How Kemlo won his spurs in the first and last great Battle of Space. For, yes, even
to Space, that final goal of all Man's earthly dreams, enmity and war eventually came. But in Space, as
always in the end on Earth, good was to triumph over evil - though
not until a hideous and terrifying danger had been averted.|
The book contains a magnificent description of the building of a Satellite Belt.
