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.

The distinctive literary style and unusual ideas of science fiction pioneer Henry Kuttner

A writer who has not received due recognition from readers is not uncommon in literature. Henry Kuttner was one of them. Having received great acclaim from his colleagues and followers, Kuttner did not gain widespread fame among the fans.
Briefly about the writer
Being one of the very first science fiction writers, Kuttner can hardly be called a pioneer who laid the foundations for future writers – no, Henry wrote on topics that were usual for that time. He was distinguished by a special literary style, a sense of humor, unusual ideas and the way he beat the stamps that were developing in those days. His literary career lasted a little less than a quarter of a century, during which he managed to try himself in a variety of genres.
Interesting Facts
Kuttner wrote using more than a dozen pseudonyms, making it impossible to establish the exact number of works he wrote.
Ray Bradbury once admitted that Kuttner finished his first horror story Candle (published in Weird Tales magazine, Continue reading
