Trouble Planet

My mother has been clearing out some books that she feels she'll never read again, and I of course (with her permission) have been siphoning off a few for my own use. I'm particularly pleased to have the early C. S. Lewis pamphlets, such as Beyond Personality, to swell my little collection; but I think my favourite, which I admit I kept only for the jacket, is the aptly-named Trouble Planet (1954):

Having sat unread on her shelf for the last half century, it deserves wider circulation, don't you think?
