About the Contributors

". . . a wonderful tribute volume to the departed Jack Williamson. In Memory of Wonder's Child: Jack Williamson reprints three obituaries of the long-lived Grandmaster; a slew of appreciations by his peers; two of his stories, including his last-published one, "The Mists of Time"; some comics work (including a gorgeous full-color page from the strip Beyond Mars on the back cover); and a photomontage. This is a classy yet lively memorial to an SF Pioneer, and, best of all, all sales feed into a scholarship fund in the name of Jack and Blanche Williamson."
—Paul di Filippo, Asimov's Science Fiction
