About the author (from Wikipedia)
Robert Charles Wilson (born 1953) is a contemporary science fiction author.
His work has won the Hugo Award (for the novel Spin), the John W. Campbell Memorial Award (for the novel The Chronoliths), the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award (for the novelette "The Cartesian Theater"), three Aurora Awards (for the novels Blind Lake and Darwinia, and the short work "The Perseids"), and the Philip K. Dick Award (for the novel Mysterium).
In addition to the novels listed below, he is the author of the short-story collection The Perseids, set in Toronto. His first publication appeared in the February 1975 issue of Analog Science Fiction, under the name Bob Chuck Wilson.
A literate and thoughtful writer, he combines sensitive, nuanced characterization with mind-bogglingly big hard-SF ideas, resulting in his books often being New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Author Stephen King has called Wilson "probably the finest science-fiction author now writing".
Wilson's literary agent is Shawna McCarthy, and his most recent books (including Blind Lake, Spin, and Axis) have been edited by Teresa Nielsen Hayden of Tor Books. His novella Julian: A Christmas Story (2006) was published by PS Publishing and was nominated for a Hugo Award. Wilson's current project (2007) is expanding Julian into a novel, under contract to Tor Books.
