Martin Caidin was a renowned American writer of science fiction, military fiction, mystery, thriller, historical fiction, and fantasy novels. He is known to have authored over 80 books of fiction and non-fiction and more than one thousand magazine articles. Caidin began his writing career in 1957 and is particularly well known for writing the book called Cyborg. This novel was used as the basis of the popular franchise known as The Six Million Dollar Man. Caidin has also written numerous works based on military history, specifically related to aviation. He has also served as an American airplane pilot and played an important role in the buying and restoring of a Junkers Ku 52 aircraft. Author Caidin was considered a prolific writer of his time, but his works were surrounded by controversies. His stories mainly centered around the astronauts and pilots’ adventures. Many of his novels were notable for their realistic and reasonable predictions of the futuristic technology.

Caidin had a wide variety in his work. His range of work includes speculative fiction, science fiction, and a book based on Indiana Jones’ character. One of his books, Marooned, was adapted into an acclaimed movie and is considered a forewarning to the Apollo 13 incident. Author Caidin was born on September 14, 1927, in New York City, New York. His death occurred on March 24, 1997, in Tallahassee, Florida. The fiction works of Caidin incorporated the technological advancements of the future. They examined the social and political repercussions of such innovations. Many reviewers have compared his work with the likes of Michael Crichton. A recurring theme in Caidin’s stories is cyborgs, which are a combination of machine and man and are prepared with the help of bionics. He referenced bionics in his 1968 book The God Machine and in the widely popular 1972 novel Cyborg. The latter was vaguely adapted into a 1973 TV movie that further led to the development of a franchise of the same name.

Following the immense success of Cyborg, Caidin wrote several more sequels. These books consist of a different continuity from the TV series. The novelizations of a few TV episodes were penned by other writers. Author Caidin has been named in the credits of the episodes of the spin-off series, but in its 2007 remake. A few years later, Caidin referenced bionics as a satire in his future novels. In 1964, Caidin came up with the story of an astronaut stranded in space in his book titled Marooned. This book also follows the attempts of NASA in rescuing the astronaut and is based on a real project called Project Mercury. In 1969, the book was adapted into a Hollywood movie having the same title that starred Richard Crenna, Gregory Peck, James Franciscus, David Janssen, Gene Hackman, etc., in the lead roles. Author Caidin also made a small appearance in the movie in the role of a reporter. As the movie was mainly focussed on Project Apollo, Caidin decided to revise his book in 1969 tom showcase the change and labeled it as film novelization.

The later novels penned by Caidin include World War II books Samurai, Thunderbolt, Rugged Warriors, Black Thursday, etc. Also, he wrote books about space travels, such as Four Came Back and No Man’s World. Caidin’s other novels with film tie-in include Final Countdown and books featuring Indiana Jones. His novel, Exit Earth, is a story of Noah’s Ark in space. It was among his favorite books and believed that it could be adapted into a nice motion picture. Before becoming a full-time writer, Caidin was involved in aeronautics. He was mainly involved in restoring old airplanes. He wrote the manual for Messerschmitt Bf 108, which was approved by the FAA and has been awarded the Aviation/SWA award on two occasions.

Caidin had even founded a company for promoting aeronautics among young people. After writing his 1975 novel about Bermuda Triangle called Three Corners To Nowhere, Caidin claimed that he possessed psychic abilities that allowed him to move in small devices known as energy wheels. His claims were challenged by many parapsychologists and magicians, but he never came forward to prove his claims. The other fields in which Caidin was involved include being the host of a talk show called Face to Face and teaching progressive journalism at Florida University. Caidin was married to Dee Dee Caidin.

A popular series penned by author Martin Caidin is known as the Six Million Dollar Man series. It is comprised of a total of 10 books released between 1970 and 1977. This series revolves around the life of a man named Steve Austin, who is depicted as an agent of the Office of Special Operations, OSO. The debut book of this series is entitled ‘Cyborg’. It was first released in 1970 and re-released in 1972 by the Warner Paperback publication. The book opens by describing that Steven Austin returns from space in the form of a wonderful scientific perfection. When his spacecraft was destroyed and he was left stranded and injured, the American government, NASA, and the Pentagon came together to set up a rescue mission and bring Steve Austin back. They even succeeded in putting back his shattered body together. Now, he has turned into a cyborg, a man-machine combination, and appears much better than he was. After turning Steve Austin into an unstoppable, deadly weapon, the scientists worry about infusing human emotions in him. All of it cost $6 million to the government, but they were happy that they got their man back.

Another excellent volume of the series is called ‘High Crystal’. It was published in 1974. Initially, the story shows that there is a secret highway high in the mountains of Andes. It is located over 2 miles above the level of the sea and is made of smooth rocks. After the revelation of the highway’s existence at such a height, many questions are raised. And to find the answers to all those questions, Steve Austin is ordered to lead a mission. He is asked to visit the hostile land and use extraordinary abilities as a cyborg to reach the mountain top. Steve Austin’s bionic technology makes him the only man who could hack his path through the vast fields filled with razor-sharp grass and arrive at the point where the source of secret energy is kept hidden.
