Meet the Author

Robert W. “Doc” Lowndes is not so well known these days as he should be. He wrote four novels and over three dozen short stories, some of the latter of which are featured in this collection. But his real contribution to the birth of modern science fiction was as an editor. He edited Future Science Fiction, Science Fiction, and Science Fiction Quarterly, as well as crime-fiction, western, sports-fiction, and other pulp and digest sized magazines for Columbia Publications. He also was a prolific author of essays on the nature of science fiction. These and his editorial work helped shape the genre of science fiction and insured its survival past its turbulent childhood to become hugely popular as it is today.
