New Release

 

Our newest title is by the brilliant scientist and best-selling sci-fi author Sir Fred Hoyle, FIFTH PLANET (1963). Set in 2087, it follows an expedition of British, Americans and Russians to an alien world, but when they return home, they've unknowingly brought something not human with them.... An enjoyable read for fans of vintage SF, somewhat in the vein of the original Star Trek series. (It's also fun to see how much 2087 resembles 1963: data is still input to computers using punch cards!) Lovely cover design by Lorenzo Princi, part of our series of Hoyle reissues.
