Sunday means only one thing in the unsubscriber household and so it’s time yet again to choose a Badger novel from the library shelves whilst the kettle boils. I’ve pulled out a title by A. J. Merak for today’s reading pleasure, a pseudonym for one of Fanthorpe’s fellow staff writers John S. Glasby. The tagline reads as follows;
Nature had isolated Earth behind the barrier. This was to be the first step through
The cover features the head of an astronaut wearing a distinctly fifties style fishbowl glass helmet against an interstellar backdrop. I’m not familiar with the work of artist Carlo Jacono but think this is a pretty good piece for a book of this vintage.
I’ll crack on with the story now and see you again for another Badger selection next Sunday if you’d care to join me. Comments are as usual welcome so feel free to share your thoughts on this one.
Barrier Unknown by A. J Merak
