The Sky Is Falling

Scritto da: Lester del Rey Letto da: Karen Savage Audio e E-book

After dying in a terrible accident at a building site, Dave Hanson finds himself being brought back to life in a world where magic is real, and where the sky is breaking apart and falling. And he is expected to put it back together again. Will he be able to save this strange world, and his own new life?

Computer engineer Dave Hansen is transported from Earth to a world reminiscent of Ancient Egypt, where the rules of science and physics are replaced by the rules of magic. Hanson was summoned to help save the world's sky from collapsing. The sky is a literal dome that arches above the world, with the sun and stars not massive celestial bodies trillions of miles away, but smaller lights that move about within the dome of the sky.

Hansen must find a way to reconcile his scientific knowledge with the magic of his new world and thus prevent the sky from falling, and then discover a method to return to Earth.

The first and shortest version was published in Beyond Fantasy Fiction in July 1954 under the title No More Stars with the pseudonym Charles Satterfield. It first appeared in book form in 1963 with Badge of Infamy as Two Complete Novels in a Galaxy paperback original. The first book-length version was published in 1973 by Ace Books.
