Randall Garrett

RandallGarrettRandall Garrett (1927-1987) worked as an industrial chemist before turning his hand to science fiction—a happy decision for everyone, as it turned out. During the 1950s and ’60s he was a stalwart of the U.S. science fiction magazines, producing well over a hundred short stories and novelettes and writing for virtually every title on the stands, but primarily for Astounding (now Analog). A noted humorist, famed for his delightful Lord Darcy series, even Garrett’s most serious works (Anything You Can Do, for example) contain comic or satirical undertones. He was one of the first writers to appreciate the importance of conventions and an ingratiating personality in building a strong fan base.
