Cover of Countercommandment (Analog 5 in paperback)

This short story was published in the December 1965 issue of Analog, edited by John Campbell.

It was subsequently selected as one of the best stories of the year and included in the annual collection Analog 5. When this book was released later in paperback it was retitled Countercommandment after Patrick’s story.

Here it is for you as a collection of images of the pages, photocopied from a first edition of Analog 5.  (The book was a special gift to JP from his wife Donna.)

While it’s a bit of a pain to have to click on each image individually, you can be assured that the story is worth the effort. I’m investigating WordPress plugins for better gallery management such as a slide show option.
