Bio: Mike Resnick sold his first short story in 1959 at the age of 17. He spent many years writing novels under pseudonyms and editing for several magazines. In the 1980's he returned to writing science fiction, and has become a fixture on the awards ballots since that time. He's won four Hugo awards for his short stories (all four are here at Fictionwise) and one Nebula award (also here!) along with twenty-four Hugo nominations and ten Nebula nominations. His most acclaimed short works are the Kirinyaga stories, based on a terraformed planet made to resemble the African mountain, Mt. Kenya (Kirinyaga). Mike has been to Africa numerous times.
