Science Fiction Books/Collection and Author?


I've been scrounging the internet to find the author of "Ice Nine". As I recall, I first read it in a periodical collection of short stories a looong time ago, (60's or early 70's?). I know at least a reference to the story line is in Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle", but I really think I remember it as a single short story first. Any help? Has this been wiped from the internet? Why?

All I could find re mention of Ice Nine was here:-

William G Contento's Index to Science Fiction

is the most comprehensive site online for searching for SF book/short-story titles appearing pre-1983, and I couldn't find any "Ice 9" reference there.

HTH, Geoff.

I have read most of the short stories and books produced by the Top 80-100 authors in the SF field, as well as more obscure authors such as Robert Sheckley, and can answer any queries regarding author, title or theme of a science fiction short story(or novel). I can also answer questions on the history and influence of Science Fiction past to present, as well as on specific SF genres such as Cyberpunk,Golden Age SF, H G Wells-style scientific romances etc. I do not answer questions about books/stories set in the Fantasy genre.


Am currently doing a writing course for writing Science Fiction Books, with the Writer's Bureau in the UK.<

Am considering becoming an amateur writer of Science Fiction. Other than that, no academic credentials, I simply have read a multitude of SF books and stories, with an emphasis on stories from H G Wells to the 1980s.
