The Mechanical Monarch by E.C. Tubb:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Interesting novel that starts in the early Post-Atomic era and concludes far into the future. The first "space flier" (astronaut) dies in the attempt, frozen in interplanetary space. Rescued and defrosted, he does not find the future, run by a perfect computing mechanism obeyed to the letter by a matriarchal government, to his liking. This novel started out a bit slowly, but is ultimately likable. Select an invention:

Asteroid-Metal - raw materials from space

Flexible Wall Sheet Display - flexy flat panel

Impactor Determines Composition

Metamen - live in a robot body

Palm Plate - your hand is the key

Para-Beam - light of paralysis

Self-Service Cafeteria
