Learned T. Bulman
An excellent fabrication of old and new science-fiction ideas, "The Stars Are Ours!" is based on the theme that man's desire for personal liberty can overcome all adversity. Some readers may feel the ending is incomplete, and that too much happens in too few chapters, but even they will agree that this is a rip-snorting adventure tale.
