Biography:

In a tragically short career as a science fiction author, Stanley Weinbaum revolutionized our concept of alien beings. He created intelligent creatures that were neither bug-eyed monsters nor simple shadows of human good and evil, but rather the logical products of their own environments, equals of humanity but profoundly different.

He died of throat cancer on December 14, 1935 at age 33, just eighteen months after the publication of his first science fiction story, "A Martian Odyssey."
