The story has promise with a strange object crashing near a moon base, followed by some terrifying events. But the science seems not just outdated but also implausible. And for a long time the leaders of the base are clueless as to what is happening, although it seems pretty obvious. Maybe there are reasons why it wasn't published before.
Glad I only paid $0.99 for this, since it feels like a bit of a cheat.
So sit back and enjoy a master of the genera. His like will never be seen again.
Child of Space is standard sci-fi, and there’s nothing wrong with that. I could do without the misleading quote: “A never before seen novel from master of the genre, E. C. Tubb!” At 142 pages, A novel this is not, but a novella. And a pretty decent novella at that. Anyone familiar with the sci-fi genre will have no problem predicting certain plot points, but we all need easy fiction now and again.
Part monster movie, part humanistic treatise, Child of Space is a 3.5-star read, and those of you with a Kindle Unlimited subscription should pick it up for free.
