A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 42

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

Yet another week has passed and so it’s time to hit the library shelves again and choose another Badger title to spend my lazy Sunday with. The book I’ve chosen to read today is by that old favourite pseudonym John E. Muller, better known as the trio of R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn. It’s time to run the tagline;

They landed to find the world they had known a smoking ruin

The sterling Harry Fox cover features another of his trademark disembodied heads gazing malevolently down at a small town as a pair of rocketships blast off into space. I was a little disappointed that there was no smoking ruin as promised by the tagline but I guess this was just an arbitrary choice of cover for the book by the editorial team as is often the case with Badger.

And now it’s time for me to delve into the pages of this human drama and see what kind of story unfolds. I’ll be back next week with more Badger goodness so join me then to see what the library shelves bring forth. Your comments are as always more than welcome.

    Another wonderful memory, thanks 🙂

    You know, I think that’s the best blurb I’ve ever read on a Badger book, very philosophical and so very true. Not looking forward to the ray guns, though, existing guns cause enough grief!!

    Take care, Bernie xxx
