Jack Williamson

Jack Williamson (born 1908) was one of the earliest American pulp magazine science fiction authors, having first sold a story in 1928. In search of better pastures when Williamson was young, his family migrated from bordering states to rural New Mexico in a covered wagon. The farming was unsuccessful and the family continued a poverty stricken existence.

As a young man, Williamson discovered the magazine Amazing Stories and strove to write his own fiction, selling his first story at 20. Thereafter, he was a regular contributor to the pulp magazines, though not reaching financial success until many years later. He has published many collaborations with the SF author Frederick Pohl.
