Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cyril M. Kornbluth (July 23, 1923 - March 21, 1958) was an American science fiction author and a notable member of the Futurians. He used a variety of pen-names, including C. M. Kornbluth, Cecil Corwin, S. D. Gottesman, Edward J. Bellin, Kenneth Falconer, Walter C. Davies, Simon Eisner, and Jordan Park. The "M" in Kornbluth's name may have been in tribute to his wife, Mary Byers; Frederik Pohl confirmed the lack of any actual middle name in at least one interview.Kornbluth was born and grew up in Inwood in New York City. As a teenager, he became a member of the Futurians, the influential group of science fiction fans and writers. While a member of the Futurians, he met and became friends with Isaac Asimov, Frederik Pohl, Donald A. Wollheim, Robert A. W. Lowndes, and his future wife Mary Byers. He also participated in the Fantasy Amateur Press Association.
