Murray Leinster was once a prolific and amazing author of technological know-how fiction. He was once born William Fitzgerald Jenkins on June sixteen, 1896 in Norfolk, Virginia and accomplished his formal schooling on the age of thirteen. With the lack of his father’s activity and next downturn within the family’s fortunes, Leinster wouldn't be capable to pursue the occupation in chemistry that he had longed for. yet he might pass directly to one other major fulfillment - publishing greater than 1,500 brief tales, novellas, and novels in his lifetime. in addition to technological know-how fiction, Leinster wrote love tales, homicide mysteries, event tales, westerns, fable, tv and picture scripts, and mainstream fiction. Leinster wrote variously through the years as Will F. Jenkins (mostly for mainstream magazines reminiscent of Colliers or The Saturday night Post), Murray Leinster (mostly for sci-fi), William F. Jenkins, William Fitzgerald, or even as Louisa Carter Lee for love novels and potboilers. Leinster used to be certainly a renaissance guy of phrases and concepts. yet he's remembered for his outstanding prescience and imaginative and prescient within the sci-fi style, particularly round thoughts in technological know-how and communications technologies.
