A propos du livre :
Drawn from such classic pulp magazines as Amazing Stories, Science Wonder Stories, and Astounding Stories, this volume features nine tales including two novel-length adventures, The Green Girl and The Birth of a New Republic. Also included are Williamson's earliest letters and contest entries to the editors of the SF magainzes of the late 20's and early 30's.
The book is smythe-sewn, bound in full cloth, and printed on acid-neutral paper, with full-color endpapers reproducing the original pulp magazine cover art.
With a foreword by 1998 Science Fiction Grand Master Hal Clement, The Metal Man and Others documents the beginning of Williamson's unparalleled career and acts as a mirror to the development of American Science Fiction
A propos de l'auteur: Jack Williamson has been in the forefront of science fiction since his first published story in 1928. Now in his eighth decade as a published author, Williamson is the acclaimed author of such trailblazing classics as The Humanoids and The Legion of Time. The Oxford English Dictionary credits Williamson with inventing the terms "genetic engineering" (in Dragon's Island) and "terraforming" (in Seetee Ship). His seminal novel Darker Than You Think was a landmark speculation on the nature of shape-changing.
Williamson has also been active academically. He has taught since the 1950's and is professor emeritus at Eastern New Mexico University. He lives and works in Portales, New Mexico.
