Planet of Doom is a small anthology published in 1958 as part of the Satellite Series. The lead story, "Planet of Doom" by Malcolm Jameson is one of eight stories in the volume. Another author was a 30 year old Philip K. Dick who contributed "Retreat from Rigel".

The rarity of this publication was mentioned recently on the 'sfcc@lists.ucr.edu' discussion list. The only copies known to be held in library collections being here and at the University of Otago Special Collections Library.

The University of Sydney’s Rare Books & Special Collections Library is open to all researchers, members of the public and science fiction fans. Just bring some id such as student card, drivers licence, etc.
