The Golden Age of Science Fiction MegaackTM series showcases great science fiction authors whose work might otherwise be forgotten.

This time we focus on Alan E. Nourse, medical doctor and science fiction author, who paid his way through med school with his writing. He may be most famous as the author whose title was "borrowed" for the movie Bladerunner...though the movie was based on Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" Nourse published just a handful of novels in addition to his magazine stories, but he was well regarded at the time, and his work has stood up well.

We are delighted to include no less than 22 of his classic tales in this volume. Here are:

  • MARLEY'S CHAIN
  • CONSIGNMENT
  • DERELICT
  • INFINITE INTRUDER
  • LETTER OF THE LAW
  • BRIGHTSIDE CROSSING 
  • PRoblem
  • BEAR TRAP
  • THE COFFIN CURE
  • MARTYR
  • THE NATIVE SOIL
  • CONTAMINATION CREW
  • GOLD IN THE SKY
  • STAR SURGEON
  • AN OUNCE OF CURE
  • CIRCUS
  • THE DARK DOOR
  • IMAGE OF THE GODS
  • MEETING OF THE BOARD
  • MY FRIEND BOBBY
  • SECOND SIGHT
  • THE LINK

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
