The Evil That Men Do / The Purloined Planet

By John Brunner

Rating: 3 stars

Note: my copy only included ‘The Evil That Men Do

An amateur hypnotist discovers more than he expected when he shows off his skill at a party and a young woman’s mind lies in the balance.

This feels something like a medical detective story, where the protagonist has to figure out what’s wrong with the patient before something terrible happens. It’s got that somewhat naively eager view of the power of hypnosis from the early to mid part of the last century which dates it somewhat but it’s a fairly entertaining read, as long as its read in the same way as you’d watch something like Diagnosis: Murder.
