By: Cartmill, Cleve

Price: £25.00

Quantity: 1 available


Collects eleven sf stories most of which had been originally published in the sf magazines/pulps of the early 1940's: edited and with an introduction by John Pelan. First of a projected set of five volumes that will collect all of Cartmill's fiction, though I don't think any further volumes have yet appeared. 500 copies printed.

'' Heinlein, Simak, Hubbard, de Camp, Cartmill... These are the foundations upon which John W. Campbell built the Golden Age in Street & Smith's Astounding Science Fiction and Unknown Worlds. All of these authors have had much of their fiction collected and are well-known to today's readers. Cleve Cartmill has been remembered primarily for his notoriously prescient atomic bomb story ''Deadline'', which brought Federal Agents swooping down on Campbell's offices worried that there had been a leak at the Manhattan Project. Cleve Cartmill was far, far more than merely the author of this one well-known tale; his fantasy novellas rank among some of the best to have been published in Unknown and his science fiction still holds up well today some sixty years later''.
