Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Roy Malcolm is the surprised winner of a T.V. contest sponsored by World Airways and for his prize chooses to go to the Inner Station -- a rocket base hundreds of miles above the Earth. After undergoing a searching aptitude and physical fitness test, he finds himself en route for the Station -- little expecting the terrifying mysteries and hazards he was to encounter when he arrived.
