Post Re: Year of the Jackpot
Could it really have happened by accident? I never considered it before. Silverberg was a very experienced anthologist by 1974 and presumably knew how not to mishandle his source materials. Nor do I think it likely that the typesetter goofed and that Silverberg didn't catch the omission when checking galley proofs; surely he would have noticed the absence of "The End" (which I presume would have been set off typographically, as in the 1962 Signet paperback The Menace from Earth, which I have with the early-1970s cover art).

Ideally someone would simply ask him whether it was deliberate - someone who wouldn't have qualms about raising an embarrassing incident from 35 years ago... not me, that is.

Um, I trust you're aware that Andrew Wheeler lost his SFBC job (as did the only other editor there, Ellen Asher) back in May 2007? (see this link: http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/2007/0 ... -book-club)

What the hell would SFBC need editors for, anyway? :mrgreen:

Harking back to Peter Scott's original question, I think that the story's ending (as written) is not an expression of pessimism -- rather it is Heinlein's storytelling integrity which requires that he express his engineering integrity pushing to its logical climax. So to tell the true story of all those statistical peaks and troughs reaching their extreme limits, even the social chaos has to be overwhelmed by the physics of the primary influence on our astronomical neighborhood.
