Frederik Pohl  
Birth: 26 Nov 1919 Brooklyn, NY, USA
Death: 02 Sep 2013 Palatine, IL, USA

From the "About the Author" page in "The Siege of Eternity":

A mutliple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author, Frederik Pohl has done just about everything one can do in the science-fiction field.  His most famous work is undoubtedly the novel Gateway, which won the Hugo, Nebula, and John W. Campbell Memorial Awards for best SF novel.  Man Plus won the Nebula Award.  His mature work is marked by a serious intellectual agenda and strongly held sociopolitical beliefs, without sacrificing narrative drive.  In addition to his successful solo fiction, Pohl has collaborated successfully with a variety of writers, including C. M. Kornbluth and Jack Williamson.  A Pohl/Kornbluth collabortation, The Space Merchants, is a long-time classic of satiric science fiction.  The Starchild Trilogy with Williamson is one of the more notable collaborations in the field.  Pohl has been a magazine editor in the field since he was very young, piloting World of If to three successive Hugos for Best Magazine.  He also has edited original-story anthologies, including the early and notable Star series of the early 1950s.  He has at various times been a literary agent, and editor of lines of science fiction books, and a president of the Science Fiction Writers of America.  For a number of years he has been active in the World SF movement.  He and his wife, Elizabeth Anne Hull, a prominent academic active in the Science Fiction Research Association, live outside Chicago, Illinois.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapter relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
