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. He graduated from Columbia University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature in 1956, but continued to write fiction. His first published novel was a children’s book, The Uprising on Alpha-S (1956), and the very next year he received his first Hugo Award as the “Best Novice Writer.” In the next four years, Silverberg, according to his own estimates, wrote a million words per year for various magazines.
