The Zoromes launch a war for the freedom of two planets

Back cover text

World of no return

When the star-travelling machine men of Zor discovered the twin-world system of Dlasitap, they thought it only a curios astronomical phenomenon. But when they landed on one of those planets, they discovered a world ruled by harsh tyranny, and encountered the rightful leader of these two worlds, who was now confined in exile.

The Zoromes' fight to overthrow the double-planet usurpers is an exciting tale of action and boundless imagination that ranks with the best of the famous Professor Jameson series.

Interior text

The mysterious marauders

Below the spaceship of the Zoromes lay a crude alien city, a vast assemblage of rambling huts. A very high and thick wall surrounded the city, and this brought curiosity from the star-travelers.

"A wall is usually meant to keep something inside or else outside. Being around a city, I should say it is to keep something out."

"The something must be a colossus to require a wall as large as that one."

"Not necessarily a colossus. The wall may require special height to keep out a type of creature whose natural facilities enable it to jump very high — or the menace may carry means of climbing."

But even as the Zoromes spoke, the monstrous creatures that threatened this peaceful alien settlement were approaching, unseen. And they presented a danger so incredible that the men of Zor could never have guessed its nature!
