Feliks (dzerzhinsky) Bravo to you for seeking it out and reading it at all. Not the usual fare for women readers these days.

Admittedly, its not widely considered his very best work.

#1 - The first books I ever read were science fiction.
#2 - It was the selection in my classic science fiction book club.
#3 - It certainly wasn't his best.
