shorter work includes five of his finest stories: ‘Graveyard of Dreams,’ ‘Genesis,’ ‘Operation R.S.V.P.,’ ‘The Answer,’ and ‘Last Enemy.’

Crossroads of Destiny

Blurbs for books. Days are we write so many of them we could just…
well. But it’s clear we aren’t the only ones who feel this way. H. Beam Piper sold ‘Crossroads of Destiny‘ to Fantastic Universe Science Fiction, which published it in their July 1959 issue. ‘No wonder he’d been so interested in the talk of whether our people accepted these theories!’ they said of the story. We aren’t at all certain what they meant by that, but you’ll probably have a clue. The blurb for ‘Hunter Patrol’ Amazing Stories, May 1959 a collaboration with John J. McGuire is equally oblique: ‘Readers who remember the Hon. Stephen Silk, diplomat extraordinary, in Lone Star Planet FU, March 1957, later published as A Planet for Texans Ace Books, will find the present story a challenging departure this possibility that the history we know may not be absolute…
.’ On the other hand, when ‘Dearest’ appeared in Weird Tales, in March, 1951, the folks at that magazine blurbed it, ‘Many men have dreamed of world peace, but none have been able to achieve it. If one man did have that power, could mankind afford to pay the price?’ An interesting thought, we say. And it seems to us that they had a lot more to say about the story than the SF mags did above. On the other other hand it makes us feel like such Moties to say that, when True: The Man’s Magazine, published ‘Rebel Raider’ in December 1950 they said, ‘Jeb Stuart left John Singleton Mosby behind Northern lines ‘to look after loyal Confederate people.’ But before the war was over, Mosby did a lot more than that…
.’ We think they actually read the piece before they published it, by golly! And on the last hand of all, there’s no evidence that anybody at the house that published The Science Fictional Sherlock Holmes, 1960 another collaboration with John J. McGuire even read ‘The Return’ they didn’t say a word about it! Harrumph.

The Worlds of H. Beam Piper (With: )

This new collection of H. Beam Piper’s shorter work includes five of his finest stories: ‘Graveyard of Dreams,’ ‘Genesis,’ ‘Operation R.S.V.P.,’ ‘The Answer,’ and ‘Last Enemy.’

Flight from Tomorrow

Flight from Tomorrow There was no stopping General Zarvas’ rebellion. Hunted and hated in two worlds, Hradzka dreamed of a monomaniac’s glory, stranded in the past with his knowledge of the future. But he didn’t know the past quite well enough…
. Also included in this volume are H. Beam Piper’s ‘Graveyard of Dreams,’ ‘Genesis,’ ‘Operation R.S.V.P.,’ ‘The Answer,’ and ‘The Edge of the Knife.’
