About Author
He lived in Illinois until about 1933-34, when his family headed out to live in Los Angeles, but first lived very shortly in Tucson, Arizona. He graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1938, then spent most of his time at the library, where (according to Ray) he graduated from the library at the age of 28.

Ray is a winner of the Nebula, Prometheus, O.Henry Memorial, Balrog, Bram Stoker, Benjamin Franklin, Aviation-Space Writers and World Fantasy (Lifetime Achievement) Awards. It's surely redundant to say he's a SFWA Grand Master. He has won the Gandalf Award for Lifetime Contribution to Fantasy (in 1980), and published his first story in 1941. A writer for TV, radio, theater and film, his credits including a script for the film Moby Dick.

Died on July 5th 2012 in Loas Angeles, California after a lengthy illness.
