H. Beam Piper:
Science Fiction Technology and Ideas
Henry Beam Piper (b. 1904 - d. 1964) was an American writer and gun collector, employed as a detective on the Pennsylvania Railroad until made redundant in the mid-1950s. Though he wrote for other genres, he is best remembered for his science fiction, much of which appeared in Astounding from 1947, when he began with "Time and Time Again" (April 1947 Astounding).
