The Town from Planet Five

Town That Took Off / Girls from Planet 5
An omnibus of novels by

From 1955 and 1958 come these two short novels about a future that's come and past. Did it turn out the way Richard Wilson imagined? Sadly, no, because these stories are full of buxom spacewomen, Texas-style heroes, factory-sized monsters and a few of the most politically incorrect crones you'll ever meet. There's sexism in these pages but it's hard to say which sex is being aimed at. Richard Lupoff's introduction tells the story of the author and sets the mood for a future where cities fly and girls are in charge.
