Author Biography - John Wyndham

John Wyndham is the pen name of John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris (1903-1969), the son of an English barrister. The boy's parents separated when he was eight, and after attending various boarding schools, he lived off family money while trying his hand--unsuccessfully--at careers such as law, commercial illustration, and advertising. In 1924 he turned to writing, and within a number of years he was selling short stories, mostly science fiction, to pulp magazines in America, as John Beynon or John Beynon Harris. During World War II, he served behind the lines in the British army, and in 1951 he published The Day of the Triffids, his first novel as John Wyndham, and a tremendous success. John Wyndham's six other novels include The Kraken Wakes and The Midwich Cuckoos. Christopher Priest has published eleven novels, three short-story collections, and a number of other books, including critical works, biographies, novelizations, and children's nonfiction. In 1996 Priest won the World Fantasy Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel The Prestige. His most recent novel, The Separation, won both the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the British Science Fiction Association Award.
