SF Gateway Omnibus of the Week: Algis Budrys

Our SF Gateway Omnibus of the Week comes from the author of the Hugo-shortlisted Rogue Moon: editor, author, critic – it must be . . .


From the vaults of the SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal introduction to acclaimed author, editor and reviewer, Algis Budrys.



Algis Budrys was one of the few writers who managed to carve out a successful role as an influential critic and editor alongside his fiction writing. Benchmarks, his collection of reviews from the pages of Galaxy Science Fiction, is extremely well-regarded, and for almost two decades he was a judge of the Writers of the Future programme, but it is for his fiction that he is best known. This omnibus collects three of his later works: The Iron Thorn, Michaelmas and Hard Landing.


You can find more of Algis Budrys’s work via his author page on the SF Gateway website, and read more about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
