PURPLE-6 by Henry Brinton


Email this review


Purple is the alert for impending, universal doom and this follows the unnerving events at a British Research Station after a space-probe, destined for Mars, comes down in South Devon. The second revelation that the Russians have copied their anti missile missile leads to a careful check by the M.I.'s Potter which unfortunately stirs up and destroys other things in its course, a marriage among them... More than just intellectually intimidating, this takes a geiger count of human and moral values which are as much at stake as lives in the uneasy expectation of all-out atomic warfare. Superior.
