Giant Ants Attacking! Oh My!

Badger Books was a late 50's, early 60's British publisher of mostly forgettable science fiction. In fact it was so terrible at times, that a book was a published a few years ago called "Down the Badger Hole," which highlighted the terrible writing. A fellow named Lionel Fanthorpe wrote many of the books, including the one I am highlighting in this blog. I will continue to highlight more Badger Books in future editions. What they lack in writing, they make up for in wonderfully sensational cover illustrations. I just love "Fiends"... giant ants attacking people reminds me of the lovably terrible movie "Empire of the Ants." There's so much cheese here, all I need is some bread to make a sandwich.
