Simply marvellous old chap!
From the very well-crafted dialogue, heavy with Victorian morals and attitudes, to the boundless adventure of intrepid explorers; this is a great story of exploration, danger and discovery set in the damp Venusian jungle. Manned gliders, saurial aid and dangerous native fauna provide a colourful backdrop to what begins as a scientific quest for a new ore.
Our heroes are typical of the days' explorers - armed with intelligence, a sense of moral superiority, and a near endless supply of biscuits. Once they discover the all too human designs behind the mysterious recent goings-on, the resolution becomes one of high drama and ultimately hope that common sense and rightness will prevail.
A really enjoyable read - well worth your time!
