Author information

Alfred Bester (1913-87) was born in New York and educated at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia. He was a scriptwriter and journalist by profession but he set the science fiction world alight in the 1950s with THE DEMOLISHED MAN, THE STARS MY DESINTATION and his extraordinary short stories. He blazed a trail for the SF New Wave of the 1960s and the cyberpunk writers of the 1980s.
