Poul William Anderson (1926 – 2001) was an American science fiction author who wrote during a Golden Age of the genre. Poul Anderson also authored several works of fantasy. He was educated at the University of Minnesota where he gained a degree in physics in 1948.
He was the sixth President of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, taking office in 1972.
Much of Anderson’s science fiction is thoroughly grounded in science (with the addition of dubious but standard speculations such as faster-than-light travel). His stories often depicted a shipwrecked or stranded hero's struggle to survive in the hostile environment of an alien world through ingenuity and sheer drive.
