Garrett, Randall: A Spaceship Named McGuire v1 11.nov.2009
Randall Garrett (December 16, 1927 - December 31, 1987) was an American science fiction and fantasy author. He was a prolific contributor to Astounding and other science fiction magazines of the 1950s and 1960s. He instructed Robert Silverberg in the techniques of selling large quantities of action-adventure science fiction, and collaborated with him on two novels about Earth bringing civilization to an alien planet.
This story was first published in 1961.
Due to some advanced layout options, this book will only be available in ePub and PDF. This has already been posted in LRF (without the illustrations)
PS: The ePub file is a bit u usual in that I have adjusted the font sizes so that it may be readable in the smallest font size (set to 14 pts). This works really fine for me and my Reader. Please let me know what you think of this. This has the further advantage of rendering the boy text quite big while the page numbers on the side are really quite small, thus furthering the reading comfort (at least for me)

When Silverberg agreed, he seated himself at the typewriter, poured himself a stiff drink, and started to write. After writing about 10,000 words, he tapped Silverberg on the shoulder to take over, and went to the couch to nap.
Silverberg wrote about 10,000 words, the woke Garrett to take over. Randy got up and sat down, reviewed what had been done thus far, and said "That's pretty good! Who wrote that first part?"
Randy was prolific enough back then that like Silverberg, he used pseudonyms, once publishing a serialized novel in Astounding as "Darrell T. Langart" (_Anything you can do..._) to get around the fact he already had stories under his own name scheduled for those issues.
