About the Author
Poul Anderson (1926¿2001) grew up bilingual in a Danish American family. After earning a physics degree at the University of Minnesota, he found writing science fiction more satisfactory. Admired for his "hard" science fiction, mysteries, and historical novels, he was responsible for classic books like The Broken Sword and Brain Wave. A founder of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, he became a Grand Master, and was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.
