Original Manuscript]: Wainer
1952 - Fifteen-page typescript of a story submitted to the science-fiction magazine *Galaxy*, with a sixteenth page that consists of a story blurb by Shaara: "Certainly, life has a meaning / though sometimes it takes a lifetime to learn what it is." The first page bears Shaara's Highland Park, New Jersey address, and is dated in pencil, "9/23/52." The text, about 4300 words, has been edited in an unknown hand. The story appeared in the April 1954 issue, and was by our count his fourth appearance in *Galaxy*. The pages have been lightly folded in quarters and bear a small puncture in the upper right quadrant, partially affecting about a dozen letters throughout. Other light wear, but overall near fine. Shaara's first book, the boxing drama *The Broken Place*, was not published until 1968, followed in 1974 by his Pulitzer Prize-winning *The Killer Angels*. His science-fiction stories were not collected until 1982. We have seen very few examples of manuscript material by him appear on the market.
