D-205 Who Speaks of Conquest/Earth in Peril VG
Who Speaks Of Conquest?
By Lan Wright
There is a sub-category of old books which I run across occasionally. I call it: Why in hell has this story never been reprinted???Who Speaks Of Conquest is one such. Serialized in a British magazine, reprinted here by Ace in 1957, and, to my (admittedly limited) knowledge, never seen between covers again.
Earth faced a choice between eventual colonization at the hands of a ruthless aggressor or immediate action against the whole galaxy! And Stephen Brady, Commander of the Terran forces, was the man to make that decision of cosmic importance.
Behind the immediate enemy-the Centaurans-the diabolical Rihnans ruled with unchallenged might, backed by the most advanced psychological and technological weapons. To attack now would be the greatest challenge the Earth would ever have to meet!
It's a great story of the triumph of a "primitive" race from an unknown planet called Earth over the entrenched interests of the Galactic Frederation. Wonderful stuff!
The Earth In Peril
Selected by Donald A. Wollheim

A mini-collection, all stories taking the common theme of imminent destruction of Earth, humanity, or both.
THINGS PASS BY, Murray Leinster
