Author Bio
Ben Bova
Ben Bova's contributions to the world of science fiction are twofold: First, he is an accomplished, award-winning author, and second, his is an editor whose work was instrumental in moving science fiction out of the "pulp" ghetto and into the mainstream. Ben Bova began writing fiction in his teens, though his first novel did not appear until 1959. He graduated from Temple University in 1954 with a B.S., then worked as a newspaper editor until 1956, when he became a technical writer. He then worked in a variety of science-oriented jobs before being appointed to succeed the legendary John W. Campbell as editor of the influential science fiction magazine "Analog" in 1971. In 1978, Bova moved on to "Omni", where he was editorial director. As an author, Bova's Kinsman series is one of the most well known in all of science fiction. As an editor, in addition to winning the Hugo Award for six of the eight years he edited "Analog", his editorial ideas significantly shaped the way that science fiction came to be perceived. As well as his science fiction achievements, he is a former president of the National Space Society, a frequent science and technical expert on the "CBS Morning News", a popular lecturer, and a scientific consultant for the film industry.
