David Nordley (b. 1947) lives in California. At one time he studied to be an astronomer, but in 1967 he joined the US Air Force to avoid being drafted into Vietnam. Mainly Nordley was engaged in calculations for launching satellites. During this period, he met the physicist and writer Robert L. Forward, who greatly influenced his future destiny. In 1989, Nordley retired with the rank of major, and a year later began publishing short stories. In 2002, an electronic collection of his small prose titled “After the Vikings. Stories about the Mars of the future "(" After the Viking: Stories of a Future Mars "). Nordley`s works are devoted to space exploration, and their main theme, as a rule, is the dramatic aspects of human life in the distant future. Nordley believes that the term “hard” when applied to science fiction should be understood as “accurate” in terms of facts and descriptions. He himself would prefer the term "scientific realism", and, in his opinion, even if a science fiction writer has to invent new laws of nature, it is still necessary to adhere to plausibility, and not sacrifice it for the sake of showiness. Nordley argues that science fiction writers should be guided by the tradition of J. Orwell, Jules Verne and Arthur Clarke, the science fiction-prediction, which makes the reader think about what might be. In addition, Nordley believes that science plays the same role in science fiction as jurisprudence in a detective story or history in a historical novel.
