ADVENTURE TALES #3 celebrates the work of "Murray Leinster" -- the pen name of William Fitzgerald Jenkins (1896-1975) -- whose writing career spanned the first six decades of the 20th century. From mystery and adventure stories in the earliest years to science fiction in his later years, he worked steadily and at a highly professional level of craftsmanship longer than most writers of his generation. He won a Hugo Award in 1956 for his novelet "Exploration Team," and in 1995 the Sidewise Award for Alternate History took its name from his classic story, "Sidewise in Time." His last original work appeared in 1967. Also included: "Land Sharks and Others," a tale of piracy not on the high seas, by H. Bedford-Jones; "Light on a Subject" a tale of pearl-harvesting and sales, by Raymond S. Spears; "Channa's Tabu," by Harold Lamb; "Forbidden Fruit," by John D. Swain; "Kill That Headline," by Robert Leslie Bellem; "The Floating Island," by Philip M. Fisher; and George Allan England's tale of the Dark Continent, "Africa." This is the special book paper edition, with extra content: "Nerve" and "The Street of Magnificent Dreams," by Murray Leinster; "The Moon-Calves," by Raymond S. Spears; and "Pirates' Gold," by H. Bedford-Jones.
