Science Fiction Author Birthday - Brian W. Aldiss

Brian Aldiss
Born August 18, 1925, British science fiction author Brian Aldiss was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 2000 and inducted by the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2004. He has received two Hugo Awards, one Nebula Award, and one John W. Campbell Memorial Award. His influential works include the short story "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long", the basis for the Stanley Kubrick-developed Steven Spielberg film A.I. Artificial Intelligence.

Join me in wishing Brian a Happy 90th!

Received the 1962 Hugo for The Long Afternoon of Earth
in the Best Short Fiction category
Received the 1987 Hugo for Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction

Received the 1966 Nebula for The Saliva Tree in the Novella category


  1. I haven't read a great deal of Aldiss,yet truly appreciated Hothouse,Greybeard,The Interpreter and a book of short stories which are still on my racks amongst the other SF.My daughter as of late read my old copy of Hothouse and altogether delighted in it as well.There is such a ton of great British SF.I reread once in a while (however I'm on an Asimov right now) and have recently begun on Iain M Banks.

    1. In addition to Aldiss my early entry into UK SF writers was through John Christopher and John Wyndham and later Alastair Reynolds and Charles Stross. Of course you can never go wrong with Asimov.
