Lester Del Rey

Science fiction’s most argumentative writer. Mr del Rey is an authority on music, religion, biology, witchcraft, extra sensory perception, flying saucers and worse.

In fact, he would probably be unbearable if it were not for his sense of humor, wit and love of fallible humanity. This is what makes  him a good writer. In fact, very good indeed. Science fiction fans have long known this.

Mortals And Monsters provides a splendid opportunity for the rest of the world not to be left out…
