Post Phillips, Mark: Queen's Own FBI Trilogy. v2, 9 Jun 2008

SF trilogy, actually written by Gordon Randall Garrett and Laurence Mark Janifer. The three books in the series are:
  • Brain Twister
  • The Impossibles
  • Supermind

Brain Twister was nominated for the 1960 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Description from FictionWise:

The Legendary Hugo Nominee SF Trilogy in One Volume! All the FBI needed to save America was a telepath. Then agent Kenneth Malone found one. Only she was crazy and thought she was Queen Elizabeth I. To get that sweet little old lady's help he and the FBI would have to dress up in 16th century court costumes and pretend to be her nobles. Malone need her help again when teen age gang members can escape police and payment for their crimes by teleporting away and vanishing--appearing to simply wink out like a light. Finally Malone and the FBI must adopt their 16th century guise again when they enlist that sweet little old lady again to help find the psionic with the negative energy field whose every thought is an occasion for disaster. This classic trilogy is filled with flights of daring imagination and laughter. Written as by Mark Phillips, this was a triple AnLab Poll winner when it appeared in Astounding/Analog as That Sweet Little Old Lady, Out Like a Light, and Occasion for Disaster.

Enjoy!


EDIT: 9 Jun 08

Completely recreated the book to improve the layout and formatting. Uploaded v2.

Thanks for making these available in Mobi format. They are great fun. Gutenberg has the plain text versions, and Manybooks.net has them in other formats. (The versions published in Astounding SF will be available fairly soon in HTML at PG, with the magazine illustrations.)

I never had the privilege of meeting Randy, but did know Larry Janifer pretty well. I think he'd be pleased to see this available again.

"The Impossibles" has been updated on Project Gutenberg. Some minor errata fixed.

Good work, Harry!

One small suggestion: the three single novels each had a cover page. Maybe it would be nice to add the three cover pages to this omnibus version?
