(August 3, 1904 – April 25, 1988)

Clifford D. Simak, an American pro writer, was born on a farm in Wisconsin along the Mississippi River valley where so many of his stories were set. He taught school before living and working as a newspaperman in a number of Upper Midwest towns and finally in Minneapolis where he helped revive the MFS after World War II.

His writing career started in the 1930s and continued almost until his death. His best known novel may be the fix-up City (1952), though Way Station may be his best. Way Station tells the story of an alien stopping point in rural Wisconsin. It won the 1964 Best Novel Hugo.
