Armchair Fiction presents extra-large editions of classic science fiction double novels with original illustrations. The first novel, "The Programmed People," features a seemingly "perfect" future existence. The people of "the Hive" went about their rigid lives in ignorance of their real ruler and the actual history of their race. How could one slender blonde woman crack this powerful monolithic monstrosity? "Slaves of the Crystal Brain" tells the tale of a horrible machine with an evil purpose. There were only a few that were even aware of this cerebral monstrosity, and those unfortunate few trembled at the thought of it. Lot's of spine-tingling excitement is featured in both of these classic sci-fi novels, penned by Jack Sharkey and William Carter Sawtelle.
