The whole thing has a dumbactionmovie logic to it, from a mission staffed with obviously broken people to a gleefully idiotic monster concept.
It's a confection, but one with unexpectedly, possibly unnecessarily, sharp edges to the characters.
And then there is the deathworm orgy.
This is a thing that happened.
i've read some trashy pulp scifi over the years, and this has to be some of the trashiest and pulpiest.
The characters are sexist and racist.
The Deathworm mating ritual was amazingly gratuitous in its details.

There are lasers and robots, strong men and women, and vile monsters who perform unspeakable horrors (need I mention the Deathworm mating scene, brain eating and all).
Good solid science fiction adventure, certainly, with a decent plot and excellent imagination.
Despite sometimes being a bit flat, the characters are infinitely likeable, especially the robots.
So many books to read, but when you spot the racy cover in the used bookstore, invest that big dollar and take it home for a read.
As Matthew the robot would say, "Decision noted, execution proceeds.
" Humanity in the year 2071 is straining at the limits of terrestrial and solar sustainability.
With billions of people placing a demand on Earth’s finite resources, an outlet is needed.
Robot probes have identified planets in other systems capable of supporting human life.
But before they can be colonized they must be proven – a highrisk prospect.
Enter the Expendables: a group of highly talented criminals and misfits who combine technical expertise in their chosen fields with checkered pasts.
Led by James Conrad, a former commander in the United Nations Space Service, they are sent out to explore Kratos, the first viable planet discovered by the probes.
Yet not only must the team determine the planets viability as a colony for humans, they must also answer an additional question – just who or what left the large ruts scarring the planet’s surface?
i wanted the deathworms to win.
ô The Deathworms of Kratos ☆ Just what the doctor ordered.
I had been searching locally many years for this series and lucked out when I found them at the bottom of a box of romance novels.
Getting them for just $4 for the set, I almost couldn't contain my elation.
The chapters are short, making it seem like an effortless read, but the format of the story is odd.
In the first part, every other chapter takes place in the present and the corresponding chapters are of events leading up to this mission.
The second part is strictly in the present.
Near the end of the book there is a chapter made out like brief mission logs.
The final part could be considered the epilogue with brief U.
statements exonerating and commending each of the seven members of the mission.
I've read this is a "Men's Adventure" and I'll agree wit
I thought I would reread this favorite from my youth.
Richard Avery was a pen name for famed British science fiction author Edmund Cooper.
This is the first in a series of four books featuring James Conrad and the Expendables.
They were a crew of criminals and misfits, chosen to prove planets fit for colonization.
Their job was to go in first and step on all the traps and clear them to enable colonists to be brought in from Earth.
I think of it as a kind of Dirty Dozen in space, even though it is not military science fiction.
Seven humans and six robots make up the first mission to the planet of Kratos, an Earthlike planet 16 light years away.
Their they find a mostly pleasant duplicate of Earth in many ways except for the deadly devolved The absolute pinnacle of pulp scifi.
Dry, sardonic and British.
I elect to remain EXPENDABLE.
The science fiction he was writing under his own name at the time was more cerebral and subtle, serious studies of character and society, and The Expendables was an action/adventure series of swashbuckling derringdo, an updating of the more juvenileoriented space opera pulp stories of earlier decades.
Led by the heroic James Conrad, the beautiful Indira Smith, the brilliant Kurt Kwango, and a team of similarly diverse people and intelligent robots, they were a team of explorers sent to prepare the most challenging new planets for human colonization.
Similar to the concept of The Dirty Dozen or The Suicide Squad, they faced situations where the odds were always stacked against them, the going was always rough, and the chances of success were low.
Cooper made a heartfelt attempt to present a
