Wonder’s Child

By Jack Williamson

ISBN: 9781932100570

Publication Date: September 2005


Currently Out of Stock



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.” It is impossible to separate Jack Williamson from science fiction; Wonder’s Child serves as a biography of both.

First published in 1984, this new version has been updated with twenty years of new material, plus a portion of Williamson’s diary from World War II.
