It’s that day of the week again, my lazy day spent doing nothing but reading a Badger book from the comfort and privacy of my favourite armchair. This week’s book is yet another John E. Muller title which, if you’ve been keeping up you’ll know is the work of R. L. Fanthorpe , John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn.
The tagline rather intriguingly reads;
These were no ordinary children – their weapons were enough to destroy Stellar Polaris herself.
Cover art is once again ably provided by Emsh who puts a willowy looking young girl against a background of rockets and a green skinned, wide eyed alien. There’s almost something maternal in the alien’s eyes – a female connection of some sort. It’s a brilliantly executed piece that, despite its obvious luridness has a tender, gentle quality about it. I never expected to be typing a sentence like that about a Badger cover!
More Badger books to be discussed same time, same place next week. See you then.
