All through my adolescence there was little I wanted as badly as to see a story bearing my name appear in one of the science-fiction magazines...

But even after making those 550 sales -- or 650, or 750, or however many it was -- I still have not lost touch with the adolescent boy within me, the one who bought those issues of Astounding Science Fiction and Thrilling Wonder Stories in the far-off 1940s and dreamed of being a writer some day, by which he meant selling a story or two to one of those magazines. Whenever I see my name on a magazine cover, he reacts with astonishment and delight. So now, looking back over my long career, bringing together a representative sampling of stories from each of the six decades -- so far -- in which my work has found publication, I shake my head in wonder at the way it all turned out, and give silent thanks to all.
