An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.
THE DEMONS HAD TO STOP JOHN BRAVAIS
His secret assignment was simply - to save mankind from the savage dog-like 'things' that used their hands like men. Yet an unknown number of apparently 'human' beings were against him too.
First transformed by surgery into a superman, John Bravais probes ever more deeply into the secret nightmare world of the 'things'. At last, when only his mind remains - trapped in a vast robot war machine on the moon - only by an immense act of will-power can he give humanity a future.
Keith Laumer (1925-1993)
John Keith Laumer was an American science fiction author born in Syracuse, New York. Prior to his career as a writer, Laumer was an officer in the United States Air Force. After war service, he spent a year at the University of Stockholm, and then took two bachelor's degrees in science and architecture at the University of Illinois. His first story, Greylorn, was published in 1959, but he returned to the Air Force the following year, only becoming a full-time writer in 1965. Laumer was extremely prolific and produced three major series and two minor ones, along with a number of independent novels. After 1973, however, illness meant that he published more sparingly. He died in 1993.
