"Hollerbochen's Dilema" (1938) is the first published amatuer story, appearing in the fanzine Imagination. First professional story is "The Pendulum," (1941) written with Henry Hasse for Super Science Stories.

There was another amateur work, "The Death of Mr. McCarthy," presumably a short story, which appeared in Ray's school newspaper the same year as "Hollerbochen's Dilemma" and may have preceded it. I have bumped up a number of threads listing obscure stories in case anyone wants to peruse them.
