He has written hundreds of short stories, and his many longer works include Lost Race of Mars, which was chosen as one of the best hundred children's books in 1960, the award-winning novella Nightwings, and Lord Valentine's Castle, praised in the New York Times Book Review for its "imaginative fusion of action, sorcery and science fiction."
