Publisher Description:

100 Most Popular Science Fiction Authors: Biographical Sketches and Bibliographies gives readers a chance to learn more about the extraordinary writers behind the mind-bending major works in the speculative genre. The 100 authors in this volume are the most accomplished in the field--popular with readers, influential to other authors, and favorites among educators and librarians.

100 Most Popular Science Fiction Authors provides a brief biography for each writer, a guide to his or her writings, and a list of recent interviews and essays for further research. Coverage of each author's career includes highlights of awards won as well as work in other popular media such as movies, television, graphic novels and game-playing. As the book clearly demonstrates, science fiction is a genre that doesn't stand still. The authors here range from the classical era to the mid-20th-century Golden Age of Science Fiction, to the popular young writers who have taken the genre, and its readers, into the 21st century.
