Alexei Panshin

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.

Haldane, the young son of the Get warlord Black Morca, encounters a witch in the woods who unsettles him with dark prophecies. At home, he finds the first prophecy already come true—his father has returned from his raids with a Western princess for Haldane to marry. Morca's ambitions arouse mistrust and anger among the other Get lords, and soon Haldane finds himself fleeing for his life with only a wizard of uncertain skills as his companion. More

New Celebrations comprises 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 resort, to a nice camping venue in a nature reserve, to the masquerade on Delbalso where arboreal peels grunt like clockwork, Villiers tours many odd social circles of the interstellar Nashuite Empire. Hounded by want of cash, by assassins and, worse, bureaucrats, he remains polite, has fun, and makes an impression. More

In 1990, Alexei and Cory Panshin's massive history of science fiction, The World Beyond the Hill, won the Hugo award in competition with books by Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula LeGuin, and Harlan Ellison. Isaac Asimov called it, "The best, the BEST, history of science fiction I have ever read." Exploring the genre from its roots in the Romantic Period to the late 20th century, the Panshins make the case for science fiction as modern mythology. The ElectricStory edition includes hyperlinked contents, index, and notes sections for easy navigation. More
