Authors: Philip K. Dick / John Brunner

Yours for: Not for sale
Best things about this cover:
- Bang bang Vulcan's space-age hammer came down upon his head
- Prototypes for the robot in "Short Circuit."
- I think a double-flashlight pincer hammer would actually be a pretty cool tool.
- I like to think they're little styling hammers, making our hero look fabulous.
Best things about this other cover:
- A nice visual representation of what happens Every Time I try to peel a hard-boiled egg.
- That's some pretty sweet quintessential '60s sic-fi goodness. Best rockets always look like they came out of a kit and have a maximum of 8 parts, total.
- They kidnapped the sky! Or else they nap on planes, not sure.
Page 123~ (from "Vulcan's Hammer")
Halfway across the Atlantic they passed an immense swarm of hammers streaking toward helpless, undefended North America.
Other continents had presciently installed anti-Vulcan's Hammer technology decades earlier. Silly North Americans.
