I got into the genre by way of Lester del Rey. My father brought me home del Rey’s novel (as Philip St. John) Rocket Jockey, from the bookstore in the Washington airport. It was the first novel I’d ever had, and when I finished it I went back to the beginning and started over, and so read it several times over that Christmas vacation. I eventually learned that you only had to read a book once, but after Rocket Jockey and a few other Winston juveniles, I was hooked. I few months later, age nine, I discovered science fiction magazines, and was ruined for life.
