Read full description of the books:



Part of a six-volume publication in celebration of William Tenn, The Square Root of Man contains some of his earliest work, including the very first story ever published, "Alexander the Bait," from 1946. Even then, Tenn's wry sense of humor was in evidence. By comparison, this collection also contains a rather wistfully acid comment on the latest scene, "The Lemon-Green Spaghetti-Loud Dynamite-Dribble Day." If you think it impossible to be both wistful and acid at the same time, you should read William Tenn. And especially his first full-length novel, Of Men And Monsters.

Contents:

Alexander the Bait
The Last Bounce
She Only Goes Out at Night
My Mother Was a Witch
The Jester
Confusion Cargo
Venus Is a Man's World
Consulate
The Lemon-Green Spaghetti-Loud Dynamite-Dribble Day

Read information about the author

Ebook The Square Root Of Man read Online! William Tenn is the pseudonym of Philip Klass. He was born in London on May 9, 1920, and immigrated to the United States with his parents before his second birthday and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. After serving in the United States Army as a combat engineer in Europe, he held a job as a technical editor with an Air Force radar and radio laboratory and was employed by Bell Labs.

He began writing in 1945 and has written academic articles, essays, two novels, and more than 60 short stories.

His first story, 'Alexander the Bait' was published in Astounding Science Fiction in 1946. Stories like 'Down Among the Dead Men', 'The Liberation of Earth', and 'The Custodian' quickly established him as a fine, funny, and thoughtful satirist.

Tenn is best-known as a satirist, and by works such as "On Venus Have We Got a Rabbi" and "Of Men and Monsters."

His stories and articles have been widely anthologized, a number of them in best-of -the-year collections. From 1966, he has been a Professor Emeritus of English and Comparative Literature at The Pennsylvania State University, where he taught, among other things, a popular course on science fiction.

In 1999, he was honored as Author Emeritus by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America at their annual Nebula Awards Banquet.

Phil Klass has been married to Fruma since 1957. They live in suburban Pittsburgh. Their daughter, Adina, lives in eastern Pennsylvania.
