A book by Clifford Simak

Clifford Donald Simak, (1904-1988) One of the greatest American science fiction writers - was born on August 3, 1904 in Wisconsin (it is no coincidence that many of his works take place there).

University of Wisconsin, Madison, but did not graduate.Worked as a reporter and news editor for the city newspaper of Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he lived all his life.Although his first science fiction story was published by Simak in 1931, recognition came to him later - in the late 30s, when he began to collaborate in the magazine "Estounding", which was edited by John Campbell.

Together with Asimov, Van Vogt, Del Rey, Kuttner, Sturgeon, Hanline, who were published in Campbell`s magazine, Simak is considered the father of modern American science fiction, and thanks to these writers, the period from the late 1930s to the second half of the 1940s is rightfully called the "golden age" of US science fiction. 1957, when his story "Once on Mercury" was published on the pages of the Znanie-Sila magazine. Since then, his novels "All Living ...", "Almost Like People", "Reserve of Goblins", "City", "Ring Around the Sun" and many others have been published in Russian. Since the early 1960s, Simak switched mainly to writing novels, the most significant of which is Transfer Station (1963), also awarded the Hugo Prize, but his other books of the time are What Can Be Easier than Time (1961 ), "Almost like people" (1962), "All living things" (1965) are not too inferior to him. In 1968, the famous novel "Goblin Reserve" was published, almost immediately translated into Russian and became extremely popular among Soviet science fiction fans. Simak`s novels published in the 70s and 80s are noticeably inferior to those previously published, the most significant of which are "A Choice of Gods" (1972), "A Heritage of Stars" (1977), "The Visitors" (1980). The short story "The Grotto of Dancing Deer" (1980) won the Hugo and Nebula awards. A distinctive feature of Saimak`s creativity is belief in reason, in a good beginning in man and humanity, a call for peace and unity of all who live on planet Earth and with whom else earthlings may meet. More than thirty novels, collections of novellas and short stories, numerous literary awards, including the most prestigious American science fiction Hugo Prize, of which Simak has become a laureate many times - this is the result of more than fifty years of creative activity of this patriarch of the sci-fi genre. In 1977, Saimak was awarded the "Grand Master Nebula" prize. In the same year he retired. He passed away on April 25, 1988. http://www.csimak.ru/
