Murray Leinster was the pseudonym of Will F itzgerald Jenkins Before he turned 20 Leinster had sold his first story, "The Foreigner," to H. Mencken's Smart Set in He would sell quite regularly to this magazine over the next several years, and began to sell to a plethora of other pulp magazines of the time as well, including magazines catering to the western, romance, jungle, and detective audiences, and stories to the detective genre's most famous pulp Black Mask.
When Weird Tales began publishing in , Leinster's stories would soon appear in its hallowed pages. He was a consummate professional and could write for any market. Leinster's "The Runaway Skyscraper" first appeared in the February 22, issue of Argosy , and was then reprinted in the June issue the third of Amazing Stories. It is credited as being his first science fiction story.
The Silver Menace and A Thousand Degrees Below Zero
Leinster is best known in the science fiction community when he is remembered at all these days, which is most unfortunate for perhaps three classic stories. It is akin to what we now regard as the Alternate History yarn. Steven H Silver -- who created and maintains the Murray Leinster website -- also created the Sidewise Awards in the story's honor in for the best Alternate History story of the year both novel and short length , and anyone wishing to learn more of this neglected master would do well to visit the site.
The second, chronologically, of Leinster's three most famous stories is "First Contact," which saw print in the May issue of Astounding Science Fiction. It is perhaps Leinster's most famous story and was honored by inclusion in the landmark volume The Science Fiction Hall of Fame ed.
Robert Silverberg, The third in Leinster's classic triumvirate is perhaps the greatest instance of SFnal prognostication in science fiction history.

Aside from the terminology employed to describe the internet after all this was written just after World War II , Leinster nails it with uncanny accuracy. Centralized servers "tanks" connecting the individual computers "Logics" in every home, the ability to research any subject or topic by pushing a few buttons, email, entertainment programs, a new avenue for wrongdoing by those clever enough to exploit it--Leinster imagined it all, thought it through with unerring accuracy, and was professional enough to write a crackling good story around his idea to boot.
An absolute must-read and a story that completely boggled Isaac Asimov even decades after its publication. But these are stories written by a much-matured author, an author writing in his late 30s into the decade of his 50s, a dedicated writer who had written hundreds of stories and many novels in a variety of genres, who had supported himself with his writing since his very early 20s.
But every burgeoning writer must start somewhere and most writers' first struggling efforts--with the rare exception--are necessarily less than polished compared to their later work. This was true of Murray Leinster. Though prolific from his early first sales while barely into his 20s, and full of the rich inventiveness and worked-out detail which would characterize much of his best later work, many of his first efforts left a lot to be desired in the realm of line by line, technical craft. Publisher Tom Roberts is but one of an ever-growing number of those doing a great service, not only for the science fiction and fantasy reader, but for all those who love reading exciting tales of yesteryear from any genre, by digging into archives and researching and bringing to light once again forgotten, overlooked, or early work by many a classic pulp magazine author.
They are to be commended and enthusiastically supported.
