Cummings, Ray: Wandl The Invader. v1, 24 Sept 2008

Another great Ray Cummings novel, an early master of Sci-Fi. This was originally serialized in Astounding Stories, 1932.

Are you,

1) tired of fat, pretentious Sci-Fi novels?
2) tired of wallowing in the mire?
3) tired of reading yet another writer writing inpenetrable jargonese?
4) tired and bored silly because of #3?

Ok, then, HANG ONTO YOUR RAY BLASTERS! - because you're going back to the Golden Age of Sci-Fi, when writing was exciting and -- GET THIS, WONDER OF WONDERS! - writers could actually write interesting stories!!!!

This isn't great literature and it's not meant to be. It's just fun reading and nothing more.

Here's a quote from chapter 13:

"Insects? I suppose I should call them that. With a glance I saw that they were of many sizes and shapes; tiny little things with eyes like lanterns; things of many legs, finger-length, hand-length, and some as long as my forearm. Brown-shelled things, with eyes glowing on stems. There was one quite near us, a smooth, brown-shelled body; a round head on top, as big as my fist. And these things had heads like little distended brains."

Like all books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.

I hope you enjoy it.

Don

Holy crap! I just wondered onto this posting and this sounds like a mighty good read. Thanks for the pulp!
