Happy birthday, Robert Silverberg!

Robert Silverberg is 74 today. His children’s book Revolt on Alpha C is one of the first science fiction books I can remember reading (it was his first novel, published in 1955, four years before I was born). Much, much later, I learned quite a bit about sex I didn’t previously know by reading his The World Inside. And in between, and since, I’ve read a great many more wonderful books he’s written.

I haven’t exactly met him, although we did exchange a couple of words at the snack bar at the World Science Fiction Convention in Toronto. Maybe I’ll do better than that in Denver this year.

In any even, happy birthday!
