(From the publisher):
This long awaited novel by A.E. Van Vogt, master of the futuristic fantasy, features Spaceport, a special city with peculiar problems of its own. It is the scene of a desperate generation battle.
Space Commander Lane returns to Earth after a year's strenuous travel to the unmapped spaces between the stars, harassed by ever watchful, hostile aliens. He finds that things have changed out of all recognition: the male adults have deserted the cities to fight and explore, and the children, left to their own devices, have assumed power.
The situation is explosive; the results terrifying. Once again Van Vogt has brought fiction all too uncomfortably close to reality. This is the master at his very best.
