Curtis 07020 The Man Whose Name Wouldn't Fit
The Man Whose Name Wouldn't Fit
By Theodore Tyler
In 1968, when computers were barely out of the vacuum-tube era, this was clearly science-fiction; now it's just an amusing romp.
There was not room at United metals for both Albert Duane Cartwright-Chickering (age 62) and Randolf Datatronic (model 8080). Randolf, shiny new computer, assumed that all UMC employees had last names with twenty or fewer letters. The senior marketing analyst had 21, counting the hyphen.
Randolf was in. Cartwright-Chickering was out. And that leads to one of the nuttiest revolutions ever imagined, sort of like the Lavender Hill Mob comingling with the Minutemen under the management of Bill Gates.
First paperback printing, 1970. Clean cover with edge and corner wear. Spine has a couple of horizontal wrinkles, and is rubbed at the bottom. Pages are off-white. Binding is tight and square.
