A former national news editor and book and art reviewer for International News Service and special feature writer for the New York Daily Mirror and the Journal American, William J. Widder is the author of the earlier "Fiction of L. Ron Hubbard," the first comprehensive, annotated bibliography of the best-selling author's more than four hundred published and selected unpublished novels and stories, as well as screenplays, plays and poems. A pulp fiction reader and science fiction enthusiast since the 1930s, Mr. Widder holds a B.S., summa cum laude, and an M.A., faculties of political science, philosophy and pure science, from Columbia University, New York City. He heads a Los Angeles-based communications and media consulting firm and, with his wife Beverly, makes his home in Venice, California.From Publishers Weekly:
Hubbard authority Widder (The Fiction of L. Ron Hubbard) pays loving tribute to the pulp master (and founder of Scientology) in a wonderfully designed book with full-color illustrations on nearly every page, many depicting pulp magazine covers and related interior drawings. Surveying the entire range of Hubbard's remarkable writing career, it features a lavish array of artwork from the western, adventure, action, SF and fantasy magazines of the pulp era as well as from later novels, including that mind-blowing colossus, Battlefield Earth. Starting in 1934, Hubbard (1911-1986) published hundreds of stories that would appear in such classic pulp magazines as Astounding and Unknown. Over the decades he was fortunate to have such sterling illustrators as Edd Cartier (his most intuitive collaborator), Hubert Rogers, Hannes Bok, Frank Frazetta and Gerry Grace. A chapter devoted to Hubbard's Writers and Illustrators of the Future programs, a biographical chronology and a bibliography round out this beautiful volume, a testament to a half-century of popular literary endeavor.
