Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lloyd Arthur Eshbach (June 20, 1910-October 29, 2003) was an American science fiction fan and writer, secular and religious publisher, and minister. Born in Palm, Pennsylvania, Eshbach grew up in Reading. He discovered science fiction at age 15 and began writing letters to the professional magazines, then started to write his own stories. The third story he wrote sold to Science Wonder Stories in 1929. While still writing his own stories and articles, he published two short-lived magazines in the early 1930s, Marvel Tales and The Galleon. He founded Fantasy Press, a small press which published the work of authors such as E. E. Smith, Jack Williamson, Robert A. Heinlein and John W. Campbell, Jr.. Fantasy Press published 32 books between 1946 and 1950, in limited print runs averaging 3,750 copies each. These constituted the first hardcover editions of many of these works, previously available only in used copies of magazines.show more
