Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most prolific, honored, and widely read science fiction writers, Robert Silverberg has forged a professional career that began in the 1950s and has flourished in succeeding decades. After first gaining fame for his magazine fiction, Silverberg embraced the ideals and methods of literary science fiction in the late 1960s and crafted a number of novels marked by symbolism and irony. After a period of silence in the 1970s, he resumed his career. Despite the appeal of his novels, Silverberg's achievement still eludes easy assessment. This book offers a broad study of Silverberg's growth as a writer, following his career from his early apprenticeship period to his later, fully mature books. Examining not only his work but also the literary contexts that shaped him, Chapman captures well Silverberg's development as a writer.

Synopsis:

Studies the evolution of Robert Silverberg's writings from the 1950s to the present.
