Brain Twister

Brain Twister by Mark Phillips (Randall Garrett and Laurence M. Janifer)

“Mark Phillips” is, or are, two writers: Randall Garrett and Laurence M. Janifer. Their joint pen-name, derived from their middle names (Philip and Mark), was coined soon after their original meeting, at a science-fiction convention. Both men were drunk at the time, which explains a good deal, and only one has ever sobered up. A matter for constant contention between the collaborators is which one.

Originally published as That Sweet Little Old Lady, Brain Twister follows the adventures of FBI agent Kenneth J. Malone as he attempts to unravel the machinations of a telepathic spy. His first problem: how do you find a telepath to catch the first telepath?

The novella was nominated for the Hugo Award in 1960.

Subject: Review Brain Teister
Catherine Eastman did a good job narrating this book. I got a kick out of her gruff impersonations. The book is different and it was actually nice to listen to a different type of subject matter.

Subject: Brain Twister
Grating, overdone voice of the reader makes this story impossible for me to listen to.

A good story that could have been a predecessor to The 'Men in Black'.
