MIKE RESNICK

Mike ResnickMike Resnick (1942 – ) is a prolific American Science Fiction and Fantasy writer (and editor). His stories are often inspired by his wife, Carol. In the 1960s and 1970s, like many of his peers, Resnick wrote sleeze novels under pseudonyms. His visits to Kenya inspired the hallowed Kirinyaga stories, and indeed, fable and legend, references to historical writers and events all wynd their way through his impressive body of work. Humor, sentiment and emotion are also central elements of a typical Resnick story. Many Resnick short stories feature robots and religion. He is a frequent and welcome visitor to conventions.

Once I knew all the secrets of the universe. With no more than a thought I could bring Time to a stop, reverse it in its course, twist it around my finger like a piece of string. By force of will alone I could pass among the stars and the galaxies. I could create life out of nothingness, and turn living, breathing worlds into dust.

Every now and then we strike it rich. Usually we make a profit. Once in a while we just break even. There’s only been one world where we actually lost money; I still remember it — Greenwillow. Except that it wasn’t green, and there wasn’t a willow on the whole damned planet.
