Man of Two Worlds

TITLE: Man of Two Worlds: My Life in Science Fiction and Comics
AUTHOR: Julius Schwartz

The late Julius Schwartz's memoir is a breezy tour of science fiction fandom, including Schwartz's role in birthing the first SF fanzine and his involvement in the first cons, including the first WorldCon. He covers his career as an agent for a Who's Who of SFF writers, including Ray Bradbury, then his career switch to editing over at DC Comics. I knew some of the stories, but not nearly all, and though fairly lightweight as memoirs go, this is a quick, fun read.
