Walter M. Miller, Jr, is best remembered as the author of A Canticle for Leibowitz, which has been universally recognized as one of the greatest novels of modern science fiction. But in addition to writing that deeply felt and eloquent book, he produced many shorter works of fiction of stunning originality and power. His profound interest in religion and his innate literary gifts combined perfectly in the production of such works as “The Darfstellar,” for which he won a Hugo in 1955, “Conditionally Human,” “I, Dreamer,” and “The Big Hunger,” all of which are included in this brilliant and essential collection.

Author Bio: Walter M. Miller Jr.

Walter M. Miller, Jr., (1923–1996) grew up in the American South and enlisted in the Army Air Corps a month after Pearl Harbor. He spent most of World War II as a radio operator and tail gunner, participating in more than fifty-five combat sorties, among them the controversial destruction of the Benedictine abbey at Monte Cassino, the oldest monastery in the Western world. Fifteen years later he wrote A Canticle for Leibowitz. The sequel, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman, published posthumously and completed by a different author, followed nearly forty years later.
