James Gunn, emeritus professor of English at the University of Kansas, has published 36 books and nearly 100 short stories. His novels include "The Immortals", "The Joy Makers", "The Listeners", and "The Dreamers". He has published seven collections of short stories, including "Future Imperfect" and "Breaking Point". As a professor, he taught fiction writing and science fiction, including a long-running intensive Writers Workshop in Science Fiction. His books about science fiction include "Alternate Worlds: The Illustrated History of Science Fiction"," Isaac Asimov: The Foundations of Science Fiction", "Inside Science Fiction", and the six-volume "The Road to Science Fiction". He has now pulled together his experience in writing science fiction and helping others write fiction into "The Science of Science-Fiction Writing". He lives in Lawrence, Kansas.
