Harry Harrison (1925- ) is an American-born science fiction writer and leading Esperantist. Harrison is best known for his fictional master criminal "The Stainless Steel Rat" and his story MAKE ROOM! MAKE ROOM!, which served as the basis for the film SOYLENT GREEN.
Raymond F. Jones (1915-1994) was a popular science fiction writer of the 1940s-1970s, best known for his 1952 novel, THIS ISLAND EARTH, which was adapted into the 1955 film of the same name.
Murray Leinster (1896-1975) (born William Fitzgerald Jenkins) was a mainstay of the pulp magazines of the 1920s and 1930s, and following World War II he broadened his audience by writing for Radio, Television, and Hollywood. Among his accomplishments, Leinster is credited with popularizing the notion of parallel universes and the concept of the internet.
Alan E. Nourse (1928-1992) was an American science fiction author and physician. He wrote both juvenile and adult science fiction, as well as nonfiction works about medicine and science. His works generally focused on medicine and/or psionics. His most well-known work by title is THE BLADERUNNER, which lent its title to the film adaptation of Phillip K. Dick's work DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? Robert A. Heinlein dedicated his 1964 novel FARNHAM'S FREEHOLD to Nourse.
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.
Dallas McCord "Mack" Reynolds (1917-1983) was a prolific science fiction and mystery writer of the 1950s and 1960s, with much of his work being published in several pulps of that era. Reynolds was an active socialist, and his works tend to reflect this. They are often set in utopian societies where Esperanto is used as a universal language (in a similar vein to the works of Harry Harrison).
