D-468 SENTINELS FROM SPACE Good
Sentinels From Space
(The Star Watchers)
By Eric Frank Russell
Cover by Bob Schulz
On the cover it's Sentinels OF Space; on the spine, FROM space. Go figure!
Describes a future spacefaring society which has colonized Mars and Venus, and is looking at the next step outward. The colonial populations are entertaining rumblings of discontent, a desire to be free from the "tyranny" of Mother Earth. As an ancillary issue, the radiations encountered during space travel have created a number of mutations, most of them involving extra-sensory powers.
That's the storyline, but it's NOT what the book is all about. To understand more, buy it. Read it. It's a great one!
Second printing (first was the classic Double D-44). More-or-less the same cover picture - and, yes, that IS the face of a young Eric Frank Russell. Cover's a bit dull, with a full-length diagonal crease on the left side. Spine has worn corners and two full-length creases. Binding is broken at both of them, but nothing is loose.
