Pruyn, Leonard

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1898-1973) US author, in active service during World War One, whose two short sf stories appeared a year apart: "In Time of Sorrow" in Authentic Science Fiction for February 1954 and "A La Carte" in Spaceway for February 1955. His brief sf career continued and concluded with an sf novel, World without Women (1960) with Day Keene, about the violent consequences to the world of the loss of its women (see Women in SF), with the few remaining women kept under Dystopian constraints, though it is (unusually) the men who are most often punished for violating scarcity taboos.
