Probert Publishing[1] was a book publishing company in 1985.

History[]

Probert published what would become George McFly's bestselling novel, A Match Made in Space, in the altered and improved present where Marty McFly returned after his trip to 1955 in Dr. Emmett Brown's DeLorean time machine.

The front cover of the hardback edition bore an illustration depicting a couple brought together by an alien resembling the one George saw in a "vision" that woke him from sleep when he was a teenager in 1955, while a black-and-white head-and-shoulders photograph of George was on the back cover.

When Probert published A Match Made in Space in paperback, the front cover retained the illustration from the hardback, while the back cover photograph of George was replaced by a synopsis, which read as follows:[2]

Theirs was a love that was cosmically ordained — or was it?

Raylene was from Chicago. She was young, beautiful... and her heart belonged to another.

Roger was from Kansas. He was young, ordinary... and an incident at age fourteen had caused him to shun the opposite sex.

Garth D'Vade was from Planet Culvan, where love was unknown. He was sent to Earth on a mission regarding the fate of the entire Universe — a mission involving Raylene and Roger.

But was his mission? And how could the lives of two young people have cosmic repercussions? Was Garth D'Vade, with his ability to create sonic frequencies powerful enough to melt a human brain, really a galactic matchmaker — or did he have a secret, insidious agenda?
