DescriptionMurray Leinster [pseudonym of Will F. Jenkins]. Planet of Dread Corrected Typescript. 73 pages, 8.5" x 11", ribbon copy on plain paper, with holographic corrections in pencil.
Leinster has made a significant number of editorial instructions and corrections on this typescript, even changing the title of the novella from Nightmare Planet to Planet of Dread. He even crosses out the previous title on the original envelope, included with the typescript. Also accompanying the typescript is a small rectangular piece of paper upon which Leinster has evidently typed an advertisement blurb. All pages show moderate toning, with minor edge wear to a few pages. Page 73 shows noticeable edge wear, with a 1" open tear to the left edge and a 1" closed tear to the right edge. Overall, the typescript is in near fine condition, and a welcome addition to any library of classic science fiction, and especially desirable to science fiction magazine collector.
Planet of Dread was first published in the May 1962 issue of Fantastic, and later collected in The Most Thrilling Science Fiction Stories Ever Told #10, Fall 1968. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
