The Legion Of Space - Jack Williamson

Shakespearean space musketeers.

Or, Porthos = Falstaff?

Anyway, a newly minted Legion of Space officer is sent to a planetary outpost where he finds that elder members of his wealth family support a return to monarchy over democratic science.

They plan to do this with the help of an alien invasion, and all that stands between them is John Star, your space princess in control of a super weapon, and her loyal trio of guards from the Legion.

Cue exciting adventure of monsters, gliders, aliens, gas, tunnels, superweapons, and the bemoaning of a lack of grog.

Pretty entertaining.

3 out of 5
