Alexei Panshin

Bio: Alexei Panshin had ancestors on the Mayflower--and his father got off the boat in 1923. He is descended both from Salem witches and from their prosecutors. He was raised in a solar-powered home designed by the architect of the House of Tomorrow. Of course, he grew up to write science fiction. Alexei Panshin's first novel, Rite of Passage, won the Nebula Award of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He's also shared a Hugo Award with his wife, Cory, for The World Beyond the Hill, an account of the conceptual development of science fiction. Recently, he's been writing song lyrics and assembling an evolving record of his understanding of Robert Heinlein. This work-in-progress can be found at his website, Alexei Panshin's The Abyss of Wonder.

1 Rite of Passage [MultiFormat]
by Alexei Panshin
  After the destruction of Earth, humanity has established itself precariously among a hundred planets.

2 Earth Magic [MultiFormat]
by Alexei Panshin, Cory Panshin

He returns home to find the first of the prophecies already come true--his father has been off raiding the more civilized countries to the West and has returned with a Western princess fo... more info>> (Published: 1978)

4 New Celebrations: The Adventures of Anthony Villiers [MultiFormat]
by Alexei Panshin
  Many books have been hailed as "in the tradition of" The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Not this one. It came first. It may, however, be something of a precursor. A space-operatic comedy of manners and meditation on life, a cheerful noir thriller, New Celebrations contains the first three, and so far only, novels about the enigmatic Anthony Villiers, a young man who trails both a mysterious past and a six-foot furred toad companion whose papers are not in order. From a space-station gambling ... more info>> (Published: 1968)
