4 The Day of the Boomer Dukes [MultiFormat]
by Frederik Pohl
  Just as medicine is not a science, but rather an art--a device, practised in a scientific manner, in its best manifestations--time-travel stories are not science fiction. Time-travel, however, has become acceptable to science fiction readers as a traditional device in stories than are otherwise admissible in the genre. Here, Frederik Pohl employs it to portray the amusingly catastrophic meeting of three societies. (Published: 1956)

5 The Knights of Arthur [MultiFormat]
by Frederik Pohl
  First of all, Arthur was a machine. He rode out the missile attack that shattered the United States safe at sea aboard a hospital ship. But when he took to land with two friends -- human friends -- that's when things got dicey. Because an Artificial Intelligence with his skills could do a lot of work, and quite a few people wanted him. Preferably without his human friends in tow... A classic from the Golden Age of science fiction! (Published: 1958)
