  • Gammell, Leon L., The Annotated Guide to Startling Stories, Starmont House, 1986, p. 68. “Amusing story of Captain Future’s robot pal, Grag, and the nervous breakdown he imagined he was about to suffer, caused from being in intimate contact with humans so much of the time. How he quells the revolt of the “free” mining machines on Dis, remote satellite of Pluto, is a riot.”
