Fire People – A book in the Matter, Space and Time series.
Fire People is an amazing adventure. The characters are enchanting and the villains are despicable. It is fast paced and fun.
An interesting tale set on the near planet of Mercury. It’s set in the forties, a story of intreague, war and love.
The invasion began innocently enough when the meteor crashed to earth. Then a glow began to emanate from the meteor and everything that entered the light was destroyed. The fate of the Earth is now in the hands of Bob Trevor, a newspaperman, Professor Newland, and others. Would the Earth be saved from the invaders from the Mercutian Light and the invaders from Mercury?
The first of the new meteors landed on the earth in November, 1940. It was discovered by a farmer in his field near Brookline, Massachusetts, shortly after daybreak on the morning of the 11th. Astronomically, the event was recorded by the observatory at Harvard as the sudden appearance of what apparently was a new star, increasing in the short space of a few hours from invisibility to a power beyond that of the first magnitude, and then as rapidly fading again to invisibility. This star was recorded by two of the other great North American observatories, and by one in the Argentine Republic. That it was comparatively small in mass and exceedingly close to the earth, even when first discovered, was obvious. All observers agreed that it was a heavenly body of an entirely new order.
An interesting tale set on the near planet of Mercury. Not only does it explain why the same side face the sun, but how life has evolved there. It’s set in the forties so some of the expressions don’t mean the same as they do today. An altogether exciting story of intreague, war and love.
