Daniel F. Galouye:
Galouye was a test pilot during World War II. From injuries sustained at that time his health deteriorated and eventually led to his early death. His first novel, Dark Universe (1961), was nominated for a Hugo. His 1964 novel Simulacron 3 was filmed in 1999 as The Thirteenth Floor. In 2007 Galouye was honored with the Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award, given to those deceased authors whose work deserves to be "rediscovered."
