Overview

H. L. Gold is best known for his tenure as editor of Galaxy Science Fiction one of the most influential science fiction magazines of the 1950's. During that period he was as responsible for shaping the genre as John W. Campbell had been a decade earlier. However, he also was a talented writer, writing dozens of stories beginning in the 30's and continuing on into the 60's. Shunning the super science themes prevalent when he began writing, his characters were more likely to be out of work actors, Jersey shore concessionaires, or race track touts than scientists or space pilots, even if they did deal with alien abductions and time travel. His own writing was as imbued with humor and satire as those authors he cultivated at Galaxy. Resurrected Press is proud to bring you this collection of some of his best works in . . . H. L. Gold Resurrected!
