A Badger Book On Sunday With The Reverend R. L. Fanthorpe, Chapter 46

Rev Fanthorpe Frame

It’s time to take another trip to the Badger shelves of my library to choose a book for this Sunday’s reading pleasure and this week it’s the turn of Karl Zeigfreid to provide the story. Zeigfreid is of course the pseudonym of writing partners R. L. Fanthorpe and John S. Glasby. It’s time now for that all important tagline;

If the new process could not be controlled it could threaten the entire planet

Once again, Badger stalwart Harry Fox turns in an impressive cover showing two graven-faced scientists wearing atomic helmets above some nuclear generating apparatus from which a number of operatives are fleeing before a no doubt imminent meltdown. Stirring stuff indeed!

And now I shall read on to discover what kind of threats to humanity are hopefully averted within the pages of this ageing book. I’ll have more fascinating Badger cover art selections to share over the coming weekends so be sure to join me here, comments are always welcome.

    I was startled to see this is #46 of the Badger Book series! I feel I must have missed some, and I need to review the earlier posts.

      Yes Lin, we reached number 46 this week so you’ve definitely got a little catching up to do. I hope that you enjoy the earlier posts as much as these recent ones. All the best x

    I love the depiction of technology gone wrong, I like to contrast it with the depictions of technology as a wonderful life enhancing tool in the old Air Wonder Stories covers where we landed our flying cars on floating sky cities. How times change.

      Thanks once again for your comment Guy, glad this one ticks a few boxes for you. Being of a certain vintage it was all hover boots and jet packs when I was a lad but of course we got none of that good stuff. Still, I wouldn’t be without my iPad, iPhone, MP3s and all the other trappings of modern technology so at least we didn’t miss out entirely. All the best.
