I'm Mike Resnick, and I am, according to Locus, the trade paper of the science fiction field, the all-time leading award winner, living or dead, for short science fiction. I find this surprising, because I have always considered myself a novelist; at least, writing novels is how I pay my bills. To date I've sold 76 science fiction novels (plus three mysteries, and nine non-fiction books (all of them about writing or science fiction or both). I've sold upward of 280 stories, and even a trio of screenplays. I've edited more than 40 anthologies, and served stints as the consulting science fiction editor for BenBella Books and the executive editor for Jim Baen's Universe; and I'm currently editing Galaxy's Edhe magazine and Stellar Guild Books for Arc Manor Books. I've won 5 Hugos, and been nominated a record 37 times; I've also won a Nebula and other major awards in the USA, France, Poland, Croatia, Spain, Catalonia, China, and Japan, and have been shortlisted for major awards in England, Italy, and Australia. My work has been translated into 26 languages so far. I was Guest of Honor at the 2012 World Science Fiction Convention. My daughter, Laura, is also a science fiction and fantasy (and romance, and travel) writer, and won the Campell Award (for Best New Science Fiction Writer) in 1993. I met my wife Carol at the University of Chicago in 1960, married her in 1961, and this year we celebrate our 57th anniversary.Read more Read less
