From 1951 he started publishing science fiction, and nonfiction on medicine and science. His Sci Fi frequently had a medical theme. He earned a M.D. degree in 1955 from the University of Pennsylvania. His writing for science fiction magazines helped pay for his medical degree. He practiced medicine in North Bend, Washington.
