Bruce Gordon was an ex-fighter, ex-gambler, ex-cop, ex-reporter, and now he was an ex-patriot of Earth. Security shipped him to Mars with a knife, 100 credits, and a yellow card that meant no return.


Del Rey first started publishing stories in pulp magazines in the late 1930s, at the dawn of the Golden Age of Science Fiction. He was associated with the most prestigious science fiction magazine of the era, "Astounding Science Fiction," from the time its editor John W. Campbell published his first short story in the April 1938 issue: "The Faithful", already under the name Lester del Rey. The December 1938 issue featured his story "Helen O'Loy" which was selected for the prestigious anthology "The Science Fiction Hall of Fame." By the end of 1939 he had also placed stories in "Weird Tales" (edited by Farnsworth Wright) and "Unknown (Campbell)," which featured more horror and more fantasy respectively.
