Ayron IV is a science fiction novel for young adults by Ray Thompson, published in 1975.[1]


Located on the first few pages is a dedicated to message quoting that Ray Thompson was encouraged to write the book by his friends. It is thought to be the author's first published work.[2] The original blue-clothed published book was 99 pages long[1] and stood 7¾ - 9¾" tall.[2]

Plot summary[edit]

Ayron IV is introduced as a strange planet located in a series of off-Earth human civilisations, which are capable of supporting human life and seem uninhabited. Rigg Rowning and his friends Kris and Piet find unusual tracks on the surface of the planet which were not made by any type of vehicle that they had brought.[2]


The novel did not surface much since its initial release and did not spark a sequel despite the note on the dust cover, 'The first in a series of thrilling science fiction stories...'[2]


Whilst there is only one edition of the book, there have been two ISBNs created.
