From the SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal sample introduction to the incredible career of Jack Williamson, whose career spanned over 70 years. Jack Williamson published his first SF story, 'The Metal Man', in 1928 and continued to write high quality SF until his death in 2006, along the way coining many of the terms the genre now takes for granted, such as 'terraforming' and 'genetic engineering'. He was the second writer (after Heinlein) to be named a SFWA Grand Master and was the oldest recipient of both the HUGO and NEBULA AWARDs. This volume contains THE LEGION OF SPACE, the first volume in the eponymous series; THE HUMANOIDS; JOHN W. CAMPBELL AWARD-winning TERRAFORMING EARTH and his HUGO AWARD-winning autobiography WONDER'S CHILD: MY LIFE IN SCIENCE FICTION.

But meanwhile, He or IT - had meticulously begun to destroy the world...The Legion of Space was well accustomed to facing mortal peril in the black depths of outer space in order to defend humanity against its unearthly foes. But even they were to find their courage and ingenuity tested to the utmost limits in their fight against the vile phantom that called itself God and shrouded the Universe in an incredible web of terror...

The Cometeers

Authors:
Jack Williamson

In the second book in the Legion of Space series, Jay Kalam, Hal Samdu and Giles Habibula fight The Cometeers, an alien race of energy beings controlling a "comet" which is really a giant force field containing a swarm of planets populated by their slaves. The slave races are of flesh and blood, but none are remotely similar to humans. The Cometeers cannot be destroyed by AKKA, as they are incorporeal from the Universe's point of view and exist for the most part in an alternate reality. The ruling Cometeers feed on their slaves and literally absorb their souls, leaving disgusting, dying hulks in their wake. It is said that they do so, as they were once fleshly entities themselves of various species. Hence, the ruling Cometeers keep other intelligent beings as slaves and "cattle." They fear AKKA, though, as it can erase all their possessions.
