Jack Williamson (1907-2006) was one of the most important and influential figures in science fiction.  Born in 1907, he came to New Mexico with his family in a covered wagon in 1915. His first science fiction story appeared in a professional magazine in 1928, and he kept writing new novels and stories through 2005 when his last novel THE STONEHENGE GATE was published.  His updated autobiography WONDER'S CHILD is available. 

Jack Williamson coined many words that became staples in science fiction and in the world at large: genetic engineering, terraforming, psionics, spaceport, prime directive, ion drive, Tellurian, neutronium.   He is the only writer to receive both SFWA's Grand Master Award and the Horror Writer of America's Lifetime Achievement Award. The University of Eastern New Mexico, where he taught for many years, has a Jack Williamson library wing.
