I do love my Sundays, a whole day of wonderfully slothful inactivity with nothing more demanding to do than casually read a book. I suppose that’s why I’ve chosen to work through my Badger collection on this day, each volume being short and light enough to get through in one sitting. This week’s selection was penned as ever by the Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, this time under the pseudonym Lionel Roberts. The ever-present front tagline reads as follows;
Man had always dreamed of immortality…. The dream became a nightmare
This is yet another Badger book with a great cover depicting a man wearing fur lined boots and a fetching gold belt as he kneels before a huge wobbly apparition of a stern face. Great stuff!
Time to dive in now and find out a bit more about this mysterious X whose face adorns the front cover. Comments at the ready.
