Tom Corbett - Danger in Space

My brother-in-law, picked up this second-hand hardback book from an Oxfam bookshop in Swansea, Tom Corbett Space Cadet - Danger in Deep Space by Gary Rockwell for 99p.

It is a first edition from 1953 and although showing signs of damage, torn dust jacket, water damage etc, the book is in good condition for its age.

I have only just started reading the book and am up to chapter four. So far the best description I can give is that it is a good yarn! The three illustrations featured below show some of the images of 'what the future will look like'. They may prove useful for Retro Sci-Fi modellers.

The book is in a series of five - from the Venture Library;
  1. Stand by for Mars! (another Tom Corbett Space Cadet Story)

  2. Danger in Deep Space

  3. Rip Foster rides the Grey Planet

  4. Tarzan and the Forbidden City

  5. Tarzan and the City of Gold
