Writer Kim Stanley Robinson was born in Orange County, California in 1952. He earned a B. A. and Ph. D. at the University of California at San Diego and an M. A. at Boston University. His first trilogy of books, concerning a post-nuclear holocaust: Orange County, collectively won a Nebula Award and two Hugos, but he may be better known for his Mars trilogy, which chronicles the colonization of Mars and spans hundreds of years. He has won an Asimov Award, a World Fantasy Award, a Locus Reader's Poll Award, and a John W. Campbell Award.
