Literary birthdays, December 28th.

28 12 2008

Natal day round-up for 12/28.

Science fiction authors whose birthdays are today:

* Nichelle Nichols – not merely the actress who brought Lt. Uhura to life, but a wordsmith in her own right. A partial bibliography can be found here.

* George Zebrowski – a writer of many credits in short fiction and novel-length works, as can be seen here.

Children’s authors whose birthdays are today:

* Carol Ryrie Brink, best known for the Newbery Award winner CADDIE WOODLAWN.

* Emily Cheney Neville, whose book IT’S LIKE THIS, CAT had a profound influence on me, for reasons not least of which was its New York City setting.

Felicitations to you, whether you celebrate in this world or the next.
