Ben Bova is one of the most important forces in the history of Science Fiction. Just hitting the high points of his career is enough for a whole resume from anyone else: SIX time winner of the Hugo Award, former editor of Analog, the most influential magazine in all of Science Fiction (the successor of Astounding where so many SF legends published their most important stories), former editor of Omni, which H. Paul Honsinger regards as the coolest magazine ever published, former President of the Science Fiction Writers of America, and is the author of more than 115 books, one of which is his new political thriller, Power Surge. He is known for his articulateness and eclectic intelligence. He is perhaps best known for the "Grand Tour" series of novels which is considered a mainstay of modern science fiction. Visit his official website.
H. Paul Honsinger, an emerging voice in Military Science Fiction, is a retired attorney who wrote his first novel, To Honor You Call Us, at age 52. He is the author of the "Man of War" Trilogy, which tells the story of 28 year old Cajun Max Robichaux who suddenly finds himself in command of one of the most troubled warships in the Union Space Navy during a war for humanity's survival.
