PRAGNELL, FESTUS. - The Machine-God Laughs.
Los Angeles, Griffin Publishing 1949. Octavo publisher's cloth and dustwrapper (this laminated later, apparently with clear contact). ¶ It seems inconceivable but apparently Festus Pragnell is not a pseudonym. This appears to be his third and last book. A badly written thriller involving a race to beat the evil Chinese in developing a 'super-intelligent mechanical brain' - which once developed takes over its own growth, the war, and spawns itself. Mechanical brains, rocket ships, television, and the mushroom clouds of atom bombs - the preoccupations of the age combined - crude but timely.AUD 40.00 [Appr.: EURO 28.5 US$ 30.65 | £UK 24.75 | JP¥ 3408] Book number 1719
