Review

Here is a science-fiction classic, as exciting and ingenious as only a master of super-science could write.

When RAY CUMMINGS took leave of this planet early in 1957, the world of modern science-fiction lost one of its genuine founding fathers. For the imagination of this talented writer supplied a great many of the most basic themes upon which the present superstructure of science-fiction is based. Following the lead of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells, Cummings successfully bridged the gap

I have this book in a kindlized version of a Project Gutenberg free ebook, and I let my kindle read it to me on my commute. Although there were some fun ideas in the work, the book was incredibly slow and could have benefited from being cut about 20 percent. There was a lot of redundancy. I can't really recommend it.

Classic science fiction tale from Ray Cummings. Our hero Gregg Haljan is an officer on the Plantara on a trip from Earth to Mars and then back to Earth.

Little does Haljan know, but brigands have infiltrated the Plantara and are planning on stealing the ore for themselves. A decent actioner for the time. It was originally publish ...more

This is a true space opera: a tale of piracy and claim jumping set in the future. There is romance"," danger"," murder"," and plenty of high-tech weaponry and gadgets"," but it's all window dressing for an adventure story.

A small planetoid"," complete with atmosphere and vegetation"," is used in place of a desert island on which to maroon passengers. There is only the minimal attempt to explain the scientific princ ...more

I was surprised how much I liked this 1930 science fiction story. I'm fan on classic older sci-fi and not all of it is good. Besides the quirky speculation on what the future would be like including space travel, it is a good space opera story. It may be a hard read if the reader isn't a fan of classic science fiction stories from the 20s and 30s.
