A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 44

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

Greetings reader and welcome to my humble online home. This Sunday I have chosen to spend some quality time with a title written by the duo of John S. Glasby and R. L. Fanthorpe under the name of Karl Zeigfreid. The tagline reads as follows;

The man from 1963 stood poised on the brink of 3063

The cover is another painting by the great Harry Fox and features a brilliantly spacesuited astronaut standing alone on some far-flung alien planet as a rather concerned looking disembodied head floats in the background. Fox paints these kind of cover scenes so well and this one is no exception, I think the colours are particularly well matched on this example.

It’s time for me to read on now and enjoy another piece of Badger history some fifty odd years after its initial publication. I’ll be back again soon with more picks from the Badger archives as I gradually read through my collection. I hope you enjoyed this week’s classic sci-fi selection, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

    That is definitely one concerned looking disembodied head, also the premise from the back for the switch between the two characters seems fairly novel.

    Happy Sunday.

    “…one of the many pathetic pieces of human flotsam on the tide of 20th century neurosis.”

      I liked that line too. I felt like “Yes! Those are my people! That’s my tribe!” 😀

    I like that both of these guys have odd nuances in their expressions that are the accidental results of less-than-masterful painting.

      Always a potential by-product of a Harry Fox painting featured on a Badger cover. Glad you liked this one Lin, all the best x
