An enigma maybe, a lost talent certainly, BT Stanwitz has got people talking once again, with his writings looking set for something of a resurgence. Check out Vertical already published here, and a newly found second story – from a proposed trilogy of ‘furturistic moral tales’ coming soon!
Vertical – B.T. Stanwitz
Whilst we are in the mood for a little retro science fiction, here’s a recently re-discovered short piece from BT Stanwitz. Originally published in the US Sci-Fi journal The Mars Periodical in 1983.
“You may not be familiar with the name, but you will know some of BT Stanwitz’s stories from his many movie and television adaptations. Stanwitz was a formative exponent of the sci-fi genre, writing pieces for some of the most eminent science fiction publications of the forties, fifties and sixties. This is a little-known story, only recently re-discovered, written just two years before his death in an experimental rocket-fuel mishap at his home in Connecticut* (*Wikipedia citation).”
