About the Author:

David Gerrold started writing professionally in 1967. His first sale was "The Trouble with Tribbles" episode of Star Trek. Within five years, he had published seven novels, two books about television production, three anthologies, and a short story collection. He was nominated for the Hugo and Nebula awards six times in four years. Since 1967, he has published more than forty books. Several of his novels are considered classics, including The Man Who Folded Himself, When HARLIE Was One, and the four books in The War Against The Chtorr.

From Booklist:

The author of the number-one favorite Star Trek episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles," fields a retrospective of his work that begins and ends with examples of one of his specialties, the barely sf story. The award-winning "The Martian Child" (germ of the identically titled 2002 book and forthcoming movie) is nearly straight autobiography, based on Gerrold's adoption of a nine-year-old boy. The recent "thirteen o'clock" is about a tough, gay 'Nam vet's encounter with a college kid who tried to bash him; it only feels like sf. Between those pretty marvelous pieces come many more explicitly sf stories, clutches of previously uncollected comic aphorisms and limericks, the Kafkaesque first-time publication "The Strange Death of Orson Welles" (a genuine ee-yew! reading experience), Gerrold's preferred text of a precipitately published short novel (Chess with a Dragon), and a never-produced Star Trek: The Next Generation script that includes sympathetic gay characters and alludes to AIDS. He's a funny, yammery stylist, sometimes reminiscent of Mark Twain, but what really distinguishes him is that his favorite theme is love. Olson, Ray
