A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 17

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

It’s becoming a habit now, albeit a rather pleasing and much anticipated one to be sure. Sunday once more and the side table bears a steaming hot cuppa plus the latest Badger tome to be leisurely taken in as the sun moves across the heavens behind its usual covering of thick cloud. Bliss!

This week I’ve plumped for another John E. Muller title, a pseudonym as if you weren’t aware by now of the venerable Rev Fanthorpe himself aided and abetted by John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn. The cover features a rather fashionably bearded young chap gazing skywards as all manner of retro-futuristic space craft fly about him. Noble stuff indeed! The cover tagline reads;

There was something beyond the limitless space….If only man could reach it

Well, my cup of tea is cooling now so it’s time to delve between the speckled pages and read on. More Badger frolics and hi-jinx to follow next weekend so join me with a hot beverage of your choice and keep on reading…

    “…a rather pleasing and much anticipated one to be sure.” I couldn’t agree more.
    Keep them coming!

    This is a very pleasing cover. A deliberately severe design with a restricted palette–dare we call it elegant?
