Overview

The star Mira was unpredictably variable. Sometimes it was blazing, brilliant and hot. Other times it was oddly dim, cool, shedding little warmth on its many planets. Gresth Gkae, leader of the Mirans, was seeking a better star, one to which his "people" could migrate. That star had to be steady, reliable, with a good planetary system. And in his astronomical searching, he found Sol. With hundreds of ships, each larger than whole Terrestrial spaceports, and traveling faster than the speed of light, the Mirans set out to move in to Solar regions and take over. And on Earth there was nothing which would be capable of beating off this incredible armada-until Buck Kendall stumbled upon THE ULTIMATE WEAPON.

This is not a good example of what John Campbell was capable of doing. Even though it appeared to be written in the late fifties, early sixties, based on the story content and references, I believe that it was actually written well before 1940. Nowhere near as well written as the J.W. Campbell stories presented in Arcot, Morley and Wade.

Why is there no explanation of the story? I guess that we're expected to just jump in feet first.
