The Comet Doom by Edmond Hamilton:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"In presenting' this new author to our readers, all we can say is that we hope that this story will not be the last one by Mr. Hamilton to appear in Amazing Stories. For sheer audacity of imagination and for the presentation of good scientifiction, we believe that Mr. Hamilton will soon find a place of his own in the minds of every reader. There is so much that is novel, so much that is interesting in this story, that we are sure that it will be widely acclaimed by every one."

Classic story by Hamilton is still a great read; he begins by recounting how a man walked around Lake Erie for pleasure, and then encounters an alien invasion!
