Back cover text

The planet of monsters

When a sun goes nova, the tremendous explosion of its awesome energies destroys all life on the planets surrounding it. So when the Zoromes discovered that the sun of Ajiat would burst into nova in just a few days, they determined to explore the planet and warn any friendly life-forms that might exist there.

But instead of friendship the Zoromes met only savagery, as the brutish inhabitants of this heavy-gravity world attacked their exploring parties. Huge creatures of the air and ground threw themselves at the machine men, and the beasts' power was so great that it overwhelmed even the Zoromes.

Professor Jameson and his comrades found themselves imprisoned on a planet which faced fiery destruction at any minute!
