Frank M. Robinson has been writing and editing since 1950, when his story "The Maze" appeared in Astounding Science Fiction. Primarily a writer of short fiction in his early career, his fiction output almost dropped entirely during his years as an editor (1959-1973). After his stint at Playboy, Frank began a new career writing technothrillers.
There's another side to Frank, though. For many years, he has been collecting pulps - the cheap magazines with lurid covers and titles such as Thrill Book, Jungle Stories and Weird Tales. Frank's recent book, Pulp Culture: the Art of Fiction Magazines (written with Lawrence Davidson) is a pictorial history of these magazines.
