About the Author
ROBERT SILVERBERG is a giant in the sci-fi genre, with four Hugo Awards and six Nebula Awards to his name. He was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 1999 and named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Guild in 2005. At present, there is a resurgence of interest in Silverberg's short fiction. His short story "Needle in a Timestack" (included in Time and Time Again) is being adapted for the screen by Oscar-winning writer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave).
"Robert Silverberg is an enduring voice in science fiction, and eighteen of his extraterrestrial-themed short stories and novellas are included in Alien Archives, collected for a new generation looking for life beyond our stars. . . .Proving that human beings are sometimes the most alien creatures of all, Alien Archives is a delight for anyone who still wants to believe." --Foreword Reviews

"The latest in a series of Silverberg's collections from Three Rooms Press focuses on stories about alien-human encounters, ranging from the deadly to the benign....Alien Archives still shows that Silverberg's reputation as a skilled storyteller is well-deserved; it is still worth a look for those interested in a sampling of the SF Grandmaster's prolific short story work." --Booklist

"Reaching back to the beginning of his career, SFWA Grand Master Silverberg collects 18 stories featuring alien encounters, some fond and some fearful. . . Silverberg fans and readers interested in the history of SF will find this worthwhile." --Publishers Weekly

"So ideationally and emotionally rich that there is no reason that discerning non-genre readers shouldn't warmly embrace them." --Los Angeles Review of Books

"One of science fiction's modern masters . . . His words and his work have shaped the whole direction of the field." ―Chicago Sun-Times

"Done Silverberg's way, science fiction is a fine art." ―Associated Press

"The John Updike of science fiction." ―The New York Times Book Review

"A master of his craft and imagination." ―Los Angeles Times

"With dazzling prose and original plotlines, Silverberg proves himself to be a master of the genre." --Foreword Reviews

"Engaging and exciting speculative fiction." --Booklist

"The leaps of imagination are fresh as ever." --Publishers Weekly
