On a recent outing with my wife we went into a used bookstore. This one is a bit out of the way, most of the local used bookstores have either closed or don't carry what I'm looking for. You see I've got a thing for those old DAW Yellow Spined books that I remember from my youth. Anyways I spied this sharp looking volume on the shelf:
Anyway, I just finished reading it and I have to say for a book written in the early 50's I found it to be quite enjoyable. Not to give away too much but its about a group of Star Rangers during the decline of a vast Space Empire, that find themselves stranded on a forgotten world. Good stuff, ripe for mining material for your sci fi space games i.e. Stars Without Number, X-plorers, etc... The guy on the cover turned out to be a psychic human but I may just have to "steal" the image to work up a new alien race for SWN.
Good Gaming! -B.
