SF novel, one of 24 that Geoffrey John Barrett wrote for the Robert Hale sf series, both under his own name but also writing as ''Edward Leighton'', ''Dennis Summers'' and ''James Wallace''. Robert Hale produced books primarily for the library market (still flourishing in the 1970s) and so most titles are very uncommon. The only edition of this title, and rare.

''(1928-1999) UK author who also published thrillers as ''Cole Rickard'' and westerns as ''Bill Wade''; his sf novels, written for Robert Hale Limited both under his own name and as ''Edward Leighton'', ''Dennis Summers'' and ''James Wallace'', are consistently routine. Robert Hale was a UK publishing firm which from 1936 - 1984, though mainly in the 1970s, published more than 450 sf novels, in hardbound editions, primarily for the library market. A large majority of titles originating with the firm were uniform in length (192 pages) and routine in substance, most being Space Operas varied with occasional Dystopias, though other forms of sf also featured'' (John Clute & David Langford/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
