D-44 Sentinels Of Space / Ultimate Invader GOOD
No one - and I mean No One handled the "aliens-among-humans" theme better than Eric Frank Russell; and, as a bonus, he did it with humor and wit.
Sentinels From Space
By Eric Frank Russell
Cover by Bob Schulz
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!
