Shelby Vick was born in 1928 and has been writing ever since he learned how to put pencil to paper and make words. His first proferssional sale was at age 19. Over the next decade, he sold four action paperbacks. Then he found less time to work as he began managing the produce department of the local A&P Food Store. This was followed by running a mimeo business, then working for MetLife which was followed by being a field man at the county property appraiser's office. He continued writing for sf fanzines and also wrote many books and stories, none of which he felt were ready to submit.

An auto accident nearly killed him and forced an early retirement. In January 2005 he published the first issue of Planetary Stories and the rest is history.
