About the Book

American author Murray Leinster wrote the science fiction book Operation: Outer Space. The novel is "a fast-paced, caustic effort that is largely a parody on the future of mass communications," according to Galaxy critic Groff Conklin. Anthony Boucher complimented the satirical aspects of the book in a similar way, although he felt that the book fell short of becoming a front-ranker due to "a small lack of actual bite and passion." Space travel and the discoveries made are the subjects of this excellently written fantasy Sci-Fi space opera adventure thriller by Murray Leinster. A planet with glaciers and volcanoes, one with enormous herds of animals that resemble cattle, and one with arid stone are all discovered.These guys travel to the moon, the only extraterrestrial planet still inhabited by humans at the beginning of this tale, in order to assist a wealthy client's insecure adult kid in achieving the notoriety he longs for from the outside world. The "Dabney" field, a galaxy-secret that helps transport these folks hundreds of light-years away for the adventure of a lifetime, is faked by this young man in order to do this.
