Space Family Robinson:
The True Story
Ed Shifres
Windsor House Publishing Group, 1997
365 pages. Hardcover.

"Edward Shifres's book is a painstakingly documented examination of one of the most egregious instances of plagiarism in the history of American entertainment. Line by line, plot point by plot point, Mr. Shifres demonstrates that the television program, LOST IN SPACE, was really SPACE FAMILY ROBINSON, created by Ib Melchior, and that Irwin Allen, who grabbed the credit and millions of dollars, was just another Hollywood hustler who knew how to make the system work for him. This is a true crime story in which the bad guy got away with it - until now."

-- Roderick Thorp Author of "Die Hard"
