I never heard of me

... but you can bet I'm going to look myself up in a big hurry! Thanks to Sunni Maravillosa, who got the link from Scott Bieser. OK, Mr. Google, what do ya got? Holy smokes, I'm an SFWA Grand Master? How did I live this long without knowing about me?!?!?

I am:
Hal Clement (Harry C. Stubbs)
A quiet and underrated master of "hard science" fiction who, among other things, foresaw integrated circuits back in the 1940s.
