About the Book

This story, a classic piece of science fiction, was among the first to examine the atomic universe. In the novel The Girl in the Golden Atom, a teenage scientist discovers a secret atomic universe inside his mother's wedding band. He uses a microscope to reveal a stunning young woman seated in front of a cave inside the ring. She has him spellbound, and he shrinks to fit into her world. Ray Cummings (1887-1957), who worked for Thomas Alva Edison, was fascinated by the potential of science and started writing science fiction. When The Girl in the Golden Atom was published in 1923, it was a huge success, and Cummings went on to create the equally popular follow-up novel The People of the Golden Atom. This Bison Books version includes both books as well as a fresh introduction written by Jack Williamson.

About Author

Ray Cummings

American science fiction and comic book writer Ray Cummings (born Raymond King Cummings; August 30, 1887 - January 23, 1957) was born in the United States. From 1914 through 1919, he served as Thomas Edison's personal assistant and technical writer. The Girl in the Golden Atom, written by Sir Edwin W. Cummings and released in 1922, is regarded as one of his most important science fiction works. For The Girl In The Golden Atom, Cummings merged elements from The Diamond Lens by Fitz James O'Brien and The Time Machine by H. G. Wells. A collection of short tales that were released between 1919 and 1922 is his most well-known fictional work. The Girl in the Golden Atom by Ray Cummings first published in All-Story Magazine on March 15, 1919. Several of his stories were published in pulp magazines before being collected in books. It was a common misconception that Einstein or Feynman was the author of the adage "Time is what prevents everything from occurring at once." The Time Professor, one of his earlier works that was published in 1921, is cited as the instance where it was first used.
