  • Gammell, Leon L., The Annotated Guide to Startling Stories, Starmont House, 1986, p. 6. “Typical rip-roaring Hamilton space opera. Nothing exceptional, but a rattling good yarn of three adventurers of the spaceways—an Earthling, a Martian and a Venusian–who join forces to combat the malevolent machinations of the evil League of the Cold Worlds to dominate the entire Solar System, including an heroic journey to the radioactive world of Erebus, outermost outpost of Sol’s family. This was possibly the prototype novel for the later Captain Future novels that started in their own magazine, a companion to both Startling Stories and Thrilling Wonder Stories, in Spring of 1940. “
