Another Sunday has arrived and so it’s time to beat a well worn path to the library shelves and have a rummage through the Badger section to make my choice of reading companion for the day. This time around I’ve gone for a title by Leo Brett, better known as the duo of R. L. Fanthorpe and Harry O. Mansfield – just one writer short of being a John E. Muller effort! Time to run the tagline;
Ghost towns were the rule… not the exception… The world was empty!
Ominous stuff indeed. The sadly uncredited cover features another one of Badger’s trademark disembodied heads looking down on a gigantic flying saucer which is being boarded by hundreds of passengers.
I’m looking forward to finding out the reason why humanity is forced to leave the Earth in this manner and if they can overcome the dangers now before them. I’ll be back again next week with another pick from the Badger shelf so be sure to join me then, your comments are as always appreciated
Exit Humanity by Leo Brett
(Serial Number SF40)
This version was published in 1960 by Badger Books
