Elisabeth from Milwaukie, OR
This is a delightfully retro read, full of characters who looked like they stepped right out of Madmen.
Each story starts out with a bang and moves along quickly. There's a little continuity, but you could basically open it at any point and get right into the action.
Full of fantastical plots and far-out "science," this book is a fun slice of vintage action-adventure!
