P. Schuyler Miller reviewed the novel favorably, writing "[Taine] is standing at your elbow, nudging you with evident relish when you come to passages that were fun to write." Thrilling Wonder Stories also received the novel favorably, declaring that the author "proves his right to the semi-legendary eminence he holds for followers of the fantastic presented via plausible pseudo-science", but faulted Taine for weak characterization, saying "His cast of players comprise a collection of stock dramatic types and no more".
