Biographical / Historical

Begun in 1956, Satellite Science Fiction was named with the rise of the space age. One of its selling points was the center novels that were published across series. The first was "The Man from Earth" by Algis Budrys, a story about a space criminal remoulded into a new body and sent to Pluto to fight against aliens. The series ran bimonthly for three years, ending in 1959.
