Wow! I just created the entry for this bk & the "original language" selection has expanded to include what seems to be an attempt at comprehensiveness! Congrats to whoever did this! But I digress.

This is one of the more medicore bks I've ever read.. not even that enoyable as a pot-boiler. Still, I'm a champion of pretty much all pulp SF. I reckon all works are 'works of the imagination' but pulp SF always strikes me as a particularly raw (or refined?) version of that. This imagining of other planets, even when it's so imbued w/ yr typical pirates & conflict like this one is, was still somewhat fresh in 1966 when this was written. It's got class conflict in it wch is usually something to peak my interest. Still, this is the only novel I've read by Davidson & I'm not in any hurry to read any more.
