Robert Silverberg

Robert Silverberg (born Robert Silverberg, born January 15, 1935, Brooklyn, New York, USA) is a prolific American author best known for his science fiction works, which received the Hugo and Nebula awards.

Silverberg, himself an insatiable reader since childhood, began to publish his stories in science fiction magazines very early.
