Mientras Wade Harper, fabricante de micro herramientas, viaja en coche, oye en su mente la llamada de auxilio de un hombre, un agente de policía que ha sido atacado. Antes de fallecer, Harper logra recabar ciertas pistas para la investigación. Sin embargo, el talento de Harper, que es capaz de leer las mentes, deberá usarse para una amenaza mayor.‘Tres que capturar’ (Three to Conquer, 1956), del británico Eric Frank Russell, es una buena historia de ciencia ficción, con una primera part [...]

"What was that slut smirking at?" he asked."You," Harper informed. "She's about I.Q. 70 but that doesn't spoil her appetite for a tasty hunk of man.".Sometimes I think I'm numbed to fifties macho talk and then I discover gems like this.

While written in the mid-50s, and starting off as what appears to be a pretty standard police procedural (with the addition of the world's only known telepath), the story really takes off when one additional SFnal element is added, and the effect on the story (and myself as the reader) was explosive. I was reading along, lulled into the familiar beats of what appeared to be a familiar kind of story, when BOOM!, the story was wrenched off into an entirely new, but not unsupported, direction.

Three to Conquer was a lot of fun! Obviously, telepathy was a popular idea in this time period of science fiction, as several of the Hugo nominees I've read have focused on this idea. Three to Conquer started out as something that appeared to be a pretty typical and mundane mystery with a paranormal twist, but quickly took a sharp left turn and was off and running from there. The book kept up a breakneck pace and had a satisfying conclusion. Even though I really enjoyed it, I might bump it down [...]

I first read this story as a three-part serial in Astounding SF magazine back in the late '50s. I was surprised and delighted that it held up so well on a re-read all this time later.

There's a few spots that lacked conviction, but this reads as an old style detective thriller.

Fast-paced, inventive, but really just good pulp fiction.

picked it up for a penny + $4.00 shipping. The style is very old and asprects of the plot are plodding but I enjoyed the description of what life would be like in 1980 and the net optimism of the book. just reminds me of my youthful sf reading

Ok story, not as good as some of his other stories.
