1 Voodoo Planet

The story is described as a "duel of the cosmic magicians." It involves two witch doctors who conjure up ghosts and demons against each other and might appear to be fantasy. But Norton bases the wizards' magic on the use of mildly hallucinogenic drugs, psychological manipulation and latent telepathy, which place the story within the realm of science fiction.

But the Soviets thought it was the Americans. Maybe it was the Australians? This new experimental test provides the answer.
