Read full description of the books The Day They H-Bombed Los Angeles:It's a trashy sci-fi novel from 1961, published by Ace Books, and entirely captivating for the 2 or so hours it takes to read. The title comes true by the second paragraph, and the early chapters describe the chaos that would come to those able to survive in a fall-out shelter. Survival isn't easy, but it appears to be possible (even if 1961 public knowledge about radiation wasn't as strong as what we know now) but there is something else out there in the city that is coming after the humans we've come to know and root for. Williams is stuck in the tropes of trashy paperbacks concerning women - my fave character is Rena, the haughty actress who insists on running around naked because she's been in a nudist colony - but aside from that light dose of sex, the novel could easily be transported into a long episode of The Twilight Zone, especially if Irwin Allen lent a hand. I can't help myself, I love the pulp zing of books like these, even if I wouldn't want to read them exclusively.
Read information about the authorThe prolific author Robert Moore Williams published more than 150 novels and short stories under his given name as well as a variety of pseudonyms including John S. Browning, H.H. Harmon, Robert Moore, Russell Storm and E.K. Jarvis.
Williams was born in Farmington, Missouri and earned a journalism degree from the University of Missouri, Columbia. He had a full-time writing career from 1937 through 1972 and cut his teeth on such publications as Amazing Stories, Fantastic Adventures, Astounding, Thrilling Wonder and Startling.
In 1955 Williams cranked out The Chaos Fighters, the first of 30 novels he would write over the next 15 years. These novels include the Jongor and ,Zanthar series. His most unusual book, however, is one that is labeled as fiction, but is actually an autobiography: Love is Forever - We Are for Tonight (Curtis 06101, 1970). In this short, 141-page work Williams presents a description of his childhood and then discusses his experimentation with hallucinogenic gasses, Dianetics and 1950s-era communes.
Williams married Margaret Jelley in 1938 and they had one child. The couple divorced in 1958. According to the Social Security Death Index, Williams died in May of 1977 in Dateland, Arizona.
