As Sunday arrives once more I find myself standing in front of the library shelves in a bid to find yet another Badger book to spend my day getting lost in. This time I’ve chosen a title written by the trio of R. L. Fanthorpe, John S. Glasby and A. A. Glynn or John E. Muller as the cover states, I seem to have an awful lot of books under this particular pseudonym. Let’s turn our attention to the ever present tagline shall we;
Part man part machine they possessed the worst qualities of both
I love the fabulously retro typography on this sadly uncredited cover which features a trio of rocket ships blasting off into space from a cratered and mountainous alien world. The rockets are of a classic sixties cigar shaped design with stabilising fins, brilliantly vintage stuff.
So, onwards with the book now. I’ll have another selection for you next week so please do join me then, feel free to share your thoughts with me in the comments as usual.
