Another one of these virtually anonymous Hale hardcovers of yore. It's hit and miss with a lot of these and I'm happy to say this one is a hit for the most part.

It's a goofy story at face value but one that works as the author makes his people and places that much more believable.

I enjoyed the way he brought the two worlds together and implanted the paranoia of the time (Cold War etc).
