In Our Hands, the Stars
By Harry Harrison
The Daleth Effect: It started in a small way when a test bench disintegrated.
Within weeks it produced a power that could lift man to the stars.
And within months it was the centre of a desperate power struggle - with Earth as the prize.
Harry Harrison (1925 - 2012)
