Book cover: “Beware of the Brain Sharpeners” by Philip Curtis; ill. Tony Ross (Anderson Press, 1983)

An underwhelming instalment. The Brain Sharpeners, rather than posing some insidious threat, now play the role of conscientious anti-nuclear interventionists. Their plan is gratuitous and the abducted students have no agency whatsoever. Curtis employs a jocular prose style devoid of actual humour.
