Pioneers of wonder: conversations with the founders of science fiction
David Lasser, Stanley G. Weinbaum, Hugo Gernsback, and Sam Moskowitz are the founders of science fiction, the amazing genre that enjoys such wide appeal today. Through exclusive interviews with these intriguing personalities, Eric Leif Davin takes readers back to the late 1920s when Gernsback, "the father of science fiction, " founded the world's second science fiction magazine, Science Wonder Stories. Lasser recalls his time at the magazine and his own amazing story The Conquest of Space the first book to seriously probe the possibility of space flight. Other highlights include a discussion with Weinbaum (A Martian Odyssey), the first author to treat an alien sympathetically, and talks with the giants of the early science fiction genre, Frank K. Kelly and Raymond Z. Gallun.
