The Power Planet by Murray Leinster:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
"For months readers have asked us for a story by Murray Leinster. Here is one of unusual merit, even for this well-known author. The Peace Conference, The League of Nations and every other body delegated to secure world
peace might do well to give this tale a careful reading. Although we have no
means of adopting the authors solution as yet, the fundamental idea is excellent
and might well be used. “The Power Planet” is a plausible tale of scientific
fiction, beautifully written.
