Howard Fast is maybe lesser known for his small science fiction output than for his other novels and non-fiction publications.

He had also joined the communist party in the USA at the end of WWII, putting him in a rather uncomfortable sitiation in the years to come.

His novel "Spartacus" was what Stanley Kubrick based his film on.
