Death of a Spaceman

Project Gutenberg has added another Golden Age sf story. At this point Amazing Stories was under the editorship of Howard Browne who was notorious for his hatred of science fiction. Nevertheless some good stories were published during his tenure.

Death of a Spaceman by Walter M. Miller, Jr. (Amazing Stories, March 1954)

"The manner in which a man has lived is often the key to the way he will die. Take old man Donegal, for example. Most of his adult life was spent in digging a hole through space to learn what was on the other side. Would he go out the same way?"
