Robert Silverberg în 2005

Robert Silverberg (15 ianuarie 1935, Brooklyn, New York) este un autor american, cel mai bine cunoscut pentru lucrările sale science fiction, de mai multe ori premiate cu Hugo și Nebula.

Viața[modificare | modificare sursă]

Robert Silverberg s-a născut în Brooklyn, New York. Cititor avid, încă din copilărie, el a început cu prezentarea unor povestiri pentru reviste de science fiction, în primii ani ai adolescenței. A urmat cursurile Universității Columbia și a primit titlul BA în limba engleză literatură în 1956. Romanul publicat pentru prima dată, o carte pentru copii numită Revolta pe Alpha C, a apărut în 1955, și a câștigat primul său Hugo anul următor, pentru "cel mai bun scriitor nou". Pentru următorii patru ani, prin numărul său, el a scris un milion de cuvinte pe an, mai ales pentru reviste și Doubles Ace. În 1959, piața de science fiction s-a prăbușit, și Silverberg a transformat capacitatea lui de a scrie copios la alte domenii, de la non-ficțiune istorică cercetat cu atenție la SOFTCORE pornografie.
