Resurrected Science Fiction Authors

The Singing Bone

A German folk story tells of a peasant who fashioned a flute from the bone of a murdered man but when he tried to play it, it burst into a song identifying the murderer. In this collection of seven cases, that eminent lecturer on medical jurisprudence, Dr. John Thorndyke, makes bones, and blood, fingerprints, and tobacco sing out to proclaim the guilt or innocence of those involved.

Floyd Wallace Resurrected

During the 1950’s Floyd Wallace was one of the regular contributors to magazines such as Astounding, Amazing Science Fiction Stories, and Galaxy. Though many of his stories have appeared in anthologies over the years, the only collection of his works is a translation into Italian.

Women Resurrected

The 50’s were part of a golden age of science fiction, an era when the short story reached its pinnacle. It was also a time when women writers entered the field in unprecedented numbers. They brought a fresh perspective to a genre that had previously been dominated by testosterone driven action. Some went on to become major figures in science fiction while others wrote a story or two before leaving the field, but collectively they had an impact and laid the groundwork for the women writers of today.

Stanley Weinbaum Resurrected

From his first published story, Stanley Weinbaum seemed destined to become one of the greats of science fiction, until his career was tragically cut short after a mere year and a half.

Jesse F. Bone Resurrected

Jesse Franklin Bone is one of those writers from the Golden Age of Science fiction who’s works appeared regularly in the late 50’s and early 60’s, but whose work now is unfortunately largely forgotten and hard to find.

Mari Wolf Resurrected

In the early 50’s Mari Wolf was well known in the science fiction fan scene. During this period she wrote a column on this topic for the magazine Imagination. But she was also a science fiction author in her own right, producing a small, but interesting body of work.

Murray Leinster Resurrected

For over five decades, Murray Leinster was one of the most respected names in science fiction. Though he began writing at the dawn of the pulp era his work evolved with the times. The ten stories collected here appeared during the 50’s, that “Golden Age” of the genre. Spanning the gamut from alien invasions to alternate realities, they form a fitting display of his talents in what was his fourth decade as a writer. Resurrected Press is proud to bring you Murray Leinster Resurrected.

Alan E. Nourse was both a physician and a writer. He produced most of his work in that period known as the “Golden Age” of Science Fiction. Best known for his novel Star Surgeon, he was also a prolific author of short stories during the 50’s. This collection includes some of his best from that era.

Robert Sheckley was one of the most interesting science fiction authors of the 50’s and 60’s. While he wrote in the same language of aliens and spaceships as many of his contemporaries, he used his works as a mirror in which he showed us a reflection of society with all its flaws and foibles.

Space Pirates, spaceship graveyards, Martian monsters, Vestan mind parasites, these are just a few of the things contained in this collection of stories drawn from the pages of Astounding, Amazing Stories, and Weird Tales. Edmond Hamilton was one of the most popular writers during the 30’s and 40’s, the period that saw the first flowering of modern science fiction. Resurrected Press is delighted to bring you this collection of some of his most intriguing works in Edmond Hamilton Resurrected.
