SPACE TUG by Murray Leinster


Email this review


Joe Kenmore, whom we met in Space Platform the first volume of Shasta's new science fiction series To The Stars, is at work on Earth's first space station and gets to the moon. A snappy narrative, natty as the spaceman's new black and silver uniform and filled with all the astral jargon, space talk and planet prattle you could wish for, takes Joe through his tricks. In space, he and his fellow all-American workers are harassed by powers from behind the Iron Curtain and other mysterious foreign sources, but ""Moon Ho!"" can finally be cried. The series, by the way is designed to tell of man's progressive steps into space, but it reeks of a too snobbish nationalism that precludes international cooperation. A maddeningly cocky story.
