Über den Autor
Terry Gene Carr (1937 - 1987) was a United States science fiction fan, author, editor and writing instructor. Carr discovered science fiction fandom in 1949, where he became an enthusiastic publisher of fanzines, which later helped open his way into the commercial publishing world. (He was one of the two fans responsible for the hoax fan 'Carl Brandon' after whom the Carl Brandon Society takes its name.) Despite a long career as a science fiction professional, he continued to participate as a fan until his death. He was nominated five times for Hugos for Best Fanzine (1959-1961, 1967-1968), winning in 1959, was nominated three times for Best Fan Writer (1971-1973), winning in 1973, and was Fan Guest of Honor at ConFederation in 1986.
