About the Author
Wilson Tucker (1914-2006) Arthur Wilson 'Bob' Tucker was born in Illinois in 1914. Like many of his contemporaries, he entered science fiction as a fan - something he maintained alongside his professional writing; his fanzine Le Zombie ran from 1938 to 1975, thus coinciding with almost the entirety of his published work. He won one Hugo and two retro Hugos for his fan writing and a retrospective John W. Campbell Memorial Award for best novel. He was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2003.
