Author - Steele, Allen M.

Birth: January 19, 1958.

Death: Still alive and writing science fiction.

Comments: Allen M. Steele is an American science fiction author most known for his "Near Future, Near Space" series of stories and novels that focuses on characters dealing with the realistic engineering problems that working in space would pose. His fiction tends to focus on the working-class denizens of the future - the blue collar workers who would have their hands covered in engine grease. He has won two Hugo Awards for his short fiction.

Steele graduated from New England College, and holds a Masters degree from the University of Missouri. Prior to becoming established as a fiction writer, Steele worked as a journalist for several years. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Space Frontier Foundation and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. He maintains a website to promote his work named Allen Steele. Oddly, despite some suggestions to the contrary, the website "" does not appear to be related to Steele's work, but is rather an unrelated Japanese page.
