Wonder's Child

(1984)
My Life in Science Fiction
A non fiction book by

 
 
School Library Journal
YA Williamson traces the development of science fiction in America through his experiences as a sci-fi author. He first began writing stories for the pulp magazines in the 1920s and today is the award-winning author of over 40 books. Each chapter of his autobiography begins with historical highlights emphasizing scientific developments. Williamson describes the general attitude in America of wonder and expectation towards technology and how it changed to cynicism and fear with the invention of the atomic bomb. Even so, his sense of wonder and love of learning have never left him, and they brighten this straightforward, highly informative chronicle. The author supplies copious historical detail, advice for would-be science fiction writers, generous yet unfawning descriptions of other writers and editors and numerous black-and-white photos of his friends and family.
