KIRKUS REVIEW

The year is 12,000 A.D. with a culture which makes gods of Uranium, Plutonium, Radium and Ecks and has temple scientists to guard them. The birth of a mutant, Clane, to the ruling family is attended by a crisis and the child, allowed to live in seclusion develops into a supernormal. He is responsible for Martian and Venusian victories, salvages the empire after a barbarian invasion and is ready to protect the system against a possible attack from outer space. A fantasy of future frontiers.
