Gammell, Leon L., The Annotated Guide to Startling Stories, Starmont House, 1986, p.18. “Even though Captain Future’s own magazine had been dropped from publication, the character proved so popular that other novels were still written about him and appeared from time to time in the pages of Startling Stories. I understand this one was written by Edmond Hamilton, the originator of the series, under this house pseudonym for some unknown reason or other. This novel is typical of its kind, the usual fast-paced wild adventures among the inhabitants of various alien worlds, with a hint of mystery in this one, and even vaguely Lovecraftian overtones with the temporary revival in the final chapter of the Kangas, those mighty beings who once ruled the Universe before the rise of man or even man’s immediate predecessors. Reprinted in 1968 in paperback by Popular Library as Danger Planet. “
