About the author (1984)

Robert A. Heinlein was the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived. His novels have been translated into every literate language on the globe--over 25 million Heinlein books are in print in this country alone. For five decades, young readers of science fiction discovered Heinlein, then gone on to voraciously devour every Heinlein book they can get their hands on. His now-legendary "Stranger in a Strange Land" was the first hardcover bestseller by a science fiction writer. From 1975 on, every new Heinlein novel made the "New York Times" best-seller list and shipped a million copies, including "The Number of the Beast", "Friday", "Job: A Comedy of Justice", "The Cat Who Walks Through Walls", and "To Sail Beyond the Sunset". In a career spanning half a century, he wrote over forty books, and four of his novels won Hugo Awards, an unequalled record for almost four decades. For the last three generations of readers, Heinlein "is" science fiction.

Arthur C. Clarke was considered to be the greatest science fiction writer of all time. He was an international treasure in many other ways: an article he wrote in 1945 led to the invention of satellite technology. Books by Mr. Clarke - both fiction and nonfiction - have more than one hundred million copies in print worldwide. He died in 2008 at the age of 90.
