Jeff Knowlton | 2 comments Author unknown. Title unknown. Three (?) children have returned to Earth after being sent on a round trip space voyage to escape the end of the world. Due to the speed they were traveling much more time has elapsed on Earth than the kids experienced themselves. There are mutants inhabiting the Earth now. One of them is a large and lovable character with indestructible obsidian skin and the intellect of a child. The one detail about him that stuck in my memory is his habit of setting off live grenades near his ear because it tickled and he liked the sound it made.

Was the book for children, teens, or adults?
Anything about the cover?
