The Wailing Asteroid

by Murray Leinster

I first read this book when I was in junior high school in 1960. It totally floored me and I wondered why NASA was having so much trouble getting into space.

If you ever get a chance to see the movie take my word for it an give it a pass. When I saw the movie they made in the late 1960's, early 1970's the only thing I recognized was the hero/main character had the memory of the sounds. The movie is complete garbage.

I highly recommend the book and if you have teen age children then let them read it. I think the kids will really enjoy it as I did at that age.

Author of the Day

Madison Kent

As our author of the day, Kent chats about this book of hers, Stalking Jack, how much research she did on London and Whitechapel and how her characters were conceived.
