Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Sucker Bait
by Isaac Asimov

This novella was written as a triplet publication conceived by editor Fletcher Pratt. A world would be created by a scientist, then Asimov, Poul Anderson and James Blish would each create a story. He and Anderson did the work, but Blish never did. Asimov retained the rights and published it separately.

The scenario created was that of a binary star system in the globular cluster, Messier 13, with an Earthlike planet called Troas (or more informally, "Junior") located at one of the system's Lagrangian points. An earlier expedition to Troas for colonization had suffered some mysterious disaster.
