Fiction, Science fiction

Johnny Parent was driven by a furious anger - anger against the cocky aliens from outer space and anger against the company which had hired him to build the space drive which would lift the quarantine against Earth.

It was a tough problem - made tougher by the company's double-dealing. And Johnny didn't relish the thought of cracking it with a whip on his back and a knife at his throat.

Then he stumbled upon an eccentric young playboy, his pretty but ambitious secretary and weird little alien with colossal strength. Together they plotted the piratical flight into space which would earn Earth its due place in the Universe.

But they had to hurry - because the company's strong men were right behind them - and the sola time clock was running out!
