The Emperor of America

The working title of an apparently unpublished novel about fans and fandom written by Bob Tucker. Tucker wrote it in the early-mid 60s and at the Midwestcon 16 described it as taking place at a 4-day Worldcon (unheard of at the time!).

It was rejected by Doubleday and by Terry Carr at Ace. (Carr's rejection letter noted that "it was impossible to conceive of a SF magazine with a circulation of over one million" (part of the novel's plot) — twelve years before Omni reach that circulation.
