My second book, An ASTOUNDING War, looks at the connections between Science Fiction and World War II. To begin, the effects of the war upon the pulp science fiction magazines of the late 1930s and early 1940s are explored. Then the focus is shifted to Astounding Science-Fiction, the leading magazine of that time. How was the content of Astounding, both fiction and non-fiction, influenced by the war? It was also possible to look in the other direction. What contributions were made to the war effort by those people associated with Astounding? What influence did science fiction have on military and naval technology?
