"Grace and Friendship"
The Captain Future stories were not only populated with magnificent characters, but they were also set in a wild, imaginative, almost psychedelic universe. Edmond Hamilton built worlds and star systems that in many ways completely disregarded what the public knew to be true about outer space, but they did not care. Nearly every planet in our solar system could support life, and danger lurked there, too. Although the original stories took place amongst familiar planets, Hamilton would take fans far beyond anything familiar in later tales.

That remained for Secret Agent "X" to discover as he prowled through a dark and sinister labyrinth of Washington espionage.

"Things Didn't Add Up"
