Ballantine 58 RIDERS TO THE STARS 1st Print GOOD
Riders To The Stars
By Curt Siodmak
A novelization of the movie script. Anyone remember this movie? Must have been 1952 or 53. Starred William Lundigan, Richard Carlson, and Herbert Marshall as three men, each driven by secret reasons, who volunteered for the trip that would launch Mankind into the universe:
Gordon: Filled with a need for power, enough power to wipe out the memory of an earlier, terrible shame.
Lockwood: To whom life was worth very little without Susan - perhaps worth nothing at all.
Stanton: A man haunted by the knowledge that a pecial and mysterious fate awaited him.
First Printing, 1953. Some dirt and crinkles; edge and corner wear. Spine has a bit of peeling at the top, and a shallow valley in the center.. Pages are brown. Binding is tight, but glue feels dry.
