Hamilton`s first story, "The Monster-God of Mamurth," was published in the August, 1926 issue of Weird Tales: the beginning of a 22 year relationship that would see no less than 78 Hamilton stories appear in the magazine. Although the majority of these stories were science fiction, editor Farnsworth Wright included them under the heading of "weird scientific" stories, apparently in an attempt to combine the theme of the magazine with Hamilton`s popularity.

Edmond Moore Hamilton (English Edmond Moore Hamilton; October 21, 1904 - February 1, 1977) - American science fiction writer popular in the middle of the XX century. He is considered one of the founders of the space opera direction in the science fiction genre. Biography Edmond Moore Hamilton was born on October 21, 1904 in the United States in Youngstown (Ohio) and became the third child in the family. His father worked for a local newspaper as a cartoonist, his mother taught at school before marriage. After the birth of his son, Edmond`s father left his job at the newspaper and acquired a small farm in the village of Poland (Ohio). In 1911 he got a job in Newcastle, where the whole family moved. After leaving school, Edmond Hamilton entered the prestigious Westminister College in East Wilmington, which he graduated early at the age of 14. In science fiction, his debut began with the story "God the Monster of Mamurta," which appeared in the 1926 August issue of Weird Tales magazine. In that number on the rating, Hamilton was second only to his idol Abraham Merritt, pushing the then-popular horror writer Howard Lovecraft to third place. Hamilton quickly became one of the main members of the Weird Tales group of writers, assembled by the magazine`s editor-in-chief, Farnsworth Wright. The same group also included such famous writers as Howard Lovecraft and Robert Howard. From 1926 to 1948, 79 of Hamilton`s works were published in Weird Tales, making him one of the most prolific writers (only Seaburi Quinn and August Derleth published more than him). Between the late 1920s and early 1930s, Hamilton was published in all American pulp science fiction journals. Hamilton`s short story The Island of Unreason (Wonder Stories, May 1933) was awarded the Jules Verne Prize for Sci-fi short story of the year (it was the first Science Fiction Award given by a reader`s vote; prototype of the Hugo Prize, established by in 1953). During this time period, Hamilton was revered and considered a veteran among the writers of Weird Tales. In the late 1930s, several of Hamilton`s outstanding science fiction stories were printed in Weird Tales, of which He That Hath Wings (1938) stood out the most, the most popular and most reprinted. Hamilton then plunged into the creation of a series of stories, the protagonist of which was the superhero Kurt Newton. In the 1940s and 1950s, Hamilton alone wrote hundreds of stories in this series, which were originally published in magazines and were later published as 13 "novels." The idea of ​​creating the series was suggested to Hamilton by editor Mort Weisenger. Both previously took part in the creation of the legendary hero - Superman. In the postwar years, Hamilton`s popularity declined. He managed to publish several successful novels: Death Star (1966), the Star Wolf trilogy (Star Wolf I: Weapons from the Outside) (1967), Star Wolf II: Closed Worlds (1968), Star Wolf III: World star wolves "(1968)). In 1946, Edmond Hamilton married the writer Lee Douglas Brackett, who also wrote fiction. Three years after the wedding, the Hamilton couple moved to the eastern United States, to a farm in Kinsman, Ohio, which belonged to Hamilton`s distant relatives. On February 1, 1977, Edmond Hamilton died without waiting for the publication of his last collection, compiled by his wife, "The Best of Edmond Hamilton" (1977). An article by Sergei Sukhinov about the life and work of Edmond Hamilton can be read here http://lib.rus.ec/b/142267 Interesting facts * "Thieves of the Stars" (1927) and "In the Depths of the Nebula" (1929) are the first works in science fiction , in which the concept of the Galactic Federation was put forward. * In "The Cursed Galaxy" (1935) Hamilton for the first time in fiction formulates the hypothesis of an expanding universe. * Even before the beginning of human exploration of space, Hamilton in the story "Who is there - from the outside?" (1933) suggested that the study of the solar system would be ineffective due to its high cost. * One of the earliest examples of functional robots is described in the story "Metal Giants" (1926). * The collection of stories "Horror on an Asteroid" (1936) - one of the earliest books of modern American fiction, published in hardcover (hardcover). Bibliography John Gordon Novel Series * The Star Kings (1949) * Return to the Stars (1970) Interstellar Patrol * Outside the Universe) (1964) * Crashing Suns (1965) Captain Future * Calling Captain Future (1967) * Captain Future and the Space Emperor ( 1967) * Galaxy Mission (1967) * The Comet Kings (1968) * Danger Planet (1968) (alias Brett Sterling) * The Magician of Mars (1968) * Outlaw World (1968) * Planets in Peril (1968) * Quest Beyond the Stars (1968) * Captain Future`s Challege (1969) * Outlaws of the Moon (1969) * The Tenth Planet (1969) (alias Brett Sterling) Starwolf * The Weapon from Beyond (1967) * The Closed Worlds (1968) * The Starworld wolves "(World of the Starwolves) (1968) Novels * The Time Raider (1927) * The Star Stealers (1929) * Within the Nebula (1929) * The Comet Drivers (1930) * The Cosmic Cloud (1930) * The Sun People (1930) * Conquest of Two Worlds (1932) * The Horror On the Asteroid (1936) The Lake of Life (1937) Murder in the Clinic (1945) Tiger Girl (1945) The Monsters of Juntonheim (1950) Tharkol, Lord of the Unknown (1950) The City at World`s End (1951) The Star of Life (1959) The Sun Smasher (1959) ) The Haunted Stars (1960) Battle for the Stars (1961) The Valley of Creation (1964) Fugitive of the Stars (1965) Doom Star (1966) The Harpers of Titan (1967) A Yank At Valhalla (1973) Tales * God - the monster of Mamurta (1926) * In the bowels of the nebula (1929) * Cities in the air (1929) * Hotel outside our world * Children of the Sun * Child of the winds * The locked world (1929) * Exile * Comet threat (1928) * Who has wings ( 1938) * Who is there - outside? (1952) * Metal Giants (1926) * My Poor Iron Nerves * At the End of the World * Incredible World (1947) * Island of Recklessness (1933) * Outcast (1968) * Star Thieves (1927) * Damned Galaxy (1935) * Requiem ( 1962) * Seeds from space * One who had wings * A man who saw the future (1930) * Alien land * Evolved (1931) Star Kings * Star Kings * Return to the Stars (1970) * Star Hunters * Stark and Star Kings Battle fiction * Fugitive from the stars * Battle for the stars * Battle of the Empire * Riders of Time (1927) * City at the End of the World * Valley of Creation * Beyond the Universe (1929) * Star of Life * Star Hammer * Out of the Universe * High Reaches of Invisible People * Doom Star * Thunder Moon Treasure (1942) * Guardians of the Stars * Interstellar Prospectors Star Wolf * Star Wolf I: Weapons from the Outside (1967) * Star Wolf II: Closed Worlds (1968) * Star Wolf III: World of Star Wolves (1968)
