Ace D-324. SF novel, first serialised in the March - June 1930 issues of Astounding, and published in hardcover in 1931. Incidentally the first paperback printing (by a Canadian publisher Duchess) in the 1940s wrongly attributed the author as John W Campbell Jr.

''Cummings was fundamentally a Pulp Magazine writer and - in contrast to colleagues only a little younger, like Murray Leinster and Edmond Hamilton - he was never capable of adapting himself to the changing times, either scientifically or stylistically. Typical of his rather roughshod prose and routine conceptualizing are the Tama novels: Tama of the Light Country (13-27 December 1930 Argosy; 1965) and Tama, Princess of Mercury (27 June-18 July 1931 Argosy; 1966), the heroine of which does very well after being kidnapped from Earth to Mercury. BRIGANDS OF THE MOON) and its sequel Wandl, the Invader (February-May 1932 Astounding; 1961), which also features the adventurous Greg Haljan, are examples of his Space-Opera output, in which space pirates proliferate and humans defeat terrifying alien monsters'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
