Now in paperback, the rollicking, critically acclaimed true story of the legendary writer and editor who ruled over America's sci-fi, fantasy, and supernatural pulp journals in the mid-twentieth century: Ray Palmer. "Palmer could not have asked for a more sympathetic chronicler, or a better one, than Fred Nadis. His prose and his pronouncements are everything Palmer's practically never were: restrained, nuanced, intelligently considered. Nadis has a great story, and he relates it exquisitely." —Jerome Clark, Fortean Times "Fred Nadis's insightful biography demonstrates that Palmer is significant as well as intriguing." —The Washington Post "One of science fiction's greatest gadflies gets his due in this lively and entertaining biography." —Publishers Weekly "Lucidly written and unfailingly lively, The Man from Mars is a biography worthy of its subject." —Fate magazine
