On This Day: E. C. Tubb (1919 – 2010)

15 October 2012

Another gem of SF did-you-know, courtesy of our friends at the Hugo Award-winning Encyclopedia of Science Fiction: on this day, in 1919, Edwin Charles Tubb was born.

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.

E. C. 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.
