Ryan Comments: Forget mastery of the planet, our hero needs to master the use of either a belt or suspenders.

Published 1970

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 8.50 out of 10)

    If he has to hear Let It Go one more time, he won’t be responsible for his actions.

    Keith Laumer, Clifford Simak, Daniel Keyes, F.L.Wallace and Allen Kim Lang all paid to have their names removed from this cover.

    The planet ain’t the only thing that’s frozen.

    Re: the blurb: if your world is already dominated and invaded (and frozen?), that means you ipso facto don’t have mastery of the universe. So the answer is “Sometime in the past”.

    @fred: Too late. I’d already thought of that.

    @THX: LOL.

    Typical macho move, running around a frozen planet without a shirt on.

    Aliens, machines: I’m more concerned about the giant purple space-sperm that seems about to hit (impregnate?) the planet.

    MacFadden Books like their cover models buff.

    @B’man: And in the buff.
