While on a boating holiday, Scott Carey is exposed to a cloud of radioactive spray. A few weeks later, following a series of medical examinations, he can no longer deny the extraordinary truth. Not only is he losing weight, he is also shorter than he was. Scott Carey has begun to shrink.

The Lani people by Jesse F Bone( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They exported the Lani to every planet in the galaxy. Who wants to be bothered by a woman when you can get a whole harem of Lani so cheap? All Lani are exactly like women with one minor "addition". All happy only in the natural naked state. All expertly trained to make a man feel like a god. You specify pedigree - Say Silver Dawn out of White Magic for a platinum-blonde model, or you can take your pick from the adoring herd. The Lani People is the startling story of a planet that applied new scientific knowledge to techniques of breeding, and came up with a system that revolutionised society."--Back cover

Warhorse; a novel of the old West by John M Cunningham( Book )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"WARHORSE is a lusty, muscular first novel by the author of the distinguished short story that was the basis for the motion picture, High noon. The time is 1882 and the scene ranges boldly over the face of the Old West from San Antonio north to Warhorse, Montana. The days of the great American cattle boom were rough and exciting, and Cunningham evokes them with wonderful authenticity: the bawling, milling herds, the vast prairies, the sharp financial practices, the traditions of the Old West striving to resist the encroachments of the new. But WARHORSE is primarily Buford Allen's story: tough, wily, incorrigible old Buford Allen, whose double-or-nothing gamble with fate is prompted by fierce passions, paradoxically tempered by the tenderest sentiments of love. Across the dust-choked prairies and through the wide-open towns Buford pursues his impossible dreams, clashing with the law, careless of life and honor alike, stubbornly battling his enemies--all but the unseen enemy within himself. A tale of hard men in furious action, of love found and love lost, of pride and greed and humility, WARHORSE is a big and compelling novel."--Book jacket

The dark intruder & other stories ; Falcons of Narabedla by Marion Zimmer Bradley( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xanadu. Not the Xanadu of Coleridge's poem, but-to the half-forgotten space drifter who discovered the place thirty years ago-a reasonable facsimile. It was a cloistered nun of a city, hidden behind a wide skirt of the most impassable mountains on Mars. And the city was more impassable than the mountains. No human being had ever entered it-yet. They'd tried. Two expeditions, twelve years apart, had vanished without trace, without explanation other than the dusty notebook Andrew had unearthed, today, from the rotted shreds of a skeleton's clothing
Kill the clown by Richard S Prather( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When danger rolls into town I have one eye open -- my most private eye - while the other is focusing on a fiery fury of a lady. Surrounded by more underworld celebrities than San Quentin and Sing Sing combined, can you believe that I was the King of Clowns? That's right, but I thought my role was to rescue any poor damsel in distress. Too bad that maiden wasn't planning to rescue me from the next social event planned in town - my funeral -and it was up to me to crash the party while keeping cool below the belt

The case of the careless kitten by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )

1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Helen Kendal's woes begin when she receives a phone call from her vanished uncle Franklin, long presumed dead, who urges her to make contact with criminal defense attorney Perry Mason; soon after, she finds herself the main suspect in the murder of an unfamiliar man. Her kitten has just survived a poisoning attempt, as has her aunt Matilda, the woman who always maintained that Franklin was alive in spite of his disappearance. Lucky that Helen took her uncle's advice and contacted Perry Mason--he immediately takes her as a client. But while it's clear that all the occurrences are connected, and that their connection will prove her innocence, the links in the case are too obscure to be recognized even by the attorney's brilliantly deductive mind. Risking disbarment for his unorthodox methods, he endeavors to outwit the police and solve the puzzle himself, enlisting the help of his secretary Della Street, his private eye Paul Drake, and the unlikely but invaluable aid of a careless but very clever kitten in the process. Reprinted for the first time in over twenty years, The Case of the Careless Kitten is one of the most highly praised cases in the iconic Perry Mason series, which need not be read in any particular order." -- Amazon
