Cummings, Ray: The Girl In The Golden Atom. v1. 20 July 07

I first encountered the Sci-Fi writings of Ray Cummings back in the mid 60s when I was a teenager full of angst, hormones, and a voracious appetite for reading. Cummings didn't satisfy the hormonal issues, but he sure did tell a good story. (This was about the time I had "graduated" from Burroughs and was poised tentatively between the writings of Roger Zelazny and the fantastical fictions from the pulp era.)

I haven't read Cummings since that adolescent, pimply era, so I don't know how well he holds up today. The general consensus of critics is that he had a huge influence upon the early development of science fiction - he was actually an assistant for Thomas A. Edison, from 1914 -1919. Many critics cite his lack of growth as a writer.

This novel came out in 1922 and is considered a classic of early science fiction.

I hope you enjoy it.

Don
