The Fellowship of the Hand.
By Edward D. Hoch.
Stoneshire Books, London, 1981.
I’m just being childish again, aren’t I?
And I’m not sure why, but the cover and the breathless synopsis …
Jazine got in the way — so HAND decided to let him think things over — as he went hurtling over the safety railing to the lions below!
… puts me in mind of a cut-price James Bond, as told by Victor Appleton, author of the Tom Swift books from the 50s (only maybe not quite so science-y).
