Peter Watts

Peter Watts about himself: “He spent most of his adult life trying to decide whether to be a writer or a scientist, but eventually became their hybrid. He was awarded several awards in the field of ecophysiology of marine mammals, video documents and science fiction. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Guelf and his doctorate at the University of British Columbia. Spent ten years on training (not weak optimism, right?) And the same amount – trying to work by profession and not become a “litter” for financial groups. The latter turned out to be somewhat more complicated than he thought (ha ha) and, as a result, during the 90s he regularly received money from the “green” – for the protection of marine creatures, from the US fishing industry – for the support of a domestic producer, and from Government of Canada – for loyalty to the grave.

ROBERT HEINLINE

Failures in ordinary activities and loan debts gave Heinlein the incentive to start writing and publishing his own works of art. In 1939, he sold his first story, The Line of Life, to the publisher. After that, he earned mainly in writing, putting aside all other hobbies.

The Life Line was written in the genre of science fiction, which became the leitmotif of all the work that Robert Heinlein followed. The comments on the story were positive, and the writer decided to continue the “Life Line” with a cycle of similar works.

The result was a “History of the Future.” This cycle included several short stories, novels, and novels. The plot generalized the history of mankind in the period from XX to XXIII century. Most of the books were written at the beginning of the author’s career, as well as from 1945 to 1950. Editor John Campbell called Continue reading
