Read full description of the books Think Yourself to Death:
Doesn't stand the test of time, not because it is old (1957) but because modern writing has just progressed and this is a product of the time. Light, fast story. Short. Little plot and paper-thin characters. Does have an interesting concept for a story. Not something that would get published today but I could see a wannabe writer ebooking it and putting it on Amazon, and then not finding any buyers. Only worth reading if you are making a study or love affair of 1950's SF. Maybe Hollywood could steal the concept, flesh it out, and turn it into a decent movie for SF fans.
Read information about the authorAka Milton S. Lesser, Adam Chase, Andrew Frazer, Jason Ridgway, C.H. Thames.
Stephen Marlowe (1928–2008) was the author of more than fifty novels, including nearly two dozen featuring globe-trotting private eye Chester Drum. Born Milton Lesser, Marlowe was raised in Brooklyn and attended the College of William and Mary. After several years writing science fiction under his given name, he legally adopted his pen name, and began focusing on Chester Drum, the Washington-based detective who first appeared in The Second Longest Night (1955).
Although a private detective akin to Raymond Chandler’s characters, Drum was distinguished by his jet-setting lifestyle, which carried him to various exotic locales from Mecca to South America. These espionage-tinged stories won Marlowe acclaim, and he produced more than one a year before ending the series in 1968. After spending the 1970s writing suspense novels like The Summit (1970) and The Cawthorn Journals (1975), Marlowe turned to scholarly historical fiction. He lived much of his life abroad, in Switzerland, Spain, and France, and died in Virginia in 2008.
Marlowe received the Shamus Award, "The Eye" (Lifetime achievment award) in 1997.
