About the Author
Hugo Gernsback was born in Luxenbourg as Hugo Gernsbacher in August 16, 1884. He is best known today as the Father of Science Fiction, and the person the annual sci-fi writers awards "Hugos" have been named after. But he was many other things as well -- an author, editor, publisher, sexologist, and music composer -- to name a few. You can find his complete biography with a simple Google search.
