Series Father John Carmody (2)
DESCRIPTION:
The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction: "Father John Carmody, the plump, bustling, humorous, shrewd interplanetary priest. In this story he has to face a new and terrible problem, in which error on his part can mean death, physical and spiritual, to all the passengers and crew of a spaceship ... and possibly to the Galaxy itself. For no other planet offers such subtle and tempting dangers as Abatos, nor does any other world acknowledge such a ruler as that awe-inspiring being known as Father, who may be a superman, a charlatan — or a god."
