Brian Wilson Aldiss is basically an English writer who was born on the 18th of august 1925. He is an anthology editor and an English writer who is best known for his short stories and science fiction novels. He was married to Margaret Manson from 1965 to 1997 and Olive Fortesque from 1948 to 1965

His Early Life and Career

Brian Aldiss father ran a store department that had been established by his grandfather; his whole family lived above that store. He commenced writing stories at the tender age of 3 years. His own mother used to bind the rolls on where he had written the stories before putting them on a shelf.

When Aldiss got to the age of 6 years, he was sent to a boarding school in Devon (West Buck-land School). He later on studied at the famous Framingham College. He enrolled in the Royal Signals in 1943 during the 2nd world war. His experience in the army greatly inspired him to write his 2nd and 3rd books’ Soldier Erect’ and A Rude Awakening’ respectively

The Post -War Era

When the war subsided, he worked at Oxford as a bookseller. He wrote numerous short-pieces for booksellers; this attracted Charles Monteith’s attention who was an editor at Faber and Faber’ who were renowned British Publishers. As a result Aldiss’ first book that was known as The Bright Font Diaries was published- It was a 200-page novel that was in a diary form that talked about the life’s and times of a sales assistant who used to work inside a bookshop. At this period he also began writing science fictions for several magazines. Several of Brian Aldiss’ books appeared in three monthly- issues of The New Worlds’-This was an important magazine that was edited by Carnell

In the year 1954, The Observer Newspaper’ ran several competitions for short stories. Aldiss’ story Not for an Age’ was voted as the third best story by readers in its category.

His accolades

Although The Bright Fount Diaries’ experienced some success, Aldiss made a confession that he always enjoyed writing science fiction stories. This delighted publishers who had wide market bases of millions of science-fiction fans in respectable places. Brian Aldiss made his way into writers’ hall of fame when his fiction books got published. His novel was a collection of stories entitled Time and Nathaniel’ as well as Space; these books were published by Faber in 1957. At this time, the income that he got from writing had matched the wages that he used to get paid in the bookshop. He therefore made a decision of becoming a full-time writer

Aldiss led the park when the vote for the most- promising author commenced in 1958 at the World-Science-Fiction-Convention. He was elected as President of the British- Science and Fiction- Association in the year 1960. He served as the Literary Editor of the famous Oxford Mail Newspaper between 1958 and 1969. In 1964, his longtime collaborator Harry Harrison began the 1st ever science journal criticism by the name Science Fiction Horizons’. During its time the Science Fiction Horizons’ published reviews and articles by authors like James Blish.

Brian Aldiss was also a Great Anthologist

Besides doing his own writings, Brian Aldiss was also a great anthologist. He wrote several stories that typified several science fiction themes. He also wrote the Best Fantasy Stories’. In 1961, he wrote anthologies concerning reprinted short science fictions for British publishers Penguin Books’. His stint here was remarkably successful because his works underwent several reprints. He followed up with two other anthology stories i.e. More Penguin Science Fiction in 1963 and Yet More penguin Science Fiction’ in 1964. These anthologies were hugely successful as compared to the first ones. All the three were published together in The Penguin Science Fiction Omnibus’ of 1973. In mid 1970’s , he produced numerous large collections of classic-grand scale fictions under titles’ Space Opera’ in 1974, Space Odysseys in 1975, Galactic Empires and Evil Earths in 1976, as well as Perilous Planets in 1978- they were all quite successful. At round this time also, he edited a voluminous Science Fiction Art in 1975; it had a wide selection of artworks that included Pulps and Magazines

The planetary probes

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, several researches indicated that the Venus wasn’t completely a hot and tropical jungle as mostly depicted in science fictions. He together with Harry Harrison edited an anthology referred to as Farewell Fantastic Venus’ these were reprinted stories that were based on the pre-probe ideas of the Venus. Together with Harrison, he also wrote a series of numerous anthologies that included The Year’s best Science Fiction’ from 1968 to 1976

He also invented a short story known as the Minisaga’. The daily telegraph ran competitions for the best Minisaga then. Aldiss was privileged to be the judge during those years. He edited several anthologies about several Minisagas in later years

His life in the former Soviet Union

He traveled to the Yugoslavia where he encountered Yugoslav fans in Slovenia and Ljubljana. He published a travel-book about Yugoslavia that was entitled Cities and Stones’. That was his only assignment in that whole genre. He also published alternative fantasy stories that included The Story of The Doomed King’ in 1968. This book talked about Serbian kings who were in their middle ages. He also wrote a novel known as The Malacia Tapestry that was about alternative Dalmatia

Brian Aldiss was a Great Artist as well
