Raymond King Cummings (1887-1957) was an American science fiction author known as one of the founding fathers of the “science-fiction pulp” genre. He initially began working as a technical writer for Thomas Edison until 1919 when his first short story “The Girl in the Golden Atom” was published to became a full-size novel in 1922. Publishing over 750 novels and short stories under his name and various pen names including Ray King, Gabrielle Cummings and Gabriel Wilson, Cummings also anonymously scripted comic book stories for Timely Comics, the predecessor to Marvel Comics. He is best known for his quote, “Time . . . is what keeps everything from happening at once.” Time becomes the theme for many of his later novels and short stories.
In The Exile of Time, a girl is kidnapped in 1777 and brought into modern New York by a man and his mechanical servant. The strange man and his servant have been seen in other centuries, and a sinister plot on cities in the future unfolds.
In addition to The Exiles of Time, Faded Page also has 40 other titles by Ray Cummings including The Girl in the Golden Atom.
