It’s Sunday so that means today’s pick of reading material is sourced from my Badger shelf as usual. The book at hand is by the brilliantly monikered Victor La Salle which is actually a pseudonym for a veritable team of writers headed by R. L. Fanthorpe and ably assisted by John S. Glasby, Tom Wade, Gerald Evans and Leonard G. Fish. Tagline time;
Only a miracle could save mankind from extinction
Mankind threatened once again? This is beginning to become a habit. I love the cover here although it rather simply depicts a brilliantly fifties style rocketship blasting over a mountainous, crater-strewn planet as an orange sun creeps over the horizon. The space craft is wonderfully conceived, the colours vibrant and the font used for the main title is a retro treat.
No rear cover included for this book as the ravages of time have sadly taken their toll and it has unfortunately become detached at some point over the past half century or so. Feel free to join me again next Sunday for another rifle through the Badger archives, comments are as always welcomed.
