Robert Silverberg ("Silverbob" to his friendsnote ) is an enormously prolific science fiction and fantasy writer, and winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards.Starting his career in the 1950s, Silverberg was an instant hit, earning a special Hugo for Best New Writer. During this period, he used several pen-names, including David Osborne and Calvin M. Knox, as well as his own name. He also regularly collaborated with Randall Garrett; the two usually published as "Robert Randall".It was in the sixties, though, that Silverberg really found his voice. The "New Wave" movement was pushing science fiction toward more literary experimentation, and Silverberg, though never actually a part of that movement, was inspired to write more complex and mature works that opened up new audiences for him. Some of his works from this period, including the novels To Live Again, The World Inside, and Dying Inside, as well as the award-winning novella "Nightwings", are still considered among his best.After briefly retiring in the mid-seventies for health and personal reasons, Silverberg returned in 1980 with his smash hit, Lord Valentine's Castle, the first book of the Majipoor Series, which now has over half a dozen novels and many short stories. He continues to write a wide variety of SF. In 2004, he was named a SFWA Grand Master.His short story "To See The Invisible Man" was adapted for a 1980s episode of The Twilight Zone.
