Wilmar H. Shiras. Children of the Atom. [New York]: Gnome Press, [1953].

    First edition. Octavo. 216 pages.

    Publisher's red cloth covers with black lettering on the spine. Dust jacket illustrated by Frank Kelley Frease [sic]. Minor shelf wear, some rubbing and a small tear to the spine of the dust jacket, slight soiling to back of jacket. Altogether a very good copy.

    Shiras (1908 - 1990) also wrote under the name of Jane Howes. She is best known for her novella "In Hiding" which appeared in John W. Campbell, Jr.'s Astounding Science Fiction magazine, November of 1948. This novella and two sequels, "Opening Doors," and "New Foundations" form the first three chapters of Children of the Atom.
