This is a classic example of Golden Age Science Fiction. Once again Captain Future and his Futuremen are called upon to save the solar system from an evil villain with designs on ruling all 9 planets. (Yes I said 9 planets! I don't care what they say, Pluto is a planet.) Rushing from planet to planet in his spaceship, the Comet, Captain Future is hot on the trail of the villain, Doctor Zarro. Adventure ensues. I recommend this book to fans of Golden Age Science Fiction and Edmond Hamilton.

This novel originally appeared in the second issue of Captain Future Magazine in 1940. It's a fun pulp adventure, one of the best that I've read in the series thus far. The scientific content is way beyond and behind comprehension (I suspect that it was in 1940, to be honest), but the fast paced plot, the interplay between the main characters, and the face-off between good and evil makes for a great story, full of innocence and good humor. The future just isn't what it used to be.

This novel by Edmond Hamilton is not one of his better endeavors. Written in 1940, it is fairly well dated. Like the old serials of the movies there are many improbable circumstances and at times laughable outcomes. Captain Future must have been trapped in a seemingly impossible trap only to come out of it with the luck of a leprechaun.
Still I went in knowing this. So as the famous quote goes, the Golden Age of Science Fiction is 12. If you enjoy camp and a look back at SF history, then you'll

Just the kind of retro adventure I was looking for.

The pulp era SiFi hero, Captain Future is a more scientific version of Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon. He and his band of Futuremen are special criminal investigators for the Earth government and are similar to Doc Savage and his band of helpers. Great reads, recommended

Edmond Moore Hamilton was a popular author of science fiction stories and novels throughout the mid-twentieth century. Born in Youngstown, Ohio, he was raised there and in nearby New Castle, Pennsylvania. Something of a child prodigy, he graduated high school and started college (Westminster College, New Wilmington, Pennsylvania) at the age of 14--but washed out at 17. He was the Golden Age writer ...more
