Stanley Grauman Weinbaum was a science fiction writer who lived from 1902 to 1935. Prior to
the initial acceptance of his science fiction stories Weinbaum wrote numerous manuscripts
for the freelance romantic and mystery market under the pseudonym Marge Stanley, the
majority unsold. In 1934, in what is now regarded as the "Golden Age of Science Fiction",
Weinbaum released the first of his "Planetary Series", A Martian
Odyssey. It was the first published science fiction story of the author and the
first alien story to probe the alternative psyche of beings from extra-terrestrial bodies
and explore the eco-systems of other planets all from a non-earth based view. It was also
the first of the author's stories to appear during his short two year period of publishing
before he died prematurely of cancer in 1935.
