F-320 Brunner MARTIAN SPHINX Good
The Martian Sphinx
By John Brunner
(As Keith Woodcott)
By the 21st century, the world was drowning in its own population. A solution had to be found quickly---and it was, in "gravi-power." Wonderful, unending source of power; only, the scientists knew that its use was reducing Earth's distance from the Sun at a dangerous rate. But if another planet's gravi-power could be harnessed . . .
An expedition was launched to Mars, known to be uninhabited---except that a woman was wandering around on its surface. She claimed to have come from another galaxy to warn Earth of a terirble menace, and thee was a huge polyhedraon of metal emanating a force very much like that of gravi-power!
Someone else had discovered it? A million years ago? A thousand? Now? Friend, or enemy??
