Other Comments: The last of the space trilogy stories is set on Earth. Set in a town which is a sort of composite of Oxford and Cambridge, the story concerns the infiltration of the university by a group which is ostensibly set up to fund scientific research, but has a secret agenda. One of the college dons is drawn further and further within the circles of the conspiracy, until its full horrors are revealed. The scene in which he first begins to throw off the chains bound upon him by assorted appeals to his vices is one of the most inspiring passages of fiction I have ever read. Ransom appears again, although he is fairly distant from the action until near the end. – Greg Slade
