Primed for promotion to the World-Journal city editor, grizzled senior reporter Pop is stunned when it's announced that young Leonard Caulborn, the publisher's son-in-law, will get the post. Worse, the lad wants him out. In protest, Pop demands to be given a beat again and gets his wish...only now he's got just two days to find the real story about a dead-end assignment - a month-old physics lecture - or be fired.

When Pop starts searching for the story's source, a professor named Pertwee, he lands in the middle of the story of the century after the Empire State Building, Grant's Tomb, and Grand Central Station all disappear. Apparently, Pertwee's the mastermind behind it all. But Pop soon discovers that, instead of inventing a new way to blow things up, the professor may be doing quite the opposite.

    " Don't come in to an L. Ron Hubbard book expecting deep, modern literature. Think Snakes on a Plane. It is what it is, and it's not trying to be anything less genuine (I'm looking at you, Water for Elephants). If you enjoy fun, old-fashioned storytelling, this is an excellent summer read for you. "

    " Silly but mildly enjoyable pulp short story employing the old Alice in Wonderland "drink me" plot device to grow and shrink people. "

    " I wanted to read some L. Ron Hubbard from his days as a pulp writer so I could get some insight into the weird bastard who started Scientology. Well, based on this toe in the water I can say he sure aint much of a writer. "

    " This is a definite reminder of the Science Fiction I grew up with and loved. I could never get enough of these stories, either in radio theater, book, magazine or movie form. This one brought back a lot of memories. "

    " My second L. Ron Hubbard book...or should I say, short story. I rathered The Dangerous Dimension, but this one was still good. His writing style is superb. Even though the general plot may seem kinda lame, it's written so well and with such humor that you're interested anyway. "

    " I though this was a long book, but iwas just a really short story that did not impress me at all... "

About the Author
Author L. Ron Hubbard

L. Ron Hubbard (1911–1986), with nineteen New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, was among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of the twentieth century. As a leading light of American pulp fiction through the 1930s and 1940s, he was further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to him.
