Jerry Olshen (full name - Jerry Brian Olshen, Jerry Brian Oltion; in fact, his surname is pronounced Oltien, but in Russian publications the wrong version of Olshen is often used) is an American science fiction writer, born in 1957 in Sheridan, Wyoming. Member of the "Wordos" writing group. Also known as an amateur astronomer who created a new kind of telescope called the trackball telescope. He graduated from the University of Wyoming in 1979. On August 11 of the same year, he married Kathleen Palko (Katie Olshen). During his life, Olshen changed many professions: he worked as a gardener, bricklayer, carpenter, oilman, gardener, forester, rock and roll DJ, printer, editor, publisher, computer consultant, corporate secretary and garbage truck driver. He debuted in literature in 1982 with the story Much Ado about Nothing, published in Analog magazine, after which he became one of the regular contributors to this publication, eventually surpassing Paul Anderson in the number of publications. The story "Do not dismantle!" ("Abandon in Place"), published in 1996, was nominated for all the most prestigious science fiction awards, was awarded the "Nebula" and brought fame to the author. The story of the ghostly Saturns, taking off from the abandoned launch sites of Cape Canaveral, simply required further development - and Olshen turned his story into a novel. But for hundreds of thousands of science fiction lovers, captivated by the adventures of the "crazy scientist" Alain Meissner from the famous organization NAP (Planetary Reconstruction and Research Department of Space Research Development Management), this was not enough. Then Jerry Olshen wrote "Special Star Express" - a sequel to the novel "Do not dismantle!" Jerry and his wife Katie live in Eugene, Oregon. They both write science fiction, Katy also works in the medical laboratory. Their hobbies are electric guitar, bass guitar, gardening and astronomy. Katie and Jerry still drive the 1969 VW Beetle, which Katie has owned since 1975 (meaning she has had it longer than Jerry). In September 2006, an unwary neighbor in the parking lot crashed into their car. All four wheels, bodywork, hood, bumper and engine were damaged. The couple restored the car. "Beyond Paradise" ("Paradise Passed", 2004) is Jerry`s favorite novel, which he wrote for two decades. Olshen`s notorious sense of humor is palpable in the novel, but this time humor is combined with a demonstration of social tension. In the American edition, the novel has a beautiful cover by artist Frank Wu. For most of 2005, Jerry was busy designing and building a new type of telescope, the trackball telescope, which he described in an article published in Sky & Telescope (2006). Aliases: Ryan Hughes, Don Ellis. © fantlab www.sff.net/people/j. oltion (author`s official site)
