William R. Burkett, Jr. Announces A MATTER OF LOGISTICS
After a half century, William R. Burkett, Jr. has written a science fiction book that might just equal his long-ago classic Sleeping Planet. Titled A Matter of Logistics, this new book is first of a two-part story. His fansare loving it.
Here in Burkett's new book, humankind is trying to survive a different kind of invader - itself. After being banished into deep space and forgotten, these outcasts made contact with alien species and raised a great army for their return. But an ensuing stalemate between the forces required new tactics. So the enemy infiltrated the isolated planet as stealthily as a virus and like a virus was mutating the native beings for the enemy's use. And they recruited a penetration agent of peculiarly powerful mental abilities, built him a perfect clone body, and sent him to find out if the infection was so advanced they might have to kill the host by destroying the planet that its inhabitants called Earth . . . It was simply a matter of logistics!
Absolutely Amazing eBooks is honored to publish this new volume from Bill Burkett, a writer who was listed in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction while still in his teens. A Matter of Logistics was fostered by Burkett's correspondence with his mentor, John W. Campbell, Jr., the legendary editor of Analog Magazine.
