Johnny Parent was driven by a furious anger-anger against the cocky aliens from outer space and anger against the Company which had hired him to build the space drive which would life the quarantine against Earth.
It was a tough problem-made tougher by the Company's double-dealing. And Johnny didn't relish the tought of cracking it with a whip on his back and a knife at his throat.
Then he stumbled upon an eccentric young playboy, his pretty but ambitious secretary, and a weird little Alien with collosal strength. Togethr they plotted the piratical flight into space which would earn Earth its rightful place in the Universe.
But they had to hurry-because the Company's strong-arm men were right behind them-and the solar time clock was running out!
The Atom Curtain
By Nick Boddie Williams
Cover by Ed Valigursky
For 270 years, America had been totally cut off from the rest of the world by an impenetrable wall of raging atomic fury. To the frightened countries of the Old World, what had once been the greates of all powers was now the most fearful of all mysteries.
No man ached to know what lay behind that frightful barrier more than Emmett O'Hara, restless air-sentinel of the International Patrol-whose American ancestors had been stranded in Britain the day the Atom Curtain was raised.
Then, on December 20, in the year 2230, while on routine patrol, O'Hara did the impossible. He broke through the barrier-and lived! But the full story of O'Hara's discoveries in Atomic America surpasses even what you've imagined so far.
Covers look clean, but there's a faint patina of handling dirt, and light corner wear. Spine is worn at the corners, ruubed white along one side edge. Pages are lightly browned. Binding is broken at the junture of the two novelse.
