A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 26

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

Righto, it’s that time of the week again and my tea, reading specs and Badger book are all awaiting my attention on the side table. After last week’s Supernatural Special choice I’ve gone back to the SF side of the Badger bookshelf and selected another John E. Muller title from my collection. In The Beginning was actually penned (as if you didn’t know) by the threesome of R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn. Unlike last week’s book we do have the usual tagline which reads;

It was, beyond any doubt, from Outside, from far away in space and possibly from another dimension too

Wordy, troubling stuff indeed!

The cover is another sadly uncredited affair depicting a naked green man draped in a long piece of material, arms aloft as a trio of rocket ships blast off beneath him. In the background is yet another disembodied, bald head (what is it with Badger and their fascination with us noble baldies?) He’s wearing a fine moustache and deeply concerned expression. The rear of the book features brilliantly lurid typography t00, all great stuff as usual!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m itching to get to the beginning of the book and discover what was from far away in space and possibly from another dimension. I’ll see you back here next week for another dose of Badger goodness, comments at the ready people.

In The Beginning by John E. Muller

    I always wondered what the Jolly Green Giant got up to on his days off!

    I cherish this and last Sunday’s Badger book for the supreme cheesiness of their covers.

      That’s the kind of compliment I always hope for when posting these covers, glad you’re still enjoying them as there are plenty more left on the shelf!

        I am looking forward to them. I love ephemera of all kinds, from the sublime to the most mundane. In the category of “cheese” you have shown us some priceless gems, but you have not neglected the sublime either.
