CHILDREN OF THE VOID

Consul paperback, 1963. Cover artist uncredited.

"The earth is annihilated by a nuclear explosion and a handful of survivors are isolated on a planet shifted from its rotation around the sun and veering off its axis to drift aimlessly in the void of space to a destiny unknown. 
In this sequel to world in eclipse, William Dexter creates a horrifying glimpse of the future. 
The bewildered and terrified refugees drift to the moons of Jupiter, meet the beast men of Varang-Varang and hear the noises of the wise ones who speak in every known language. Perhaps only they can help the destitute colony, groping helplessly in an everionment so fearful as to scar the imagination."
