The Galaxy was caught in the crushing vice of a struggle for power. The political titans of the planets of Mankind were making their bids for supremacy. The contestants: Counce, man of strange powers, authority in the spheres of intellect; and Bassett, man of money-powers, financial and business wizard. As the association of human worlds drew near the teetering edge of revolution, one of those men would be ina position to triumph. The only thing that neither side could foresee was that there were OTHERS hovering among the stars, looking for new worlds to conquer!
