Author - Galouye, Daniel F.

Birth: February 11, 1920.

Death: September 7, 1976.

Comments: Daniel F. Galouye was an American reporter and science fiction author. After graduating from Louisiana State University he worked writing for newspapers until he enlisted in the U.S. Navy during World War II, serving as a test pilot and flight instructor. He sustained injuries as a result of his wartime service that debilitated him for the rest of his life and contributed to his early death. They did not, however, prevent him from writing numerous stories for publication in the many pulp magazines of the 1950s and 1960s. Like many other authors of the era, Galouye only produced a handful of novel length works, but was a prolific writer of short fiction. As a nice side note, Richard Dawkins has reportedly said that Galouye is his favorite science fiction author.
