SF novel. Although (mostly) routine sf (though there are exceptions), most of these Robert Hale titles are very uncommon (with nearly all - if not all - copies going to the thriving library market in the 1970's).
''US stunt rider, rancher and author, extraordinarily prolific in several fields, with more than 900 novels under his own name and 69 identified pseudonyms from 1950 until the mid 1990s, almost always for Robert Hale Limited. Over 600 of these were Westerns, many of them achieving a level of genuine competence; a relative handful of them were sf, which he wrote without particular inspiration. This Time Tomorrow (1963), a grim Future War tale, was published under his own name; further routine space operas are: FOCOLOR (1973) as by Roy Ainsworthy; A Crack in Time (1971), The Undine (1972), Another View (1972), Bannister's Z-Matter (1973) and The Underground Men (1975) as by Mark Carrel; and The Harbinger (1972), The Misplaced Psyche (1973) and Kernel of Death (1973) as by Troy Howard'' (John Clute, Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
