Abstract:

"In the 22nd century Earth was controlled by a cabal of genetic freaks, superior to "normal" men because of their powers of telepathy and precognition. Mere ordinary men didn't have a chance. Suddenly, however, there was a ray of hope--Thors Provoni was coming back. Provoni had stolen a spaceship, escaped from Earth and gone out to the stars in search of another intelligent race that would help end the slavery of homo sapiens--he had been given up as lost. He was coming back now with representative of a powerful alien race that would champion the rights of man. Who was this inhuman savior? And what was the price of this friend from Frolix 8?"--Page 4 of cover.
