    Six Frightened Men by Robert Silverberg - It was an unexplored planet and anything could happen—yet none of us expected to face a creature impossible to fight, let alone kill.... 
    You put your life on the line when you join the Exploratory Wing of the Space Corps. They tell you that when you sign up. The way they told it to me, it went like this: 
    "You'll be out there on alien worlds where no human being has ever set foot—worlds which may or may not have been inhabited by hostile alien creatures. You take your life in your hands every time you make a planetfall out there. Still interested?" 
    "That's old stuff," I said. "You don't think I'd join up if it was an old ladies' tea party, do you?" 
    Which was how I happened to be crouching behind a fantastically-sculptured spiralling rock out on the yellow wind-blasted desert of Pollux V, huddling there with the fierce sweep of sand against my faceplate, looking at the monster that barred my path. 
    The thing was at least sixty feet tall and all eyes and mouth. The mouth yawned, showing yellow daggers a foot long. As for the eyes—well, they burned with the cold luminosity of an intelligent and inimical being. 
    I didn't know what the thing was. One minute I'd been examining an interesting rock formation, a second later I was hiding behind it, watching the ravening thing that had appeared out of nowhere. 
    Other members of the expedition were sprawled here and there on the desert too. I could see Max Feld, our paleontologist, curled in a tight plump little ball under an outcropping of weathered limestone, and there was Roy Laurence, the biochemist, flat on his stomach peering at the thing incredulously. 
    Back behind me were three others—Don Forster, Leo Mickens, Clyde Hamner. That made six. The two remaining members of the team, Medic Howard Graves and Anthropologist Lyman Donaldson, were back at the ship.

    On an alien world, beneath twin red suns glowing in an orange sky, a middle school from Atlanta, Georgia appears. Wand-wielding warriors stand in a circle around the school, ready to attack. 
    Inside the school, panic. 
    Jeff is a seventh-grader that's been struggling to be accepted by his peers after skipping a year forward in math. Suzy is his eighth-grade sister trying to break tradition by becoming her school’s first female student-body president. 
    But when the kids' school is transported to an alien planet and held hostage, Jeff's plans to make friends and Suzy's goals to be a leader take on whole new meaning. And while Jeff and Suzy are becoming champions for their school in the fight to get back to Earth, the king of the aliens has plans of his own - plans that could wreak havoc on not one world, but two.
