Arcot, Morey and Wade a.k.a. The Black Star #2: Islands of Space by John W. Campbell Jr. (1956)



Mass Market Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. 

John Campbell’s book was written as a sequel to ‘The Black Star Passes… and believe me, it was a world-beater in those days.

‘Arcot, Wade, Morey and their computer, Fuller, put together a ship which will travel faster than light… they give us what may have been the first space-warp drive. The concept was simple; to make it plausible wasn’t – unless you were John Campbell.

‘With this out-of-space drive they hightail it among the stars. They locate the fugitive planets of the Black Star… find a frozen cemetery-world of a lost race… then head out for another galaxy… and wind up in a knock-down-drag-out interplanetary war in the other galaxy.’
-P. Schuyler Miller, Astounding Science Fiction
