Gerald Page was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1939 and discovered Fandom 15 years later. He began collecting SF in the early 1950s and, in 1954, joined the Atlanta Science Fiction Organization, where he met Jerry Burge and Hank Reinhardt, kicking off a long, wild and storied pair of friendships. In 1963 he fulfilled his life's ambition by seeing his first professional SF story printed in the March issue of Analog. He became a professional editor in 1969, starting a long association with TV Guide magazine. He has also edited Witchcraft and Sorcery magazine (formerly Coven 13), the Arkham House anthology Nameless Places, four volumes of The Year's Best Horror Stories for DAW Books, and also for DAW, Heroic Fantasy, co-edited with Hank Reinhardt. He continues to write, much of his fiction appearing these days on the website www.planetarystories.com, edited by the legendary Shelby Vick. He is also a well-known collector of pulp magazines, and an active writer of so-called neo-pulp fiction. He is believed to have been the first such with the creation of The Armadillo, a character that is a take-off of such pulp characters as The Shadow, in 1956.
