His classic science fiction novel "What Mad Universe" (first published in 1949) is a parody of pulp Science Fiction story conventions. The novel functions both as a critique of its genre and a superior example of it. It may have provided a model for Philip K. Dick when he later created his own stories set in alternate personal realities. Ayn Rand singled out Brown for high praise in her book "The Romantic Manifesto." The famous pulp writer Mickey Spillane called Brown "my favorite writer of all time".. The former owner's special Easton Press "Masterpieces of Science Fiction" bookplate is tipped-in on the fep, otherwise this is a pristine copy, unmarked, unread, tight, square, and clean. FINE. The Masterpieces of Science Fiction Series. B&W Plates. 4to 11" - 13" tall. 190 pp. As New with No dust jacket as issued .
