What discoveries are made on the Planet of the Dying Sun? 24 Nov. 2004
By Bruce Gray - Published on
In book 11 of this Space Opera, Perry Rhodan and his crew continue their quest to discover whether or not "The Planet of Eternal Life" exists, or if it is just another rumor.

In "The Planet of the Dying Sun," they are sent in an unusual manner to a system hundreds of light years from their previous position in the Vega system - there to discover another piece of the puzzle that hopefully will lead them to the Planet of Eternal Life.

After the adventures of "The Ghosts of Gol", they find themselves in an area of space that does not appear to be on the Arkonide star charts. Using a small space fighter, Rhodan eventually discovers that they are near a huge dying sun that only has one planet. They begin to explore that planet and discover a contradiction. There are glowing globes of gas that project waves of hatred at any mutant capable of telepathy. There is also another thought - a thought of play time. Rhodan quickly realizes that these two thoughts are from two races of beings. The glowing globes are the source of the hatred. Not until all the glowing globes are destroyed do the telepathic mutants get any relief from the thoughts of hate. Rhodan also discovers that the thoughts of playtime come from the other inhabitants of the planet - a race of beings that can only be described as "mouse-beavers".

Due to unusual events that keep happening to items on their spaceship, they eventually discover a clue in, believe it or not, the mouse-beaver caves, and then continue their quest for the Planet of Eternal Life. But not before picking up a surprise. More will be revealed about that surprise in later books. From here they journey to visit "The Rebels of Tuglan".

I've never been this impressed by a series. The old Saturday Morning Cliffhangers of Buck Rodgers and Flash Gordon come to mind when reading this marvelous series of books - a series that is still being published in Germany and is now well over 1,800 books. It's too bad that American publishers stopped this series after only 125 books or so. I had to learn to speak, read, and write German in order to continue reading Perry Rhodan.

This book also contains another editorial, another science fiction movie section, and another fan letters page. Well worth reading the entire series.

Still on the trail of the World of Eternal Life, Rhodan and company are pretty freaky when telekinetic accidents and mishaps keep happening on the Stardust, until they work out there are two sentient races on the planet, including a race of extremely diurnal intelligence-wise parasychological mouse-beavers.
