Hüter der Menschheit:
"The Custodians" /1968
By J. H. Schmitz

A group of space pirates plan to import an alien race to earth. Import is the right word, as these aliens possess a weapon hitherto unknown to war ridden earth. But is earth as unsuspecing and helpless as the ruthless pirates think? And: Can they trust their own?


Der Bastler:
"Hobbyist" /1947
By E. F. Russell


A man and a parrot land upon an alien planet, where no thing exists twice ...
(Note how the authors name is misspelled on the cover.)


Die Ausgestoßenen:
"Frontier Of The Dark" /1952
By A. B. Chandler

Humans who don't like cats are being killed by their fellow humans or at least dumped at some remote place. The plot of this story is pretty foreseeable, even when two of the outcasts meet an alien race that seems to have a similar problem.
