Aelita Award

The most prestigious Russian sf award, founded in 1981 by the Russian Federation Writers' Union and Ural'skii sledopyt ["Urals Pathfinder"] magazine. The latter was published from the city of Ekaterinburg (Sverdlovsk until 1991), so the ceremony is held there as part of the annual Aelita Convention. The winner is chosen by a panel of judges. Although instituted as an award for the best single sf work published in the previous year, it appears to have become in effect a "Life Achievement" ...

Hammond, Clement Milton

(1859-1903) US newspaper editor and author, whose "Then and Now: Anarchy in the Year 2085" (1884-1885 Liberty) as by "Josephine D'Aujourdhui", a book-length Utopia never published in book form, argues for a temperate anarchism. In The Doctor's Mistake: Or What Myrta Saw: An Experiment with a Life (1888) with Charles Howard Montague, a complexly melodramatic plot – at least one Reincarnation seems to occur – boils down to an experiment in Identity Transfer which demonstrates the ...

Campbell, Spencer

Publication schedule, nominally bimonthly, was somewhat erratic. / A magazine of generally low-quality Horror fiction with a distinctly erotic flavour, with such lurid titles as "The Naked Slaves of the Master of Hell" (October 1970) and "Trapped in the Vampire's Web of Icy Death!" (December 1970). ...

East, Rebecca

Pseudonym of US author Rebecca Warner (1951-    ), a psychology professor at the University of New Hampshire. Her first novel A.D. 62: Pompeii (2003), is a Time Travel tale whose protagonist – a twenty-first-century expert in the period – is sent on an exploratory mission to the first century Roman empire, but is stranded there, and to survive becomes a kind of Scheherezade, telling stories out of her centuries of lore to her masters, for she has been enslaved. ...

Robinson, Roger

(1943-    ) UK computer programmer, bibliographer and publisher, active in UK Fandom for many years. The Writings of Henry Kenneth Bulmer (1983 chap; rev 1984 chap) is an exhaustive Bibliography of one of the most prolific sf writers, and Who's Hugh?: An SF Reader's Guide to Pseudonyms (1987) is similarly exhaustive in its listing of Pseudonyms. Criticized at first for its failure to annotate its findings – so that, for instance, pseudonyms used for sf could not be ...
