Gateway Essentials: Donald Moffitt

Donald Moffitt was born in Boston on this day in 1931. A former public relations executive, industrial filmmaker, and ghostwriter, he wrote fiction on and off for more than twenty years under his own name and an assortment of pen names. His first full-length science fiction novel and the first book of any genre to be published under his own name was The Jupiter Theft, which is our recommended starting point.

You can find more of Donald Moffitt’s work via his Author page on the Gateway website, and read about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
