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.
