          Acerca de Ray Bradbury

          Ray Bradbury nació en Waukegan, Illinois, en 1920, y residía en Los Ángeles desde 1934, ciudad en la que falleció el 05 de junio de 2012. Bradbury fue un ávido lector en su juventud además de un escritor aficionado. No pudo asistir a la universidad por razones económicas. Para ganarse la vida, comenzó a vender periódicos. Se formaría como escritor de manera autodidacta a través de libros, comenzando a escribir cuentos con una máquina de escribir. Sus primeros trabajos los vendió a revistas a comienzos de los 40. Entre novelas, colecciones de cuentos, poemas y obras de teatro, ha publicado más de una treintena de libros. Ha desarrollado una amplia actividad en el mundo del cine, el teatro y la televisión. En 1989 fue nombrado Gran Maestro de la SFWA (Asociación de autores de ciencia ficción norteamericanos) y en 1999 recibió el SF Hall of Fame por toda su carrera. 

          Acerca de Lester del Rey

          Lester del Rey (1915-1993) was born Leonard Knapp (but this became known only long after his death). After a spotty, abbreviated education and itinerant existence, he headed to New York where he became almost immediately a significant constituent of Astounding and John Campbell's celebrated Golden Age.Del Rey sold his first story to John Campbell in the first months of Campbell's editorship, and over the next several years he sold him many more, including his female-android story Helen O'Loy (1938), perhaps the first true science fiction romance, and Nerves (1942, novelized in 1956), a brilliant novella of atomic pile disruption, amazingly prescient of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. Del Rey's apostolic and profoundly controversial short novel For I Am A Jealous People (1956), positing a malevolent Deity, is also very well known.Del Rey worked in the Scott Meredith Fee Department in the late 40s, edited science fiction magazines in the early 50s, published some noted juveniles (The Runaway Robot) in the mid-50s, and eventually became the founding editor of Del Rey Books, a fantasy and science fiction imprint under the aegis of Ballantine.In collaboration with his third wife, Judy-Lynn, del Rey's imprint became the most successful fantasy and science fiction publisher in history. The two of them nurtured fantasy writers like Stephen Donaldson, Anne McCaffrey, and Terry Brooks to bestselling status. In 1991, del Rey was named a Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He died only a few months after his retirement from Ballantine.
