Slan Hunter - A. E. Van Vogt and Kevin J. Anderson

Secret police clueless about what is really going on.

When the head of the human secret police discovers that the President is actually a slan, arresting him and Jommy Cross gives the tendrilless slan group freedom to act unopposed. When the somewhat incompetent spook is told the real story they have tot ry and work together without getting blown up. Luckily the other two and friends have some plans in place.

"Mutants are cropping up everywhere—it's a veritable plague!"

The tendrilless have control of Earth, and Jommy and company turn to his shotgun packing granny for help, hoping to find some allies.

Slans to the rescue.

It isn't good for the older generation in this book, as the hunt for Jommy and the tendrilless realisation that further true slans are being born, no matter what they do. A surprise waits in space for everybody concerned.

3.5 out of 5
