By: Walter Bagehot

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: No. I. The Preliminary Age. One peculiarity of this age is the sudden acquisition of much physical knowledge.

A new world of inventions ? of railways and of telegraphs ? has grown up around us which we cannot help seeing; a new world of ideas is in the air and affects us, though we do not see it. A full estimate of these effects would require a grea...

Time Traders

By: Andre Norton

Excerpt: Ross Murdock wouldn?t have seemed formidable to any one glancing casually at him as he sat within the detention cell. He was a little above average height, but not enough to make him noticeable.

Rob jenne turned from the streams of moving cargo to his unnoticed companion in the shade of the starship?s hull. His own eyes were pale gray, suited like his dead-white skin to burlage, whose ruddy sun could raise a blush but not a tan. When they adjusted, they took in the clerical collar which completed the other?s costume. The smooth, black synthetic contrasted o...
