I promised last week that I’d be here again this Sunday with more Badger goodness and so let’s have a look at which title I’ve selected from the library to read today. It’s another book by John E. Muller – pen name for the trio of R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn. Ready for the tagline?
They came in a surge of shock and agony… The radiant mind Gods
The cover is another classic Badger painting depicting a rather stern-faced chap wearing a matching helmet/headphone/choker combo of sorts and holding on to two crackling electrodes. Sparks of electricity are issuing from the whole setup although I have to say he looks merely determined rather than shocked or agonised as the tagline suggests he would be. I don’t normally mention the back cover blurb in these articles but couldn’t resist drawing your attention to the last line;
Another piece of superlative science fiction from today’s top British science fiction.
What? Is that a typo or are my eyes and addled mind deceiving me? I’ll let you, dear reader decide for yourself whilst I delve into the pages of this novel. More from the good Reverend next week, please feel free to drop your comments in the box as usual.
The Mindmakers by John E. Muller
(Serial Number SF58)
