C'mon, how can you not love Flash Gordon? This is where the current field began. Long before Luke and Kirk, before Tom Corbett even, Buck Rogers and Flash were keeping the galaxy safe for us. This, the first Flash novel, has more excitement and action (and exclamation marks) per page than anything you'll find published in this century. It has a bright orange binding with nicely illustrated end-papers; one of the current small specialty presses should do a reprint edition.

Despite the material"," there is a very dark tone to this novel. Flash believes Dale to be dead"," which causes a princess to fall in unrequited love with him. Lots of melodrama. Which caused me to give this four stars.
