Billy Pilgrim has become unstuck in time. An otherwise typical soldier in WWII, without warning, he jumps back and forth in his life with no control over where he is going next. Sometimes he is an ophthalmologist at home in suburbia; deep in World War II Europe, surviving the Allied bombing of Dresden; on the planet Tralfamadore, being held captive by aliens in an intergalactic zoo--accompanied by a porn star. In the end, he learns that the many tragic and sometimes funny ironies of life--the randomness of tragedy, the cruelty and senselessness of war, and man's complete lack of control over his fate--remain constant

Have gun, will travel by John Dehner( )

35 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Have gun, will travel" debuted on television on September 14, 1957 and moved to radio November 23, 1958. The program was an oddity, a western that began on television and moved to radio, featuring an ethical anti-hero whose mysterious origins were left untold until the fifth and final TV season. John Dehner, a versatile character actor who had earlier worked as a Disney animator on Fantasia and Bambi, portrayed the role originated on television by Richard Boone. This final radio program brought the saga of Paladin to a close, even though the gunslinger's adventures would continue for another two seasons on television. "It was an unusual finish to an unusual series," observed radio historian John Dunning, "the cowboy riding east into the sunrise."
