F-313 Cummings A BRAND-NEW WORLD Fair
A Brand New World
By Ray Cummings
The coming of the planet Xenephrene to the Solar System had caused complete chaos on Earth, as the world's axis was shifted by the powerful new gravitational effects of the strange planet. The entire Northern Hemisphere became uninhabitable, and Earth's population and governments were forced to evacuate hurriedly to South America, Africa and Australia. Panic and riots broke out, and the world's overburdened governments were powerless to control them.
That was the situation when the first spaceship from Xenephrene landed on Earth and threw up a red barrage so deadly that Earth's most powerful weapons were annihilated on contact.
Then came a second visitor from the mysterious planet: a beautiful young girl with silver hair and innocent dark eyes, who brought a warning and an appeal from the people of her world.
First paperback edition, 1964. Cover is clean, a bit dull, with edge and corner wear. Spine is creased in the center and nubbed at the corners. Pages are lightly browned. Binding is tight, slightly concave.
