Gateway Essentials: Raymond F. Jones

Raymond F. (Fisher) Jones was born in Utah in 1915 and was a regular contributor to Astounding Stories and Galaxy Science Fiction among other pulp SF magazines. He is best known for the 1952 novel This Island Earth, which was famously filmed in 1955, one of the first major SF films to be produced in Technicolor. He died in 1994.

We’re lucky enough to publish a dozen of his books and would recommend his excellent Parallel-Worlds adventure, Renaissance, as the best place to start.

You can find more of Raymond F. Jones’s work via his Author page on the SF Gateway website and read about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
