Multiple Hugo and Nebula award–winner FREDERIK POHL was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America. Pohl has also been an award-winning collaborator and editor of magazines and anthologies. Most recently he won yet another Hugo Award for his blog, "www.thewaythefutureblogs.com." He and his wife, editor and academic Elizabeth Anne Hull, live outside of Chicago.Review:
“Frederik Pohl, one of the old pros of the genre, never takes unnecessary risks. For him, science fiction is a form of play--an excusable indulgence since he plays it so much better than most people.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“We might expect a Frederik Pohl novel to be solid, competent, thoroughly readable sf, well-plotted and brilliantly dramatized. Man Plus is all of these, and it is also horrifyingly believable, a dark mirror held up to today's world...Man Plus is probably Frederik Pohl's best novel so far, and surely one of the most exciting, brilliantly conceived and capably-written sf novels of the past decade.” ―John Sladek, Foundation
“Pohl is quietly ready to discuss just about any aspect of literature, science, publishing, or politics, and his decades of experience in speculative fiction make him a trove of knowledge. But don't let his nice-guy reputation fool you. If you're going to brag to Frederik Pohl about not reading science fiction, you'd better duck.” ―Amazing Stories
“The most consistently able writer science fiction, in all its forms, has yet produced.” ―Kingsley Amis, author of New Maps of Hell
“Peerless in his own generation, with few equals of any age. One of the 50 most influential people in the Chicago Book World.” ―Newscity
“One of the grand old men of SF.” ―Publishers Weekly
