SF novel. Sequel to MANY OF MANY MINDS (1953).
''(1893-1958) US sf fan and writer, who began to publish relatively late in life, his first story of genre interest being ''Perfection'' for The Vortex #2 in 1947, and who had mixed success, though there is no doubt of the affection in which other Californian sf writers and fans held him, as evinced in the many tributes to him - from writers such as E E ''Doc'' Smith and A E van Vogt - that were included in a compilation of his macabre fantasy stories, Food for Demons: The E Everett Evans Memorial Volume (coll 1971; cut vt Food for Demons 1974 chap). This homage was set up and printed, though not bound, as early as 1959; it contains his best work. Evans's novels were digestible but routine. The adventures of Esper spy George Hanlon in Man of Many Minds (1953) and its sequel, ALIEN MINDS (1955), are without much bite; and Evans's juvenile, The Planet Mappers (1955), is also very mild'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd printing).
