Murray Leinster to Be Honored

The Virginia State Legistlature has passed a resolution making June 27, 2009 Will F. Jenkins Day. Jenkins wrote under a variety of pseudonyms, most notably “Murray Leinster.” His science fiction stories include “A Logic Named Joe” and “The Runaway Skyscraper.” Jenkins won the Hugo for “Exploration Team” and the Retro-Hugo for “First Contact.” The Sidewise Award for Alternate History was named for his short story “Sidewise in Time.” Jenkins’s family is planning a ceremony for that date.
