Happy Birthday, Doris Piserchia

Thanks to our friends at The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction, we see that today is the birthday of much admired author Doris Piserchia, who recently signed with SF Gateway, and whose novels will be made available over the coming months.

Among many others, October 1st is also the birthday of noted anthologist, editor and critic Mike Ashley, Métal Hurlant and Heavy Metal stalwart Richard Corben, and the late, great Donald A. Wollheim, noted fan, writer and legendary editor of Ace Books, and founder of DAW Books.
