About this title


The ambitious program to collect the short fiction of Grand Master Jack Williamson concludes!
As with previous volumes in this series, the full-color endpapers reproduce the original magazine covers (with artwork by modern masters including John Berkey, Virgil Finlay, Bob Eggleton and Vincent Di Fate) of the stories herein, and the binding is designed to match the 1940s editions of Williamson's works published by Fantasy Press. The book is smythe-sewn, bound in full cloth, and printed on acid-neutral paper, with full-color endpapers reproducing the original pulp magazine cover art. With a foreword by award-winning author and long-time friend of Williamson, Connie Willis, At the Human Limit represents the changing state of mid-20th Century American Science Fiction and concludes the documentation of Williamson's unparalleled career.

About the Author:

Born in 1908 on a hard-scrabble dirt ranch, Jack Williamson is one of the true pioneers of science fiction. Since his first publication in Amazing Stories in 1928 he has written some of science fiction s acknowledged classics including The Humanoids, The Legion of Space, and Darker Than You Think. He has been credited with developing modern concepts of artificial intelligence, anti-matter, and genetic engineering. With time away from writing as an Army weather forecaster in World War II, and earning a Ph.D. in English literature at the age of fifty, he taught one of the first SF courses in a university curriculum. In 1976 he was named a Grandmaster by the Science Fiction Writers of America. His fifty-fourth novel, The Stonehenge Gate, was published in 2005. He passed away at age 98 on November 10, 2006.
