Talents, incorporated by Murray Leinster( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlatans or Prophets? At best, the tiny Kandarian Air Fleet would fight until its last ship was blown into infinity. At worst, it would be annihilated without a chance. To young Captain Bors, either course was unthinkable. The ruthless Dictator of Mekin had already subjugated twenty-two helpless planets. Now he wanted Kandar's unconditional surrender, or his vastly superior forces would blast it out of existence. It took a lot of guts, and the hope that is frequently born of despair, for a military man like Bors to throw in his lot with "Talents, Incorporated," an untried, unscientific organization. Through peculiar gifts of extra-sensory perception, its personnel could, their leader insisted, out-think and out-guess even the most deadly dictator in the history of mankind. Could it? It just might. And it just might not... But there was absolutely nothing to lose, and a free world (and a beautiful girl) to win. Captain Bors made his decision, and the loaded die was cast!

Murray Leinster was a prolific and outstanding writer of Science fiction. He was born William Fitzgerald Jenkins on June 16, 1896 in Norfolk, Virginia and finished his formal education at the age of 13. With the loss of his father's job and subsequent downturn in the family's fortunes, Leinster would not be able to pursue the career in chemistry that he had longed for.
