Another Sunday begins and so does the search for another Badger book to while away a few hours. I seem to remember picking this one up as part of a job lot but then I could be mistaken (as I often am these days). Still, all that really matters is that this looks like yet another cracker from the House of Badger!
The author John E. Muller is of course a pseudonym for the prolific trio of staff writers during this particularly fertile period of the 60s – R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn.
Once again, that all-important tagline is present on the cover and states;
“She was lost in a weird, wild dimension – full of strange Secrets.”
Another great cover adorns the book; a young, blonde scientist/nurse fiddles with some sparking electronic equipment whilst a disembodied face etched with concern – possibly of the chief scientific officer himself – looms over her in half-shadow. Not as lurid as some cover art included in this series granted but I love this image for its simplicity and sense of explosive foreboding.
It’s time to step into this weird, wild dimension and find out the answers to those strange secrets…
Phenomena X by John E. Muller
(Serial Number SF116)
