INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION - 1963

It reads like a story of Big Government trying to shut down Independent Business. The setting is early in the 1960s at the advent of the modern space age. An enterprising company has set up a mining endeavor on an out-world to collect, process, and sell atmospheric gas products. The company is initially successful and an unnamed government entity of Earth has mobilized the Navy (??) to manufacture an incident to enable to government to shut down the operation and subsequently take it over. The company rebels and, led by the protagonists Mike Blades and Jimmy Chung, manage to derail the incident and save the company. This leads to the eventual successful establishment of quasi-independent out-worlds able to hold their own in the marketplace without Big Government control. A good, is somewhat fanciful story smacking of the time in which it was written. Worth the effort.

DUEL ON SYRTIS - 1951

A good short period piece of the "Buck Rogers" style. A trophy hunter of the future has arrived on Mars to "bag" a wild indigent Martian before they are all gone. You immediately form a dislike of the hunter and find yourself siding with the Martian character who is intelligent and aware. The hunter has all the modern advantages, and the Martian has little besides his cunning. In the end, the Martian survives and the trophy hunter is defeated, receiving a fitting end to his heinous quest. A quick enjoyable read.

Early Anderson -- and certainly not one of his best. Luckily he got better with practice. Interesting from standpoint of his writing development.

The retro style of scifi is refreshing. I found myself chuckling in a few places where futuristic notions of space life are actually be considered antiquated in today's information age, like have communication with earth but still receiving paper "newsfaxes" for information.
