“Edmond Hamilton needs no introduction from the likes of me … or, for that matter, from the likes of any of us. He is the author of some of the best space opera ever written (the majority of the CAPTAIN FUTURE series in the old Thrilling Wonder) and some of the most sensitive, provocative modern science fiction (WHAT’S IT LIKE OUT THERE?) He is writing better now than he ever did and THE BROKEN STARS is Hamilton combining the two sides of his writing at the top of his form. This is a story which will not be forgotten.”
