Wonder's Child: My Life in Science Fiction Book Summary/Review:

Science fiction legend Jack Williamson's classic autobiography is much more than the story of a single man's life and work; it is an amazing look at the entire 20th century from the perspective of a man on a "long search for endurable compromise with society." Born in 1908, Williamson often felt at odds with the world around him and began writing science fiction as a method of escape. His tentative entrance into the field - his first story was published in 1928 in Hugo Gernsbach's legendary Amazing Stories - soon transformed him from a pulp writer into one of the Grand Masters of science fiction.
