Becher, Don A TICKET TO NOWHERE
Clovis, California: Vega Books, Inc., (1966). B0007FDHK8 First edition: Paperback Original. VSF-13; cover price, $.50. Mass market paperback. A hint of edgewear, pages age-toned, as expected, else a fine, unread copy in illustrated wraps. Crude, but effective cover art shows an enormous head floating over a forested, lake-side vista, and a streamlined spacecraft zooming through the meadows.
Though this Vega sf PBO strongly resembles the format used to issue Lionel Fanthorpe's titles under a variety of pseudonyms, there is no evidence that this is a Fanthorpe penname, or that "Becher" ever wrote anything else. A ticket to nowhere, indeed.
