Meet the Author

SF legend Keith Laumer was a captain in the U.S. Air Force and later an officer in the Diplomatic Corps, serving all over the world–service which provided Laumer with a solid background both for his fast-moving adventure stories including his Bolo saga which introduced supremely powerful (and highly ethical) futuristic battle tanks and his satirical comedies featuring crafty intergalactic diplomat, Retief.

Rosel George Brown attracted attention during her unfortunately brief writing career with an impressive selection of stories in leading science fiction magazines which combined science fiction and irresistible humor, ranging from the dryly witty to raucous slapstick. Brown was nominated for a Hugo Award in 1959, and her first novel, Sibyl Sue Blue, included here, was widely and favorably reviewed. Brown died of cancer in 1967 at the age of 41.
