T. L. Sherred
(August 27, 1915 – April 16, 1985)
Sherred's stories were often set in Detroit and featured the down-to-earth laborers he knew through his mundane career in the automotive field, where he advanced from tool rooms to technical writing and public relations. He published few works of fiction, but his novella “E for Effort” (1947), about a time viewer, was voted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.
He wrote one novel, Alien Island (1970); an incomplete sequel was finished after his death by his friend Lloyd Biggle, Jr., and published as Alien Main.
His papers are at the University of Kansas.
