|ex-ChUSFA: stamp on first inside page, page 85. MORE INFO|
The Ticking Is In Your Head - a rather hard-to-find novel by Leonard Daventry. This is the second of 2 sequels to his first SF novel, A Man of Double Deed, and features telepath Claus Coman, one of the Keymen who consider themselves the custodians of humanity recovering from an Atomic disaster. (These sequels first appeared in an original omnibus from Doubleday in 1969.)
Claus Coman is back from space to face an even greater threat to the Earth itself. He and his fellow Keymen are being systematically destroyed by the Jokers, corrupt men who seek to use their telepathic abilities only to increase their own power. Caught in the middle are the Purgers, well-intentioned businessmen who become unwitting tool's of the Joker's ambitions. The end of civilization is imminent, and even Coman's remarkable powers seem stretched beyond their limits.
