Alfred Bester (1913–1987)

Trivia:

His first novel, "The Demolished Man" (1953), received the first Hugo Award ever given for Best Novel. The joke among fans is that the book was so great that the World Science Fiction Society had to create an award just to acknowledge it and bestow on it an unforgettable place in science fiction history.
