          Sinopsis
          The story of the "Badge of Infamy" is set in the future where powerful unions called lobbies control much of society. One of the most powerful lobbies is the medical lobby, which following a pandemic that spread across earth, has required all medicine from being practiced only by authorized lobby members and only in approved lobby facilities. Daniel Feldman was once a doctor but has now become a pariah due to his breach of these rules. Trying to escape the shame he travels to Mars, where he discovers a disaster threatening billions of lives.In "The Sky Is Falling" Computer engineer Dave Hanson is transported from Earth to a world where the rules of science and physics are replaced by the rules of magic. Hanson was summoned to help save the world's sky from collapsing. The sky is a literal dome that arches above the world, with the sun and stars not massive celestial bodies trillions of miles away, but smaller lights that move about within the dome of the sky. Hanson must find a way to reconcile his scientific knowledge with the magic of his new world and thus prevent the sky from falling.
          Acerca de Lester del Rey

          Lester del Rey (1915-1993) was born Leonard Knapp (but this became known only long after his death). After a spotty, abbreviated education and itinerant existence, he headed to New York where he became almost immediately a significant constituent of Astounding and John Campbell's celebrated Golden Age.Del Rey sold his first story to John Campbell in the first months of Campbell's editorship, and over the next several years he sold him many more, including his female-android story Helen O'Loy (1938), perhaps the first true science fiction romance, and Nerves (1942, novelized in 1956), a brilliant novella of atomic pile disruption, amazingly prescient of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. Del Rey's apostolic and profoundly controversial short novel For I Am A Jealous People (1956), positing a malevolent Deity, is also very well known.Del Rey worked in the Scott Meredith Fee Department in the late 40s, edited science fiction magazines in the early 50s, published some noted juveniles (The Runaway Robot) in the mid-50s, and eventually became the founding editor of Del Rey Books, a fantasy and science fiction imprint under the aegis of Ballantine.In collaboration with his third wife, Judy-Lynn, del Rey's imprint became the most successful fantasy and science fiction publisher in history. The two of them nurtured fantasy writers like Stephen Donaldson, Anne McCaffrey, and Terry Brooks to bestselling status. In 1991, del Rey was named a Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He died only a few months after his retirement from Ballantine.
