Meet the Author

Robert Albert Bloch (1917-1994) was a prolific American writer, primarily of crime, horror and science fiction. Bloch wrote hundreds of short stories and over twenty novels, usually crime fiction, science fiction and, perhaps most influentially, horror fiction (Psycho). Bloch was a contributor to pulp magazines such as WEIRD TALES in his early career, and was also a prolific screenwriter. He was the recipient of the Hugo Award (for his story "That Hell-Bound Train"), the Bram Stoker Award, and the World Fantasy Award. Horror writer H. P. Lovecraft was a close friend and mentor to Bloch.

Marion Zimmer Bradley (1930-1999) was well known as the creator of the DARKOVER and MISTS OF AVALON series. Her works often have a feminist outlook.

Raymond Zinke Gallun (1911-1994) was an important early sci-fi pulp writer whose works helped to popularize the genre. He published dozens of stories in the pulp magazines of the 1930s and remained popular during the post-World War II "Golden Age" of science fiction.

Andre Alice Norton (1912-2005) published her first novel in 1934, and was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master Award from the World Science Fiction Society in 1977. She won the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the SFWA in 1983.

H. Beam Piper (1904-1964) (Henry or Horace Beam Piper) was an influential American science fiction author of novels and short stories. Largely self-educated, Piper worked as a night watchman for a railroad before publishing a series of short stories in the 1950s. In the early 1960s, Piper published several successful novels including LITTLE FUZZY, which won the Hugo Award in 1963. Piper committed suicide in 1964.

Herbert George Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific 19th- and 20th century science fiction writer. Together with French author Jules Verne, Wells has been called "The Father of Science Fiction." Wells was an outspoken socialist and sympathetic to pacifist views. Best known for his early works of science fiction, his later works became increasingly political in nature.
