About Author

Mark Clifton

Mark Clifton (1906-1963) was a science fiction writer from the United States who shared the second Hugo Award for best novel. In May 1952, he debuted with the widely anthologized narrative "What Have I Done?" The "Bossy" sequence, regarding computers with intelligence that is artificial, was written either independently or in collaboration with Alex Apostolides or Frank Riley; as well as the "Ralph Kennedy" series, which is more humorous and was mostly written solo, such as the novel When They Come from Space, which is with one collaboration with Apostolides. Clifton's breakthrough novel, They'd Rather Be Right (also known as The Forever Machine), co-written with Riley, was serialized in Astounding during 1954 and won the Hugo Award. "Star Bright," the very first of three entries in Horace Gold's Galaxy (July 1952), is Clifton's other best-known short tale. It is about a super-intelligent infant with psychic skills. According to Clifton's correspondence, Gold "editorially savaged" the piece, which was significantly reduced or altered. The narrative has been compared highly to Kuttner was and Moore's "Mimsy Were the Borogoves," that had been released nine years previously in Astounding magazine.
