Enter a horrible place where a race has been stranded and will do anything to get revenge...if they ever get a chance. I stormed through this book just waiting for the captives to get their freedom. They have to endure a horrendous climate that goes from one extreme to another, live with ferocious beasts, hell...everything sucks there. I don't want to give anything else away, but I will highly recommend this masterpiece. Science fiction fans will love this book, it is 100% worth every second spent reading it.

I've been reading science fiction for more than 60 years, going all the way back to Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein, van Vogt Stewart, Hamilton and--of course--Godwin. Tom's "The Survivors" was my best sf read in 1959. It tells a story of triumph that must be read to be appreciated. Once I read it, in a book I borrowed from a friend, I was so hooked that I just had to own it. When the soft-cover edition came out in 1960, retitled "Space Prison", I snapped it up. I've read "Space Prison" at least 20 times in the almost 60 years I've owned it; it's that good. My copy has so deteriorated with both age and handling that it's now simply a collection of loose pages sandwiched between covers that are almost as fragile as the pages themselves and probably wouldn't survive another read. Thankfully, I now have the ebook version of one of my favorite books of all time. This is a Great Read that will never grow old for fans of classic science fiction. The story it tells could have been written yesterday; it's "dated" only in a reference to Venus as a place of human colonization--a common belief before US and Soviet satellite visits proved otherwise.
