Martin Caidin ( September 14th, 1927 - March 24th, 1997 ) was born in New York City ( New York, United States ). At the age of 15, he lived on his own in New York, where he met the astronomer Carl Sagan ( 1934 - 1996 ). 


Martin Caidin began writing fiction in 1957. His best - known novel is Cyborg, which was the basis for The Six Million Dollar Man franchise.

During 1961, Martin Caidin was one of the pilots of a formation flight of Boeing B - 17 Flying Fortresses across the Atlantic Ocean, likely the last such flight, from the United States to England via Canada, the Azores and Portugal. He recounted this journey in his book Everything But The Flak

Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by its first unabridged dictionary. In 1965, the Radio Corporation of America ( R.C.A. Corporation ) bought Random House as part of a diversification strategy.
