Before "Star Wars," we had "Star Trek." 

Before "Star Trek," we had flying saucers to think about… and worry about appearing in real life. 

Chalk that worry up as a success for one Ray Palmer. 

As a writer and editor on some of the country's premier fantasy and science fiction publications, he cranked out a lot of influential material in the mid-20th century. 

Author Fred Nadis tells Palmer's story in "The Man from Mars: Ray Palmer’s Amazing Pulp Journey."
