Keyes was late arriving on the pulp scene. He was just out of college when he took the position of associate editor of Marvel Science Stories.

His first science fiction story, "Precedent," was published in Marvel Science Stories in 1952. But he would be best-known for his short story (later expanded into a novel) "Flowers for Algernon," which was published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in April 1959.

"Flowers of Algernon" would be filmed several times, but most notably in 1968 as "Charly," with Cliff Robertson winning the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the title character.
