"That car," Roger started weakly. "You've got to stop that car I was chasing--"

"Never mind that car," the patrolman snarled. "It's you they want. Hop out. We'll go in the patrol car."

"You've got to stop them--"

The patrolman fingered his gun. "Security wants to talk to you, Mr. Strang. Hop out."

Roger moved dazedly from his car. He didn't question the patrolman; he hardly even heard him.

Henry L. Ratliff

(1953) Sci-fi (Time Travel Paradox) / Political Intrigue

From 'Space Science Fiction' July 1953.

  • Roger is involved with an electronic barrier that must be completed to avoid another atomic war.

  • Someone is trying to kill Roger's son.

  • Multiple attempts are made, but with no evidence of the attacks, other than Roger's word.

Sardo Weems

An interesting whodunnit about assassins targetting a young boy after the first atomic war that turns into something else. There are some interesting ideas about time travel.

A better than average pulp story.
