POUL WILLIAM ANDERSON


Poul Anderson (U.S.A., 11/25/1926- )

Poul Anderson was born on November 25, 1926 and he currently lives in Orlinda, California. He has published a great number of works throughout his career, which started in the early '50's with short stories that appeared in some Sci-Fi magazines. He has continued to publish works up until his latest works which were originally printed in 1994, but his popularity has given him several additional printings of his works.

Throughout his career, Poul Anderson has won several awards for writing including eight Hugo awards, three Nebula awards, and one Gandalf Grand Master award. He is considered by most people, who have read his works, to be among the better writers in science fiction, in league with authors like Alfred Bester and Ursula LeGuin. Anderson wrote novels and short stories in Fiction, Science Fiction and Fantasy. Anderson also spends significant time writing humor in each of the fields mentioned above. Based on the number of awards, and the high number of reprints, it is easy to see that he has been quite successful in all of these fields. His daughter is married to Greg Bear.
