Wonder's Child: My Life in Science Fiction

Jack Williamson
Authors:
Jack Williamson

Science fiction legend Jack Williamson's classic autobiography is much more than the story of a single man's life and work; it is an amazing look at the entire 20th century from the perspective of a man on a "long search for endurable compromise with society."Born in 1908, Williamson often felt at odds with the world around him and began writing science fiction as a method of escape. His tentative entrance into the field - his first story was published in 1928 in Hugo Gernsbach's legendary Amazing Stories - soon transformed him from a pulp writer into one of the Grand Masters of science fiction.

In the second book in the Legion of Space series, Jay Kalam, Hal Samdu and Giles Habibula fight The Cometeers, an alien race of energy beings controlling a "comet" which is really a giant force field containing a swarm of planets populated by their slaves. The slave races are of flesh and blood, but none are remotely similar to humans. The Cometeers cannot be destroyed by AKKA, as they are incorporeal from the Universe's point of view and exist for the most part in an alternate reality. The ruling Cometeers feed on their slaves and literally absorb their souls, leaving disgusting, dying hulks in their wake. It is said that they do so, as they were once fleshly entities themselves of various species. Hence, the ruling Cometeers keep other intelligent beings as slaves and "cattle." They fear AKKA, though, as it can erase all their possessions.
