    Interesting mix of hard sci fi and a basic romance novel plot 2 brothers fighting over the same girl and their own childhood issues There were definitely problems of plot but it kinda worked I mean the central conflict between the ex humans and the fringe uoxians was never described or resolved but just gave us who the 'good guy' and who the 'bad guy' was it was enough of a framework to tell the romance story and give us some fun scienceI liked the way the far future was handled it made sense and was kinda uniue The real star of the ship EPL the Ever Perfect Lieutenant he was hilarious in a basic 50s British soldier sort of way

    'ONE MAN VS THE YEAR ONE MILLIONTime traveling UFO’s jerk our hero one million years into the future and launch him on a trans galactic venture brightened by such incidental items as an attractive post homo sapien race of evolved simians and an Ultimate Spaceship Chasing mysterious celestial phenomena was part of Zack Halleck’s Air Force duties so it wasn’t strange that he was assigned to assist in his brother’s experiment For his scientist brother had devised a method of deliberately attracting and trapping any such sky objects But the experiment backfired – and the Hallecks themselves were its victims When Zack opened his eyes again it was on the Earth of a million years in the future And Zack learned that the only way he could rescue his brother and return to his own time would be to accept a role as a human pawn in a conflict of galactic supermen'Blurb from the 1958 Ace Double D 286 paperback editionZack Halleck is an Air Force pilot assigned to track mysterious objects in the skies above Earth He is none too happy to be reassigned to a related duty which is to assist with a project devised by his scientist brother Carl The brothers had always been competitive with Carl winning every competition up to and including wooing and marrying Zack's girl Sylvia when Zack went missing in action presumed dead Carl has invented an electronic screen which can somehow attach a homing signal to the strange spheres of light that have been appearing in the skies When Carl and Sylvia are up a mountain fine tuning the device Zack is left in the laboratory; the only place from which the screen can be turned off It is then that the green lights appear seemingly heading straight for Carl and Sylvia Zack still angry from a lifetime of belittling delays switching off the device which is attracting the mysterious lights When he does it is too late Sylvia and Carl are gone He then flies off determined to confront the UFOs and crashes into one When he awakes he finds himself on an Earth of the far future being looked after by humanoids descended from apes of our time Humanity he soon discovers has also evolved into two separate lines of beings of almost pure energy Some appear as white spheres and some as green The white ones are benevolent while the green ones have enslaved some humanoid races and are working towards a goal of a kind of mind meld singularity by combining their consciousnesses to produce a single mindIt is they who have kidnapped Carl and Sylvia for reasons that frankly don't make a lot of sense and it is up to Zack with the help of a Late Humanity thinking warship to rescue themWollheim's attempt to explore the sibling rivalry aspect is a bit clunky but at least gives the tale a bit of depth Comparisons can be made to 'Doc' Smith's Arisians and Eddorians in the Lensman series since they were two races diametrically opposed in ideologies One supposes that SF authors of the Fifities employed metaphors either consciously or unconsciously to represent the struggle between Communism and The Free World or at least how they perceived it or maybe I'm reading far too much into it

    I read this book several times as a youth it was a fascinating read to say the least It's a great peek into different levels of futuristic technology I still consider key parts of it often and was pleasantly surprised to see it listed here at Goodreads I highly recommend this book as a memorable read My copy has aged considerably as I'm sure most have but overall it's still in good condition I may have to add it to my future reading lineup

    This story from my own Golden Age delivers all the old pulse pounding sense of wonder that I find lacking in so much science fiction of today and it doesn't sacrifice a character driven plot to do so Along the way it also delivers refreshing ideas on the nature of UFOs This is amazing stuff that may ignite my interest in fiction again if only people would still write this way

    I really liked the last spaceship and its EPL Ever Perfect Lieutenant Admit here that I used the idea for a space ship in one of my books
