Finally available, a high quality book of the original classic edition of The Ultimate Weapon.

This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work by John W. Campbell, which is now, at last, again available to you.

Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Ultimate Weapon:

She was about thirty million miles off Pluto, just beginning to get in touch with some of the larger mining stations out there, when Buck Kendalls turn at the controls came along.

...As soon as she got within ten million miles of the little tender, she began getting Coles signals, and within twelve hours had reached the tiny thing, located it, and picked it up.

...If you invented a neutron gun which could kill through tungsten walls without injuring anything within, a system of accelerating a ship that didnt affect the inhabitants of that ship, and a means of exceeding the speed of light, all within a few months of each other, would you become a pirate?

... If I didnt have a cent before, Id have relief from work by selling it for a few hundred millions-and Id sell it mighty easily too, for an invention like that is worth an incalculable sum.

...If your trip was, say, twenty billions of miles to the next planet, youd be fighting a gravity as bad as the solar gravity at Earth here all the way-no decline with a little distance like that.
