Brian Michael Stableford (n. ,[2][3] Shipley[*], Regatul Unit[4][5][6][7]) este un scriitor britanic de științifico-fantastic care a publicat mai mult de 70 de romane. Primele sale cărți au fost publicate sub numele de Brian M. Stableford, dar în cele mai recente a dispărut inițiala din mijlocul numelui și au apărut sub numele Brian Stableford.[8] De asemenea, a folosit pseudonimul Brian Craig pentru câteva lucrări foarte timpurii și, din nou, pentru câteva lucrări mai recente. Pseudonimul derivă din primele nume ale lui și ale unui prieten din timpul școlii din anii 1960, Craig A. Mackintosh, cu care a publicat împreună o lucrare foarte timpurie.[9]

Biografie[modificare | modificare sursă]

Născut la Shipley, Yorkshire, Stableford a obținut o diplomă în biologie la Universitatea din York, în 1969, înainte de a face studii postuniversitare în biologie și mai târziu în sociologie. În 1979 a obținut un doctorat cu tema "Sociologia științifico-fantasticului". Până în 1988, a lucrat ca lector în sociologie la Universitatea din Reading. De atunci a fost un scriitor cu normă întreagă și un lector cu frecvență redusă la mai multe universități pentru cursuri pe teme precum scrierea creativă. El s-a căsătorit de două ori și are un fiu și o fiică din prima căsătorie.

Emortality[modificare | modificare sursă]

Primele șase volume sunt considerate secvența principală și au fost publicate în afara cronologiei seriei; ordinea preferată de citire prezentată mai jos este stabilită din introducerea autorului în volumul 6, Expediția Omega - Omega Expedition.. Această serie este, de asemenea, legată, deși nu întotdeauna în totalitate, de cele 8 colecții și 3 romane cu subtitlul "Tales of the Revolution Biotech", a se vedea mai jos.

Termenul „emortalitate”, destinat să indice apropierea nemuririi, spre deosebire de nemurirea absolută, este recunoscut de către Stableford (în volumul 3, Dark Ararat) că a fost inventat de Alvin Silverstein în cartea sa din 1979, Cucerirea morții - Conquest of Death.

    • "Le Fleurs du Mal: A Tale of the Biotech Revolution" (na), Asimov's October 1994; text corrected here, per the author's introduction: "...I eventually decided to finish the novel version of Les Fleurs du Mal anyway, and completed it in 1992. I wrote the story to what seemed its natural length (68,000 words) but could not sell it...I decided to cut the text drastically and attempt to sell an abridged version of the story to one or other of the sf magazines as a novella. The present text is the 29,000-word result of that cut, although Gardner Dozois—who bought it for publication in the October 1994 issue of Asimov's Science Fiction—insisted on cutting out the gratuitous car chase, thus reducing the published version to 27,000 words."; later expanded into the novel Architects of Emortality, see above
