About The Book
WHY DID THE FBI WANT «DEADLINE» CENSORED? Hugo and Nebula Award winner Robert Silverberg says, «Deadline’s publication caus[ed] the FBI to investigate both Cartmill, Astounding Science Fiction, John W. Campbell, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and L. Sprague de Camp.» Author Cleve Cartmill, editor John W. Campbell, publisher’s Street & Smith, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, and L. Sprague de Camp were only some of those who came under government investigation after security officials learned of the contents of what was to become science fiction’s most controversial brainchild? Why? You will discover the startling answers in Jean Marie Stine’s amazing introduction to this first-ever collection of Golden Age author, Cartmill’s work. Included in this mammoth volume are four complete novellas, the too-close to reality for the government, «Deadline,» the noirish outer space mystery, «Some Day We’ll Find You,» the intellectual thriller of an attempted revolution against a future theocracy, «With Flaming Swords,» and the thought-provoking story of a man whose desire to be a normal, patriotic citizen inadvertently lead to his society’s «Overthrow.» But, be warned: Cartmill questioned authority and traditional explanations, and told his stories to inspire readers to see and question the shortcomings of their own society. So, if you are completely comfortable with your government, society and life, and never want to doubt what you’re told, put down this book immediately and do not read any further. Cleve Cartmill (1908-1964) was a reporter, radio operator and inventor. He is most famous for «Deadline,» the Murchison And Co., Space Salvagers series, and his short novels for the legendary Unknown magazine. This book’s editor, Jean Marie Stine is a well-know science fiction author and anthologist. During the late 1960s she served as a personal assistant to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry; and in the 1970s she wrote the now classic The Prisoner: A Day in the Life, based on Patrick McGoohan’ cult television series.
