Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Cometeers
by Jack Williamson

I have to go with the blurb from a 1967 paperback version:

"a spaceship twelve million miles long, the secret weapon that controls the Universe, a superhuman traitor to all mankind and, defying mortal peril, fantastic dangers, and the dread powers of the invincible Cometeers, the grandest trio of swashbucklers in all of science fiction - Jay Kalam, Hal Samdu and the incomparable Giles Habibula!"

'Nuff said.

('The Cometeers' by Jack Williamson)
