** James Blish's "Beep" (short story, science fiction)

Rather complicated story about a future viewing device, & how benign security agencies wield it for the good of the society. The only saving grace is readable language; I found the plot uninteresting, though it is revealed after a lot of suspense.

Collected in.

  1. David Hartwell & Kathryn Cramer (Ed)'s "The Ascent of Wonder: The Evolution of Hard SF".

Fact sheet.

First published: Galaxy, February 1954.
