About the Author
Walter Michael Miller Jr. (1923 - 1996) was an American science fiction writer. He is known primarily for A Canticle for Leibowitz (1959), the only novel he published in his lifetime. Prior to its publication he was a prolific writer of short stories. Between 1951 and 1957, Miller published over three dozen science fiction short stories, winning a Hugo Award in 1955 for the story "The Darfsteller." He also wrote scripts for the television show Captain Video in 1953. Late in the 1950s, Miller assembled a novel from three closely related novellas he had published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1955, 1956 and 1957. The novel, entitled A Canticle for Leibowitz, was published in 1959. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A light but dated readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 April 2017
Very dated now in the light of modern knowledge and expectation of what an astronaut's life is/would be like but reasonably entertaining.

Quick Read; Not Much of a StoryReviewed in the United States on 16 February 2016
The Hoofer by Walter M. Miller is a very quick read but not much of a story. Drunken spaceman, returning to his rural home after 9 months in space, wonders why he as a spaceman had tied himself down with a wife and son, only to become perversely but appropriately bound to the earth. Don't expect something comparable to Miller's masterpiece, A Canticle for Liebowitz.
