About Author

Kris Neville

Kris Ottman Neville (May 9, 1925 – December 23, 1980) was a California-based American science fiction writer. He was born in the city of St. Louis. His debut work of science fiction was published in 1949. His most renowned work, the novella Bettyann, is regarded as a science fiction classic. The following biographical note about Kris Neville was written by well-known science fiction writer and critic Barry N. Malzberg in his introduction to Neville's story Ballenger's People in the 1979 Doubleday anthology Neglected Visions: Kris Neville could have been one of the ten most honored science fiction writers of his generation; instead, after conquering the field early on, he virtually abandoned it and established himself as the world's leading lay authority on epoxy resins, collaborating on a series of specialized texts that have become standard works in their field. I can't blame him for making this decision, which was clearly well thought out. Neville, who sold his first story in 1949 and fifteen more by 1952, realized early on that the boundaries of the field in the 1950s were simply too close to contain the kind of work he would have to undertake if he wanted to progress as a writer, and he quit.
