Introductory Note
Among the newer writers now working the science fictional vineyards, Richard C. Meredith has demonstrated a distinctive talent in two recent novels, The Sky Is Filled With Ships and We All Died At Breakaway Station. He has had four strong sf novelettes in Fantastic and Worlds of Tomorrow – and his first sf story was published in Sir Knight when Meredith was in his mid-twenties. Nurtured on Buck Rogers, Planet Comics and Astounding, he built his own chemically fuelled rockets as a teenager. In the army he taught microwave radio theory. He has since worked in electronics, studied biology in college, and tackled freelance advertising copy and graphic design.

Meredith respects technical details in science fiction, yet is able to create high drama within a “hard science” framework. In “Earthcoming” he deals with the classic alien takeover theme in which a creature from another race is able to inhabit the body of a human, but brings to it his own unique gift for nail-biting suspense and solid scientific believability.
