“Forgotten Danger” is a thrilling short story by Joseph Samachson, first published in 1946. Set in post-World War II America, the story revolves around the dangerous consequences of a forgotten experiment that was conducted during the war.
The story follows Dr. Richard Murray, a scientist who had worked on the Manhattan Project, the top-secret government project that led to the development of the atomic bomb. Dr. Murray has been tasked with leading an investigation into the strange occurrences in a small town called Eastwood, where several people have been affected by a mysterious illness.
As Dr. Murray delves deeper into the investigation, he discovers that the illness is a result of an experiment that was conducted during the war. The experiment involved exposing a group of soldiers to a deadly gas in order to test its effects on human beings. The gas was supposed to be harmless, but something went wrong, and it has now contaminated the entire town.
The situation becomes even more dangerous when Dr. Murray realizes that the gas has mutated into a new, more lethal form. The people of Eastwood are slowly dying, and there seems to be no cure in sight.
Desperate to save the town and prevent the spread of the deadly gas, Dr. Murray teams up with a local doctor, Dr. Mary Evans, and together they work tirelessly to find a solution. But time is running out, and the government is determined to cover up the experiment and prevent any information from getting out.
As the situation reaches a critical point, Dr. Murray and Dr. Evans must race against time to find a way to stop the deadly gas from spreading and save the people of Eastwood. But with the government and the military closing in, their task becomes even more challenging.
