5 Quotations from Raymond F. Jones

asteroid field n. 1942 R. F. Jones Starting Point in Astounding Science-Fiction Feb. 75/2 The crazy kid, instead of curving up over the asteroid field, he’s smashing through the thick of them at nearly four gees. He’ll bust a gut even if he don’t hit another asteroid.
earthshine n. 1957 R. F. Jones Gardener in Science Fiction Stories July 105/1 Could you give up watching the Earthshine from Mare Imbrium and exploring the ruins of the illfated [sic] Mars colony on the moon? Would you abandon those ancient vessels standing in the pumice of Mare Serenetatis in exchange for a backslap from Tom Marlow?
Ganymedian n. 1943 R. F. Jones Swimming Lesson in Astounding Science-Fiction Apr. 10/2 I know about the Korphs and the Titans and the Phobosians and the Ganymedians.
light-day n. 1956 R. F. Jones Academy for Pioneers in Astounding Science Fiction May 94/2 It was an insignificant run to the region of Proteus VI.
