“The Strange Flight of Richard Clayton,” Robert Bloch, 1939

“The Strange Flight of Richard Clayton,” Robert Bloch, 1939 – A rocket scientist pilots a spaceship called The Future on a twenty-year mission to Mars.  There’s one problem, however–the annoying sound made by the broken control panel.  He eventually loses his “time-sense,” with unexpected results.

Comments: Read in Great Science Fiction Stories of 1939.

Author: Wikipedia: “Robert Albert Bloch (April 5, 1917 – September 23, 1994) was a prolific American writer, primarily of crime, horror and science fiction.  He is best known as the writer of Psycho, the basis for the film of the same name by Alfred Hitchcock.” Bloch was a member of “The Lovecraft Circle,” a group of writers who corresponded with H.
