We’s like to wish a Happy Birthday to the very talented Phillip Mann, who turns 75 today!
Probably best known for his Land Fit for Heroes sequence, Phillip fell silent in the mid-90s, not publishing any new SF until 2013 when <ahem> Gollancz published his critically acclaimed The Disestablishment of Paradise, which was shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award and John W. Campbell Memorial Award.
If you’d like to know more about Phillip and The Disestablishment of Paradise, you’re in luck! He wrote this fascinating piece about his career, books – and a potted history of Gollancz – for his blog, to celebrate publication.
Happy Birthday, Phillip!
