Issued by Pyramid #X-1679, 1967. Strangely, even though "Lost in Space" was the best & most popular of Irwin Allen's
TV series, it only inspired one paperback from a major publisher. The book was written by Dave VanArnam & Ron Archer,
& has little relationship with the TV show. The photo choice on the cover is "dreadful", and even the LIS logo was
wrong. The book remained highly unpopular & unlike the "Land of the Giants" novels, received only one printing. The
novel sold for .60 cents.
Special thanks to Charles Finn of Oceanside, California
