Edmond Hamilton

Edmond Hamilton (November 21, 1904 - February 1, 1977) began writing science fiction with the story "The Monster God of Mamurth" in 1928. He quickly moved on from writing Weird Tales style horror to writing space opera, a sub-genre he created along with E.E. "Doc" Smith. He wrote using several pseudonyms and, in the 1950s, was the primary force behind the Captain Future franchise.

In the mid 1940s, Hamilton became a writer for DC Comics Superman title. In 1946, he married fellow science fiction author and screen writer[?] Leigh Brackett. Following their marriage, Hamiltons output diminished, although the quality of his writing improved.
