Buddy Holly Is Alive and Well on Ganymede

Bradley Denton

When televisions worldwide begin broadcasting a nonstop, noninterruptible live performance by Buddy Holly purporting to originate somewhere in the vicinity of Jupiter, Oliver Vale--the apparent object of the broadcasts--finds himself drafted for a mission so secret that even he is not sure of its purpose. Denton ( Wrack and Roll , Warner, 1986) fills this supremely funny novel with warring space aliens disguised as humans, a robot dog, a psychopathic assassin, an overzealous psychologist and her jealous husband, a motorcycle gang, and a messianic televangelist--all to prove that rock 'n' roll never really died.

The Ganymede Takeover

Philip K. Dick
Ray Faraday Nelson

The three guerillas made a raid for food and supplies. The defenders kept them off with lasers. So they used the strange new weapons that they had found. The illusion machines. They worked well. Twenty-four phantom men who fought like veterans helped to carry the captured supplies up into the mountains.

Later they conjured up a complete army of illusions: giant vampires, man-eating plants, Valkyries, cannibal children.

The trouble was, when they switched the off the machines, the phantoms didn't go away...

The Snows of Ganymede / War of the Wing-Men

Ace Double D-Series: Book 303

Poul Anderson

The Snows of Ganymede

When the Order of Planetary Engineers sent Hall Davenant to Ganymede for a terraforming survey, they knew that the job on the airless, frigid Jovian moon would be tough. Changing it to resemble Earth - with fertile land, water and good air - was the biggest and most important planet conversion job ever attempted by the Engineers. But they hadn't counted on the already too Earthlike behaviour of the Ganymede colonists, who had never altered the ancient Earth-born habits of intrigue, bigotry and double-dyed treachery!

War of the Wing-Men

Three Terrans crash on a planet whose food is poison to them. They have to get to the other side of the planet where a Terran base camp can feed them. Unfortunately they get embroiled in a war between rival tribes of wing-men. van Rijn uses his wits to manipulate the situation to his own benefit and brings about a truce.

Ganymede

Clockwork Century: Book 3

Cherie Priest

The air pirate Andan Cly is going straight. Well, straighter. Although he's happy to run alcohol guns wherever the money's good, he doesn't think the world needs more sap, or its increasingly ugly side-effects. But becoming legit is easier said than done, and Cly's first legal gig-a supply run for the Seattle Underground-will be paid for by sap money.

New Orleans is not Cly's first pick for a shopping run. He loved the Big Easy once, back when he also loved a beautiful mixed-race prostitute named Josephine Early-but that was a decade ago, and he hasn't looked back since. Jo's still thinking about him, though, or so he learns when he gets a telegram about a peculiar piloting job. It's a chance to complete two lucrative jobs at once, one he can't refuse. He sends his old paramour a note and heads for New Orleans, with no idea of what he's in for-or what she wants him to fly.

But he won't be flying. Not exactly. Hidden at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain lurks an astonishing war machine, an immense submersible called the Ganymede. This prototype could end the war, if only anyone had the faintest idea of how to operate it.... If only they could sneak it past the Southern forces at the mouth of the Mississippi River... If only it hadn't killed most of the men who'd ever set foot inside it.
