This book was released on 2000-01-01 with total page 300 pages. Book excerpt: This is the first of three volumes that chart the history of the science fiction magazine from the earliest days to the present. This first volume looks at the exuberant years of the pulp magazines. It traces the growth and development of the science fiction magazines from when Hugo Gernsback launched the very first, Amazing Stories, in 1926 through to the birth of the atomic age and the death of the pulps in the early 1950s. These were the days of the youth of science fiction, when it was brash, raw and exciting: the days of the first great space operas by Edward Elmer Smith and Edmond Hamilton, through the cosmic thought variants by Murray Leinster, Jack Williamson and others to the early 1940s when John W. Campbell at Astounding did his best to nurture the infant genre into adulthood. Under him such major names as Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, A. E. van Vogt and Theodore Sturgeon emerged who, along with other such new talents as Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke, helped create modern science fiction. For over forty years magazines were at the heart of science fiction and this book considers how the magazines, and their publishers, editors and authors influenced the growth and perception of this fascinating genre.

Campbell, Jr., was interrupted when Campbell’s first wife, Doña, left him in 1949 and married Smith. Smith continued regularly publishing science fiction novels and stories until 1960.

Book excerpt: If Henry Hasse (1913–1977) is remembered today, it is probably as the co-author of Ray Bradbury's first published story, “Pendulum,” which appeared in November 1941 in Super Science Stories. He published only one novel, The Stars Will Wait, from a minor publisher in 1968. From the late 1930s to the early 1950s, however, he was a frequent and popular author in the pulp science fiction magazines, publishing more than 50 adventure stories such as the ones presented here. One, “He Who Shrank,” was anthologized in the seminal science fiction anthology, Adventures in Time and Space, edited by Raymond J. Healy and J. Francis McComas. (If the title sounds familiar, you might also have read it in Isaac Asimov’s anthology, Before the Golden Age.) He published his last two stories—probably unsold tales from his pulpster years—in Whispers in the 1970s. Included are: THE BEGINNING THE STAR OF SATAN ALCATRAZ OF THE STARWAYS REVENGE OF THE VERA STAR OF PANADUR THIEF OF MARS CITY OF THE LIVING FLAME PROKTOLS OF NEPTUNE WE’RE FRIENDS, NOW OUT OF THIS WORLD WALLS OF ACID ONE PURPLE HOPE!
