“Deathrace 2000,” Ib J. Melchoir, 1952 – (short) (Alternate title: “The Racer”) A Racer attempts to win the prize for killing the most pedestrians (Tragi-Accs). The race is brutal, relentless. He takes No Sleeps to stay awake. To complicate matters, his mechanic partner suspects him of being Anti-Racer and plans to turn him in.
Comments: This story becomes more interesting when the word “soldier” is substituted for Racer. Read in Ackermanthology. Made into the 1975 cult classic “Deathrace 2000.”
