From my pre-teen years well into my early teens, Hamilton was my favorite science-fiction writer. He was one of the authors I was reading with a flashlight, under the covers, when I was supposed to be sleeping.
Edmond Hamilton's He That Hath Wings is the first science-fiction story that I remember reading. I'm sure that I'd read other stuff before then, but Wings is the very first science-fiction story that stuck with me. that might have something to do with Gil Kane's lovely comic adaptation, it might not, as I'm sure I must've read that, too, around the same ( ish ) time. probably got a lot more to do with it just being a great story.
