The Cosmic Computer by H. Beam Piper - The Original Classic Edition

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

This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work, 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:

Well contribute the information you brought back from Terra, and well get the rest of this gang to put all the money we can twist out of them into it, so well be sure they wont say, Aw, Nifflheim with it!

...Now that he thought of it, they hadnt been when he had gone away, six years ago, but he could remember riding up and down on them as a small child.

...For a while, he imagined himself thirteen years old and knowing everything he knew now, and he began mapping a campaign to establish himself as Litchfields Juvenile Delinquent Number One, to the end that Kurt Fawzi and Dolf Kellton and the rest of them would never dream of sending him to school on Terra to find out where Merlin was.

...It had seemed so easy, when he and his father had been talking on the Mall; just get a ship built, and get out to Koshchei, and open some of the shipyards and engine works there, and build a hypership.

...You were looking for something that doesnt exist, just like all these old cranks that sit around drinking brandy and mooning about what Merlins going to do for them, and never doing anything for themselves.
