In Part: "The Sun was a brilliant diamond in the sky...Out here in the vastness of space, near the second largest planet of the Solar System, the sun gave out only one per cent of the light it cast on man's home planet...Lucky Starr gazed thoughtfully at the visiplate which centered the image of the distant Sun. John Bigman Jones watched with him...'But hold on, Lucky, we're a hundred million miles below the plane of the Ecliptic. We ought to be able to see Mars below the Sun...You can make out Earth...'Who in space wants to see earth? There isn't anything there but people...silence fell uneasily within the confined pilot room of the Shooting Starr...Saturn meant danger...Saturn had taken on a new face of doom to the peoples of the Terrestrial Federation...." In fine condition, with a paper clip impression on the top of each page.
