An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.
Full colour three dimensional television is a target at which engineers will soon be aiming. The technical obstacles are bound to be numerous, and it is also possible that other difficulties of an entirely different nature will arise - as Herrick soon finds out. Herrick had already achieved success on a limited scale, but his work led to curious results when the newly-developed receiver started picking up what appeared to be transmissions from an alien world...
Denis Talbot Hughes (1917 - 2008) was born in London and was the son of Victorian artist Talbot Hughes. He trained as an Air Observation Pilot in WW2 but a serious crash prematurely ended his flying career. His first book, Fury Drives By Night was published in 1948; over 80 more titles followed, published under numerous contractual pseudonyms. In addition to science fiction, he also published westerns and adventure novels. This prolific period ended when his main publisher collapsed in 1954.
From 1954, until his retirement in the 1980s, he wrote short stories for DC Thomson, specialising in WW2 adventures for boys' papers including Victor, Hotspur, Warlord and Wizard.
