Seventy-Five

(2004)
The Diamond Anniversary of a Science Fiction Pioneer Jack Williamson
A collection of stories by

 
A literary and visual feast, this 8.5" x 11" 603 page hardcover celebrates the first seventy-five years of Jack Williamson's career in Science Fiction. From "The Metal Man" in 1928 to his recent Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novella "The Ultimate Earth," inside are some of the best of Williamson's stories, including excerpts of such classic novels as The Legion of Space, Golden Blood and The Legion of Time.

Also included are several never-before-published gems such as a vintage 1930s tale "The Crystal Castle," a collaboration with long-time friend Edmond Hamilton, and a story originally commissioned for Last Dangerous Visions, "Previews of Hell."

Sidebars with essays, correspondence, and articles are decorated with over 300 book and magazine covers and interior illustrations. A full-color 32-page section features an illustrated timeline of the author's career, and reprints a complete story arc from Jack Williamson and Lee Elias' 1950s Sunday comic strip, Beyond Mars. Seventy-Five: The Diamond Anniversary of a Science Fiction Pioneer also features a foreword by award-winning author Connie Willis and an introduction by a fellow pioneer, Sir Arthur C. Clarke.
