On This Day: E C Tubb was born

Courtesy of our friends at the Hugo Award-winning Encyclopedia of Science Fiction – and, in particular, their excellent On This Day function – we are able to celebrate the birth of one of the great figures of British science fiction: Edwin Charles Tubb, born on this day in 1919.

Author of over 100 novels, including the 33-volume Dumarest Saga, E.C. Tubb was a stalwart of post-war British SF, a founder member of the British Science Fiction Association and the first editor of Vector, the critical journal of the BSFA. Tubb was among the very first authors signed by SF Gateway and we’re delighted to be able to make his work available once more – in eBook format and with a selection of his work in trade paperback omnibus edition:
