Science Fiction grandmaster - Jack WilliamsonJack Williamson (April 29, 1908 – November 10, 2006)

Science Fiction Grand Master Jack Williamson has passed away. Williamson had a long, long legacy in Science Fiction. His first story, The Metal Man, was published in Amazing Stories in 1928. Jack not only wrote iconic SF stories but he penned such horror classics as Darker Than You Think. His most recent book was The Stonehenge Gate. I’m currently listening to it and will post a review soon.

Few of Jack’s works have thus far been adapted to audio. But hopefully that will be rectified in the near future. Here’s a few:
