The story was based on a drawing by Roy Ritterhouse, and the poor man dreaming of the future concept came from a suggestion made by Albert Macklin.

After the change suggested by Macklin was made, the story was printed in the September 1953 issue of Incredible Tales magazine but the issue was pulped before it hit the newsstands. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")
