Joseph Henry A. Delaney ( Joseph Henry A. Delaney ) is an American writer and lawyer. Born on February 5, 1932. I started writing quite late (after 50 years). The first publication in 1982 earned him a Hugo nomination. About the reasons that brought him to science fiction, he said: “I strive to write what I like to read myself, that is," hard "SF. However, the reason I turned to science fiction at such a venerable age is trivial: I read several stories with a legal bias and found that there was no logic in them. The authors of the stories treated the law like magic, ignoring the fact that jurisprudence is a rigorous science, perhaps stricter than mathematics. In short, I set out to write a fantastic story, "correct" from the point of view of a lawyer. " Subsequently, the author was nominated twice more for Hugo and won the prize awarded by the readers of the Analog magazine. Critic Don D`Amass, author of an article on Joseph Delaney`s work in the seminal book Science Fiction Writers of the 20th Century, noted: “The flourishing of paperback literature made life unusually difficult for science fiction authors who specialized in short form. The situation was further aggravated by the significant contraction of the specific magazine market. However, despite this, Delaney, whose work is based on stories, was able to attract the attention of wide readership to his works. And his stories, co-written with Mark Stigler, only strengthened his reputation as one of the most successful authors of the 80s. " He died in December 1999. © If Not to be confused with Joseph Delaney http://flibusta.net/a/2502
