Robert Sheckley was born in Brooklyn, New York on July 16th, 1928. After attending Columbia High School, and gaining a life-long passion for science fiction, he hitchhiked to California in 1946 where he tried various jobs; landscape gardener, pretzel salesman, barman, milkman, warehouseman, and general laborer “board man” in a hand-painted necktie studio. None of these took him into a career path he wanted. His solution? He joined the US Army for two years. Returning to New York Sheckley enrolled at NYU from where he graduated in 1951 with a degree.

Some were turned into movies, some to TV and of course many into radio drama. On November 20th he had surgery for a brain aneurysm.
