Description:

Novel, a heady mixture of science fiction and political intrigue. It starts in April 1945 when an atomic bomb explodes on board the U.S.S. Alaska. But the bomb uses thorium Wikipedia rather than uranium! In the explosion's aftermath, Lieutenant-Commander Frank Jacklin finds himself in someone else's body, and that's when things really start happening. The anonymous reviewer at Fantasy Book thought it was one of the best books of the year: "A fast-moving satire of American life, sharp, funny, and to the point." For Groff Conklin (Galaxy, October 1950) the novel lacked credibility: "There have been incredible pieces of pseudo-science fantasy in the past... But this book really should take a prize."
