Meet the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was a prolific American author best known for his characters Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, although he wrote in a number of genres including westerns and non-fiction. He completed more than seventy books during his career.

John Wood Campbell (1910-1971) was an early writer of science fiction pulp who later turned to editing, largely abandoning fiction by the time he was 28. As editor of Astounding Science Fiction from late 1937 until his death in 1971, Campbell is generally credited with shaping the so-called Golden Age of Science Fiction. Isaac Asimov called Campbell "the most powerful force in science fiction ever, and for the first ten years of his editorship he dominated the field completely."

Raymond King Cummings (1887-1957) is considered one of the "fathers" of modern science fiction; he published some 750 novels and short stories before and after World War II, many in the popular pulp science fiction magazines of the day. Cummings worked with Thomas Edison as a personal assistant and technical writer from 1914 to 1919.

Andre Alice Norton (1912-2005) published her first novel in 1934, and was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master Award from the World Science Fiction Society in 1977. She won the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the SFWA in 1983.

Edward Elmer "Doc" Smith (1890-1965), was an early pioneer of the science fiction genre. Doc Smith is considered to be the "father" of Space Opera and one of the first science fiction writers to popularize the notion of faster-than-light interstellar travel.

Donald Allen Wollheim (1914-1990) was an American science fiction writer, editor, and publisher. A founding member of the Futurians, he was one of the leading influences on the development of science fiction and science fiction fandom in the 20th century United States.
