Jones, “Ebbtide.” “Ebbtide” Jones was created by “Miles Shelton,” the pseudonym of Don Wilcox (Lester Allison, Ben Gleed, Whispering Gorilla), and appeared in four short stories from 1939 to 1942, beginning with “Whirlpool in Space” (Amazing Stories, Nov. 1939).

In the future “Ebbtide” Jones and Stan Kendrick are a pair of friends who want to have a profitable “career of peaceful beachcombers of space.” Kendrick is a young scientist and Jones is a salvage man and beachcomber. But despite their competence their attempts to salvage wreckage in space, from gravitation eddies and other such, lead to adventure, such as the case of the murders of some Zandonian soldiers.
