A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 15

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

The joy of a lazy Sunday; a nice steaming hot cuppa to hand, feet up on the comfy couch and a good book to while away the hours is all I need to make me happy. This weekend’s little treasure is by Pel Torro which is a pen name for the writing talents of the good Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe and fellow Badger staff writer Harry O. Mansfield. Let’s get straight to that front tagline shall we?

They discovered the secret to a mystery older than time itself

On the cover, a robot appears to be passing a rocket-like object to a rather voluptuous young lady who is splendidly decked out in a red all-in-one which also features a matching cape. How bizarre!

I too would like to discover the secret to this aged mystery and so it’s straight into chapter one for me now. Join me next weekend for another slice of Badger heaven. Feel free to add your comments should you wish.

    That is one spiffy retro robot! Is this an alternative romance? Our robot friend is giving the eye (two eyes, in fact) to the lady with the painted-on outfit, with a “Va-va-voom!” expression on his face.

      Ha ha, I like your premise, a sort of Mills & Boon in space. I’m still trying to figure out why he’s giving her a rocket, maybe he thought it a more romantic gesture than roses.

        My first impression was of a hypodermic needle, then I thought the needle-thing could be an antenna. Looks like a radio contraption falling off the Empire State building. Terrifically phallic, whatever it is.
